Life Insights – Connecting as Friends – Austin TX

Dear friends and followers of my blog,

I believe each of us can make such a difference in this world simply by taking the time to get to know more people around us, and sharing in this thing we call “life.”   Beyond social media, beyond Twitter and text messages, actually MEETING and talking to others is so important.

Our Next Activity:

We will be starting a book discussion/study of this book by Gretchen Rubin in January! All are invited.  Totally free to attend.  Just RSVP so we know you’re coming.  If you can’t attend all sessions, come when you can!

Book Discussion: “Better Than Before: What I Learned About Making and Breaking Habits” by Gretchen Rubin

When: Monday Nights 7pm-9pm   January 14, 21, 28  Feb 4,11
Where: Kevin Gourley Photography Studio, 11740 Jollyville Rd. Suite 400, Austin, TX  78759


The author of the blockbuster New York Times bestsellers, The Happiness Project and Happier at Home, tackles the critical question: How do we change? Gretchen Rubin’s answer: through habits. Habits are the invisible architecture of everyday life. It takes work to make a habit, but once that habit is set, we can harness the energy of habits to build happier, stronger, more productive lives.

What is this LifeInsights group all about?

I have opened up my photography studio as a place to connect with each other beyond “just photography” and get to know each other more and share in this experience we call “life.”

Community leaders (such as Austin’s Mayor Steve Adler) have been saying we should do more to get to know our neighbors, to connect with one another in the community, and engage in dialogue and friendship.  So I decided to do my part, and with the help of  friends, we started a book discussion group at my studio in NW Austin.  After our first book discussion, we enjoyed it so much we started talking about doing another book study, as well as going out to dinner as a group to celebrate completion of our first book study.

We have since done more book studies and discussions and plan to continue, mostly on Monday evenings (but not every Monday Evening)!  You can check our current schedule on this web page!

If you think you’d like to join us, just send me an email (and I can add you to a new google group we set up to keep in touch with each other. .

Our little group is called “LifeInsights” since that is what we are doing, exploring and sharing about meaningful life insights.

By the way, what does this have to do with photography?  I mean, I am doing this at my photography studio, so what’s the connection? Well, my studio just seemed like a good place as any to do this since it has a classroom space. But yes there is a connection to photography. The images we create are influenced tremendously by how we see the world around us. In fact how we see the world around us influences our photography way more than the particular make and model of camera we own.  So why not spend some time exploring meaningful insights about life?  It might just affect your photography, and you will likely make some new friends along the way. And if you are not a photographer, you are definitely welcome to join us also!

Interested?  Let’s talk.  🙂
