Have you ever reached a point where an interest or a talent once held dear, inspiring excitement and drive, became mundane and tedious? A decade ago, Bob Danley reached his own plateau when listing birds. Once his passion, this activity had become routine and stale. There was less discovery and harder work. For him it had spiritually become a poorer return on his investment of time, energy and resources. He felt the need to evolve just like the wildlife around him. Without noting a specific defining moment, Bob found that a digital camera was the catalyst for change in what he looked for and how he did it.
Welcome the coming fall and our speaker Bob Danley at our September meeting to hear Bob present his talk on how he began “Identifying Different Things….Differently”. We will be taken through a visual story of his experience and hear how he learned to view the natural world through a different lens.
Bob Danley holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education from Central Michigan University. He is fortunate to describe his working career as “colorful” and an eclectic mix of blue collar and professional positions. Through it all he developed a passion for wildlife. He encourages us all to go outside every day. Once begun, he says, the 10,000 hours needed to achieve expertise will arrive in no time at all. Your discoveries and learning will conserve our dwindling wildlife. That’s a real legacy!
Come join us to be inspired by Bob on Monday, September 10th at 7:00 in Room 123 of the Gallagher Business Building on the UM campus.
