This is my all-time most viewed image on Flickr with more than 17,000 views. I share this today in the interest of keeping my blog alive while I am in a period of transition. My family and I are in the process of preparing for life without a net on the open road. I want to share the preparation with my followers, but that really isn’t what this blog is about. I’ve tried to stay within my niche, sharing photographs accompanied by haiku. While it hasn’t translated into making me any money or becoming internet famous, it has provided me with an outlet for my creative endeavors.
My life is changing, and ultimately, this blog is about photography and life. That’s what the tagline reads anyway. So as I get used to the very exciting and extremely scary idea of living on the road for as long as we can stand it, I hope you will continue to follow this blog as I share it all with you.
I’ve never been accused of being the most organized person. I do everything in a “roll the dice, and see how it all shakes out” kind of way and at 41 that’s worked for me so far. We wouldn’t be able to pull this thing off if we did it like that this time. So I’m lucky that I chose an extremely organized and beautiful life partner to counteract my loosey-goosey nature.
I’ll always write haiku. I’ll always share interesting images of the people and places we encounter along the way. I’m crossing my fingers that the stories will come and that someday if I’m lucky I could be a successful freelance photographer. If I fail, I will pick myself up and start over again, it won’t be the end of the world. At least I’ll know in my heart that I tried.
