The Eye of The Needle!

Yes I Can
"It is easier for a blind man to thread a needle, than a man with vision and no passion to try."~Rosemary Aubut~
It is the serenade of chalk, greeting a blackboard, enveloping my ear drums, when I hear the phrase,"I can't." Yes you can, just give it a try, darn it! 
The phrase "I can't" is usually based upon the fear of, I don't know how, or I don't have to know how, someone else can do it for me! How often have we heard people say, I hate computers! Do they really hate them or is it that they don't understand them. There is no harm in trying, and maybe, just maybe, you will succeed. Turn that passion into perseverance, water it with a little patience, a savory recipe for triumph. All learned skills build upon each other, cementing a foundation, nurturing the confidence to try again, if need be!
The composition of this photo is nothing new and I have seen it several times before. I have always admired it's skillful, simplicity. I have learned a few techniques with my camera today and will definitely try this again, maybe in a different setting next time. Got to shed more light on that needle!

If f u notice the box 'funny' has been checked...that's me! At first glance (early a.m.) I thought to myself, as I do so very often, that is an object that I take pride in knowing I still have the keen perseverence it takes for someome with my eyesight perception, such as it is at this season of my life, can do. Boy, am I proud of it too! Then, I read on....
Thank you Rosemary. Good post! Neat photo!
