Our lives are full of contradictions.  It’s easy to call out the hypocrisy of others but not so easy to concede to your own shortcomings. I, for example, say I have no time for just about anything these days, and yet I find time to tediously adjust a manual lens to get the focus on this flower just perfect. But in retrospect, I would rather be a little hypocritical than be blind to understated beauty, regardless of schedule or length of my to-do list.
