1. Don’t expect anything. When I live in this mode, I’m happy when good stuff happens. Operating with a deficit mentality doesn’t work for me.
  2. Have my camera with me at all times. Like good things in life, cool picture opportunities just come up, unplanned and unposed.
  3. Never turn down a good invitation. I’m living without a partner with a teen who, on the day-to-day level, wants me to leave her alone. I need all the company I can get. Other than Charlie Manson inviting me to his family reunion, I’m game.
