“I never did a day’s work in my life, it was all fun” ~ Thomas Alva Edison
When opportunity knocks you have to answer the door, right? Hmm, I’m not so sure about that one. Who says Opportunity makes housecalls? If you think about it, even the winners of the powerball must first make the effort to exchange their hard earned money to buy a ticket. As Thomas Edison, one of Mankind’s most influential creative’s astutely observed, “opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work“.
In my experience, opportunitiy is a kind of omnipresent, latent circumstance that is waiting to be claimed. If I put myself in a position to cross paths with it, and if I am patient, and if I believe, more often than not I end up banging loudly on opportunity’s door.
Over the course of the past week, Tammy and I had the opportunity to visit the same general area of the Cuchara River Valley to film evening interviews for projects that we are working on. On both occasions, the interviews ended just before sunset and we seized the opportunity to capture the valley in the most incredible light.
