Marvelous Part Two

I've been here before. But, in the interest of letting go and making a fresh start, I'm beginning again.

I've been studying diligently to become the photographer I've always dreamed of being. I want to create the most beautiful art. But I've become so focused on this that I hadn't realized that I haven't been in more than five (undeleted) photos over the past five years.

I've been studying diligently to become the photographer I've always dreamed of being. I want to create the most beautiful art. But I've become so focused on this that I hadn't realized that I haven't been in more than five (undeleted) photos over the past five years. During a workshop, the instructors spoke about the importance of "existing in photos" for your children and their children. For the first time, I felt a compelling desire to be a subject in my own work. This will take work on my skills, but also on myself.

My 46-year-old body needs some love and a rebirth into something fit and useful for the things I've been longing to do. I want to hike and photograph freely and run 5 Ks and wear the t-shirts.

So, join me, if you will, as I leave behind all of the times I've started and stopped. I really feel like there's nothing else in my way.

God, help me!

Your comment on my blog made me LOL! I don't like to sweat either but I seem to be able to sweat at the drop of a hat! It can be a curse!
