It occurred to me a few days ago that I've been blogging for seven years. My first blog post was published on April 17, 2006 on Thru My Lens Lightly (much to my amazement, I'm still getting an average of 30 hits a day on that blog! I think it's mostly from my photographs that float around out there forever, on sites like Google Images).
My focus at that time was my new Nikon SLR camera (yes...before digital!) and I was just dipping my toes into Photoshop and image manipulation. It's amazing to see just how far technology has come in such a short time. All cameras are digital now and my iphone camera has more memory than my first DSLR!
I think it's time to update my profile pic...my hair gets whiter lighter every year!
Although my passion for photography has waned somewhat and blogging itself has also changed...it seems to be used much more as a business tool now...I'm not quite ready to give it up yet. In the past 3 or 4 months, I've been posting more on Facebook and damnit...it's just so easy that the slacker part of me likes that. I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook. There's not much depth to it but it does keep people connected and I love that. (I'm here if you'd like to connect via FB).
Shedio update: We now have one window and a door installed in the "shedio/studio" and one more window ordered...progress is being made. I've begun the spring weeding/clean out in the garden (I now ache all over) and the cushions for the patio furniture are coming out of storage tomorrow...after a slow start, it's begining to feel like spring! Leaving home for three months in the winter is an amazing and beautiful thing but the resulting "catch up" leaves me feeling just a little breathless.
Creatively, I'm still working with Veronica Torres/Eloheim Channel, designing posters and I'm also working with my daughter Kirsten, designing two ebook covers for her business coaching website...Re:freshed Businesses.
The context here is to be concious of leaving everything...every conversation, every business interaction (even every Facebook comment)...more concious than when we came to it.
I hope your world is filled with amazement and wonder at the beauty of life dear friends. It's always, always there when we look for it. Sending hugs and blowing kisses,
