Thanks so much, Alex. Appreciate the thoughtful response and totally agree with your points. I think the precaution we all need to keep in mind is overconsumption at the expense of creation. Everyone needs to find a balance.
Sometimes, I really do find it helpful to just start writing, even if I don’t know what I’m trying to write about. The act of putting my butt in the chair and emptying the thoughts from my mind can be therapeutic and lead to something, even it’s just a phrase or sentence.
On another note, do you have any DSLR recommendations? I want to get more into photography and get a nice camera that’s not my iPhone.
