I've had a lot of conversations recently dealing with what kind of measures it sometimes takes to live as a working artist juggling a "normal" life. Realistically I think we all have our profound challenges and in my experience there is no such thing as "normal". These conversations and some recent experiences led me to write a short essay on my life and the decisions I've had to make in an effort to be true to who I am. If anyone would like to give it a read here is the link. I'd also love to hear your experiences and perspectives as well. I shouldn't have to say this but some people need reminding so I'll ask from the start that everyone please be respectful of both what I'm sharing and any experiences that others share here just as you'd like people to be respectful of yours experiences and perspectives. Thanks! Happy Holidays to all and I wish you an abundance of happiness and beautiful photographs.
