Impossible to summerize the past year of my life while giving each event the attention it deserves.
I was scared to make this post after the 3rd of December last year… the worst day of my life- the day I lost my best friend. I knew what the subject would be and I didn’t want to write about it- I didn’t want to do anything that forced me to acknowledge the truth of the matter. I decided to wait until I’d finished his tribute video before posting about it, but by the time it was ready, another tragedy had struck in my life and I lost another person I loved very much. That double blow within a 6 month period was one of the hardest feelings I’ve had to over come and I’m still very much processing through it. After more time continued to pass, I began to feel overwhelmed by the idea of summarizing the events that had happened in my life after so long…. so I just…. didn’t.
But recently, Stephen’s condescending voice has come into my head and has scolded me for my irresponsibility. To tell the truth, Stephen was the only one that held me accountable for updating my travel blog regularly- and apparently I’m still not off the hook. I saw him laughing at me, shaking his head and telling me that it’s unbelievable that I’m going to let an entire YEAR go by without a word. It was at that moment that I knew- I needed to prove his punk ass wrong at least one more time!
So here we are, day 364, and I’m POSTING!
Now it wouldn’t really count if it wasn’t forward motion towards more regularly updated posts, so I’ve considered the options and have decided to clean up shop and start fresh. I’m moving my blog, and refocusing it more on media sharing and less of story telling. In this past year I have upgraded my ‘moment-capturing devices’ and having been spending a lot of time behind my Canon 500D DigitalSLR camera. Having such a wonderful toy with such an abundance of features has opened my eyes to the world of photography in a way I’d never enjoyed before- and having finally gotten a desktop computer with decent stats, I’ve been loving the rich HD video my camera produces as well….
