Sharing my corn

January has been a slow month. I have not taken any pictures except for the ones of the snow and its okay.
It is a good exercise to take the time to breath and observe around, except this year I have also taken time to do something else: I am helping other photographers in their journey.

While other people lives by competition, I grow when others succeed...

 
There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn.
Every year he won the award for the best grown corn.
One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

“How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.

“Why sir,” said the farmer, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.
 

So is with our lives...
Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches.
The fact is, none of us truly wins, until we all win!!" 

 

 

Sorry there aren't any lovebirds pictures today here.
I'm currently booking weddings and consultations for 2016,  and taking some time to spread my corn :)
