Dinosaur Bones

by Lisa November. 14, 2007 4453 views

I was telling Bolder [photoblog.com] about my dream of having a gallery showing someday. There, I said it out loud. (It has more power if you say it out loud, you know).

Anyway, when I was working on this post, it reminded me of dinosaur bones and that reminded me I had dreamed of being an archaeologist once. Just like Indy. ;) I wanted to know all the secrets of the past!

And I was on the path…I was going to college as an Anthropology major fresh out of high school.

But then I made a couple (a lot) of wrong turns and I ended up in accounting instead. Counting coins instead of uncovering them.

So that dream, along with others, was buried like so many bleached bones.

I just might dig some of them up again…

You can run & you can hide, but your dreams will always find you. They are relentless. Follow them please!!

I really know how you feel when you speak of not doing what you once wanted to do. When I was a child I wanted to be an architect. I did not end up going to school for that. I am in a totally unrelated field and I kind of wish I could go back to school.

I would like to show my work one day. The hard part for me is figuring out when I would be ready.

Your images are great. I would pay to see a showing of your work any day.

you can do it! this is gorgeous, and dream hard enough.. and talk about your dreams loud enough and you will find enough strength to make them real! i don't know if there are 'wrong turns' in life, just minor detours. who knows, maybe you can have a gallery someday of all the coins you've uncovered. the coins i don't think need to be physical, metaphorically they have power and mystery as well.

i think too often dreams should be accounted for fifo rather than lifo. i once wanted to be a photojournalist and a journalism professor scoffed me out of the idea.

LOVE this set! I can hardly wait to visit your gallery showing!!
(I don't imagine that it helps much, but it's interesting how many similarities there are in what it takes to be an accountant and an archeologist.......like precision in categorizing, meticulous methods, counting things to put together a picture of how an organization...or civilization....works......)

I don't think there are many of us who, at 18, could have foreseen where we would be today. This is certainly a million miles from where I saw myself. But, as long as you are breathing you have the opportunity to pursue the things you love. I know I am.

I hope to visit the gallery to see an exhibition of your photographs covering your latest archaeological find.

I empathise with your words ... how many wrong turns and choices have we all made ?
