Life is pretty good right now. Getting ready to cook dinner then go for a quick hike for sunset. Recently we moved from Manchester to the Monadnock Region. I have been much happier since we moved out here. I have never really been happy in the city. It also enables us to spend much more time outside. People are kinder out here, and overall it is a better quality life.
The weekend went by quick as usual. Today was the first day I have taken off from taking pictures since Friday. I figured I should take some time to edit some stuff. I am about halfway through editing photos now, just have to figure out what to do with them. Like I have mentioned before, it is going to take a backseat to my writing. It is more of a hobby right now as I hone my skills. But who knows, stranger things have happened. Maybe that will take off first. I’m really open to anything.
I go back in forth before writing and photography. Art helps me balance life out. Both help me feed my creative side, yet they do it in different ways. It is inevitable that I need time off. I like to be busy, I like projects, yet I also recognize that I do need to momentarily step away. If I don’t get burnt out and my performance suffers.
I had been working on a piece of fiction that hopefully will be published in the Fall. It was fun working on it, but after two weeks of intense editing I needed a break. So I have been taking photos lately. I am really excited because I have taken some awesome night shots. They are nothing compared to some folks night shots, but they are a start. It was the first time I had even taken night photos, so I was happy I even got the stars. You have to start somewhere right?
So I hope that all of you are doing as well as I am. I hope that you are finding time to do the things that you love. Have a great week and follow your dreams!
