Commentary by management consultant Michael Wade on Leadership, Ethics, Management, and Life
When I was in my first years of recovery from cancer treatment, I had bought a digital SLR and started taking photographs. I began with simple roadside flowers, still lifes, small objects that we might take for granted.I began to develop a greater sense of detail - noticing shapes, color, shadows, symmetry with surroundings. Even after I put the camera down, I found myself more aware of what I was looking at, framing it, detailing it.The camera was definitely part of my recovery, part of the process of reintegrating myself with my surroundings.It's a very powerful tool - I recommend it to many of the cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers I come across. It has an incredibly calming effect especially when you're in such a vulnerable time.Life is in the details - the photograph puts it in focus... - J.
