Hello. Long time…I think it’s almost been a full year since I posted here. Unusual for me, as I have been posting at least quarterly. But, I admit this year has not availed itself to my usual fun posts. It was a strange one – full of mistakes, wrong turns, bad decisions and emotional unrest. I don’t think I’m alone this year. Don’t get me wrong; I’m lucky to have a roof over my head, food on the table, friends and work, but my personal journey was tough. Add covid, a fractured foot and a knee injury to the mix and ‘What the hell 2022?!’ I’d love to blame the calendar, and at the end of every year we often assess whether it was a ‘good’ year or not. I’ll be happy to see its ass end. Ha ha. One of the things it did rob me of was the joy of this; posting my photos, making my annual calendar and sharing what I love with the world at large – my photography. I didn’t pick my camera up until October this year. I took a few snaps with my phone (the June sunset shot here) but generally left my camera on the counter to gather dust. And that’s okay. It’s dusted off now and there’s a renewed sense of life getting back to ‘normal’. The foot and knee are on the mend, the Christmas festivities about to start and a new year is about to start. The perfect opportunity to allow 2023 to start off on a good note. Happy Holidays all and here’s to a happy, healthy, better 2023.
