Today I know.

To be honest some days I wonder why I do this.  Yes, I do mean to say that vaguely because I do wonder on more than one front.  This questioning feeling hits me both in my personal and professional life.  I wonder why do I put forth the effort? Why do I keep writing my blogs? Why do I keep trying to forge on in my photography?  Why do I keep hitting my head against the wall?

Some days I come up wanting to those answers.  I wish I could say that wasn't true but I do. I mean it would be a lot easier to just pursue a 9-5 job with benefits.  It would be a lot easier to go back to knitting as a hobby.

Today I know why.  For the photography, it is because I love to take pictures, but not just pictures of anything but of people and for the people of whom I have taken pictures.  Though it is hard and I loose steam long the way I am happy to breath deep and move on when I can remember what the effort is for.  For blogging besides a deep needed desire to write and connect with others it is because of you.  Yes, again meant that vaguely to whomever is reading this.  It is because of you and those who comment.  Like everyone else in the world I don't have this (life) figured out and I am on a journey of mistakes and it is great to know that I am not alone, to know that my experiences and thoughts can encourage others.

(no particular reason there are knives... just getting inspiration from my everyday.)

I ask this of you now:   If I am ever mean or rude or derogatory about another person on my blog or otherwise call me on it.  I desire to be better than I am but fail in so many ways.

So thank you.

Thank you for being here on this journey with me, for encouraging me and for doing life (at least part of your digital life) with me.


  1. Reading your blog, no matter how melancholy the post could be, I have to smile at your sincerity. So, thank you for putting your words out there for us to take in. You are truly one of the people I draw hope from in the world of photography.

    1. Thank you Kris! You are very sweet.
