The Journey Begins


Enjoy the journey and try to get better every day. And don’t lose the passion and the love for what you do.
Nadia Comaneci

You’re reading the first of what may be many entries. What you’re reading right now is the beginning of a journey. My exodus. Although I may not be a published author or very eloquent at putting my thoughts down and expressing myself through words, writing has always been good for me. It’s allowed me to process emotion. My daughter is great at drawing, while I on the other hand, am still stuck on stick figures.

So why a blog?

Honestly, I need something to get me through the cold winter months while photography season is slow. Writing is therapeutic and I hope it is able to reach someone else.

What can you expect while you read our blog? To be quite honest with you, I don’t really know at this moment. I know, that isn’t exactly a clinching statement that makes you want to come back and read more. What I can tell you…what I can promise you, is that anything I write and that you read will be real. No hidden emotion, no hidden agenda, no ulterior motive behind the words; just real emotion from myself to you. You can expect to read about some of the veterans I come in contact with through the “Faces of Veterans” photography project. You can expect to read random thoughts to different things happening in my life and around the world. While this isn’t a blog focused on politics, it is a blog of emotions and feelings about all the madness and darkness in our world today. It’s my answers to those things; an attempt to shine a light into the dark shadows that try and envelope you and I on a daily basis. Again, I can’t guarantee much, but I can guarantee my truthfulness and the passion I put into photos, will be put into writing.

Thank you for embarking on this journey with me. I hope that my words will reach someone who is searching for answers. I hope that even just one of my entries will reach one person. Please feel free to place your comments below and I will do my best to answer any questions.
