Each year brings with it new ideas, new friends, and new opportunities. These 38 images represent my year in photography. Many images are not in this album as they are client work. But you get the idea.
The biggest change in my world is moving to Merlin, Oregon, just last week. I will miss the Southwest. But I will travel there. It is in my blood and my heart.
2018 is upon us next week. For most of us, it is a new starting line. A clean slate in our minds. What will it bring? That is the adventure of life. We plan a pivotal role in that process.
I remain an optimistic and happy person in the face of our tumultuous world. I choose the path of the Peaceful Warrior. I choose Love, Kindness, and Creativity.
“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” J.R.R. Tolkien
Don’t let life “happen” to you. Choose your path. No choice is still a choice. Be kind to yourself. Be loving and kind to those around you. You don’t know how long you or they will be here on this earth. Change happens within. You are a human “Being” first. Not a human “doing.”
Be the change you want to see in the world, your life and your relationships.
All the best in 2018
