Be water

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.”
~ Bruce Lee

  4. Great great quote! And it helps give me perspective on something my boss told me once. He called me water and told me not to worry about succeeding in my career. I guess he is a Bruce Lee fan... who would have known.

  5. I love this quote! It stood out to me when I watched "Dragon". I love the concept. It's a hard thing to to but really important. Wonderful photos, MJ. Thanks for the shoutout!! :) xoxo

  11. okay okay I'll tell you :), it was a cheapo disposable underwater camera!! fujifilm underwater quicksnap ;). It was so much fun and the kids had a great time using it too ;). A few difficulties--holding breath while snapping is hard, viewfinder is teeeny tiny, and wearing goggles while looking through viewfinder is ridiculously tough. But try it!! So fun!!
