Fear and peace of mind

Leave a comment

When I first started doing this blog I was really afraid of even starting to share my images and thoughts. I know I’m an amateur photographer at best and my writing sometimes isn’t done with proper grammar or punctuation. Half the time it’s just me rambling on about this or that normal life event or some strange inspiration I got from my photos.

I didn’t have a good direction or organization when I started this. And it shows even after a couple of years at it. But I feel like I’ve accomplished what I started out to do. I wanted to do my own photography and express my own views and observations. I wanted to get in the habit of doing it regularly and improving over time while always challenging myself to do more.


Well as most things I do its been a slow progression but this one has left me feeling very good.

I haven’t started much in the terms of art and sculpture yet. But I feel a sudden sense of urgency to do lots more of this and my artwork. No specific reason but I usually listen to myself so maybe this will get me inspired for a lot more quality work.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
