I heard an interviewer ask Annie Liebovitz, world-class photographer, what the most important thing a beginning photographer could do. Her answer: "Learn to see." Liebovitz has trained herself to see everything as if looking through the lens of her camera.
This week was Barbie's 50th birthday. My friend, who also turned 50, received a Barbie doll as a birthday gift. Barbie looked the same as always--leggy and buxom, blonde and tan. And she still looks great in a bikini. Barbie hasn't changed, but the rest of us have. I daresay we've been through much more than Barbie, though. I never heard tell of her getting pregnant or giving birth.
