Hmming & Hawing

I am thinking about purchasing a new camera. I am just not sure if I want to commit that much money to that purchase. It is a hard decision for me to make because that is money I could commit to one of my other hobbies. I have so many hobbies, sometimes I feel like I am the ultimate Jane of All Trades. I was just discussing with my hubby how hard it is not to have one stand out natural gift. I would love to be a stand out artist/photographer/seamstress/fiber artist/cook/builder.... something... if I could just find that thing I excel at. I can sew a pillow, I can install a new doorbell, I can knit a scarf, I can take a really good photo, I can cook good spaghetti, I can build a document in any Windows Office Application.... I can do it all, and I can do it well, but I am not a star. I think it is my lack of ability to commit, or possibly I can say it is my ability to easily pick up new things. And my love of variety and all things interesting.
So, that leads me to the camera purchase. It is a big decision to spend $500 on a camera, quite a commitment, but it is my favorite hobby, and taking pictures of the family is a good thing. I think I am going to go for it.

ah you are like me! for me, I just get bored with something and have to do something else, then come back to it later. there is nothing wrong with it and Im sure you are a star at all of it!
I vote go for the camera - its something you will be thrilled to have and its not just for one hobby - you will use it for so many things. As a long time photog - you cant go wrong with a good camera.
have fun!
