Social Media Constraints

Constraints often improve an artist’s work. I don’t consider myself an “artist”, but I do undertake creative endeavors. Writing and photography are forms of art, I just don’t like to compare anything I do with so many other somewhat unrelated fields like painting. I have found that limits do free your time and keep your works withing boundaries, financial and otherwise.

A constraint I’m adding is far, far less time on Facebook. More time walking, writing and photographing. Less time arguing the finer points of politics and other things that Facebook is a lacking platform for.

It’s already led me to a Sunday afternoon hiking in a field. That’s when this photo was captured.
