"Great work is doing stuff that gives back to the world, as well as serving your own purposes…."

“Great work is doing stuff that gives back to the world, as well as serving your own purposes. It’s the difference between writing things down to remember them versus writing things down to teach others.”

I’m on a train back to London from running a masterclass for poets in education at the Contact in Manchester, and this quote popped up in my feed reader. Nice.

Dear Manchester poets— it was a pleasure. So much more to talk about, so little time. Let’s do it again soon, yeah? ;)

Sometimes life gets in the way. I’ve been back from Latvia…



Sometimes life gets in the way.

I’ve been back from Latvia for weeks, and although I’ve processed (most of) the rolls I shot there, I haven’t found (made?) the time to post them anywhere. There’s a box of rolls I’ve shot since then that still need to be developed. And I’m starting to question whether post-by-post photoblogging is really what I need to be doing right now. With my process being so resolutely analogue at the moment, my post-rate is much slower. It probably makes more sense to post sets/galleries. Which means I may well kill this blog and start another Wordpress (I’ve got a multisite installation, which makes setting up a new Wordpress site from my Jacobsamlarose.com domain as easy as pressing a button…)

Decisions, decisions. In the meantime, plenty of things to do. And when it all gets a little too busy, it’s nice to be reminded of a beach in Latvia, sand falling through fingers, with time to laugh and be.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. Then go and do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
