Oh wow!! What happened!? One day it was Christmas, and the next thing I know, it's already March!! Holy Smokes!! I've been MIA and for that, I'm sorry. First, let me say, THANK YOU to all who have written and asked where in the world I was. That means so much to me. It's a great feeling to know there are friends all over the world wondering where you are. And the truth is..I've been right here. Life is life, holidays happen, people get colds or the flu, and winter turns slowly into Spring. But I'm still here. And for a minute, I'm going to just open up and tell you all about it. You know when you realize something, kind of an "ah-ha!" moment. And it's such an amazing thing to realize that it scares you a little at first. My moment is this: I love what I do. I love photography. I love those 'still' moments I'm honored to be a part of. I'm in a rut. That's maybe one of the worst places a photographer can be. A rut. Where's the inspiration? Where's the focus? Where's the challenge? I know it's there..I just have to find it again. I can only think to compare it to a writer not knowing what to put in the next chapter. You know it's your love..but you're stuck. So, I took a break. I put the camera down and left it there for almost 3 months. While it was sitting on a shelf, I was thinking. Lots and lots of thinking. What were my goals as a photographer? What was I going to do to obtain those goals? What was the reason of even having those goals? But you know what?? I think I figured it out. I have a new reason of why I do what I do. I have a new idea of what I want to have happen. To me..that's exciting. It's thrilling. It's challenging. And I love that.
Thank you for sticking around and being patient with my lack of posts. But I'm ready to come back. Not quickly..but I'm ready. Stay tuned for photos..
And again..Thank you..
Until next time..
