Oh the weight
in your face the calm steady
freight train blowing you along making your heart sink
and your chest leap if you look out the window
It has really been too long. I did not intend to take such a long break from this space. But, as I have found in the past couple months intent does not bring forth more time.
My beloved camera, my Sony RX100 that I saved for months to acquire broke-down with an internal defect within days of me finishing the “seeing differently challenge“. I have felt lost and off kilter ever since. Yes, I have my eye on a new camera and I am saving slowly. And, no I don’t have a smart phone to fall back on, so it will take time to find my way back to where I feel most comfortable. I miss the lack of self-expression and knowing I can create what I see.
There is more, of course, my dad is very ill and so I am spending my free time working through my own grief and feelings as well as my families. I don’t have easy access to post as often when I am visiting my parents and honestly, it is more important to be present with them.
But, there is still so many beautiful sights calling to me, shining in the late low afternoon light, whispering their stories. I have my old camera, it has a decent scratch on the lens and very few ways to compose the image I see. It is all I have at the moment, so it will have to do.
So, I don’t have a real sense of when I will be back here in full force, but I will continue to share when I am able and look forward to hearing from each of you, my readers, and seeing your beautiful contributions and thoughts as well.
