I tried to do a nice thing and surprise my wife by signing her up to follow the blog and postings of a world famous photographer, but she got angry and would not give me her password.
She likes to take pictures but doesn’t want to try to learn how to improve her photography. She won’t read books I bought for her and won’t look at pictures I try to show her to improve technique.
The old adage that you can lead a horse to water, but can’t make it drink certainly was driven home to me today. I am suitably chastised. It does not pay to do favors, regardless of how well-intentioned they may be.
I seem to keep forgetting that lesson year after year after year.
