Buachaille Etive Mor

If there's one thing this shot taught me, it's that preparation is everything. 

This is one of my favorite shots from our Scotland trip and it almost didn't happen. I arrived at this spot in pouring rain, and given I had a very limited time in the Highlands, my choices were either a) wait it out or b) walk away. Of course, with a view like this, you wait it out. So, having researched this location before, I set up my gear exactly where I wanted, with exactly the settings I needed, and proceeded to wait for almost an hour in the cold rain with my jacket protecting the camera and midges proclaiming open season on any exposed skin. 

I got about a 10 minute window where the skies above me parted and I was able to fire off some quick shots before the rain returned with a vengeance and I had to run back to the car to avoid losing my precious gear to the elements.

Shot on a Canon 5D Mark II with a 17-40mm f/4 L lens at 19mm, f/11, 6s, ISO100

Drugs, like so many things in life, are all about context and intention. There are no absolutes.

Quote: In 1980, “Ecstasy” was “Empathy.”

As consciousness rises, so too does the understanding of which substances actually lift us up and which ones merely numb us out. 

I've used this drug many times way back when; never in a club! Always alone or with one or a few other people, as a heart-opening and mind-enlightening experience. 

Alas, it's too often mixed or tainted with other things. That's one of the reasons I am in favor of legalization of "drugs" so that we have quality control, remove the criminal elements that bring violence where none is needed, and empower individuals to make their own decisions about their own lives.

I loved this episode - the balance of humor and intimacy and a bit of raw commentary of aspects of the human condition. Terry Gross being interviewed by Marc Maron.

Interesting food for thought, from a man.

"One of my own male role models, Kurt Cobain, said, “Women are the only future in rock and roll”; I’d apply that to culture in general. Not that women are genetically or inherently superior, not that there’s nothing wrong with our culture’s idea of femininity—but the most toxic behaviors, the ones that killed the world and continue to kill it? They’re all packaged together in the culturally approved madness we call masculinity. And our best hope might be handing the reins to the half of the population that wasn’t raised to call that madness their birthright."

via @arthur_affect on Twitter.  

I'd agree that elements of masculinity are indeed toxic - but so are aspects of femininity. The issue is that the toxic maleness has been in charge for so long. I'd love to see a #consciousness   shift whereby the elements of collaboration and self-reflection (more feminine than masculine IMO) get several seats at the table. And, we preserve the masculine strengths of getting results - we change our ideas of the desired results. 

Men and Women - your thoughts?

That is good news. #getoffyourcase  !
Contrary to what some job seekers may believe, employers are looking at social profiles mostly looking for positives. Sixty percent say they’re looking for information that backs up the candidate’s qualifications, and 56 percent say they want to see if the candidate has a professional online persona.

However, 21 percent admit that they are, in fact, looking for reasons not to hire a candidate.
