Monday Mantra ~ #44

worthy

I stood barefoot in the cool sand of Canon Beach, Oregon in late August and witnessed the most incredible sunset, two nights in a row.  Not all days end so perfectly but all days are complete enough to be included in the portfolio of life.    Have a great week!

Time For A Re-Boot!

big-picture

Yes, the rumors of my demise are grossly exaggerated.  Two months have passed since my last post and I have a lot to share.  A three week, 4000 mile road trip to the Great Northwest consumed my August and September was spent getting back to work in Colorado.  Then without warning I’ve been temporarily sidelined by a condition known as Polymyalgia Rheumatica that brought on so much pain that I couldn’t even lift a camera.  I’m hopefully on the mend now.  A hefty daily dose of Prednisone relieving the symptoms while I await further evaluation and testing.

The thing is, in what seems like the blink of an eye I find myself re-examining my immediate ambitions and goals.    The Mantra above is really a get well card to myself complete with one of my favorite images from the Oregon coast (“Low Tide Long Walk” ~ Cannon Beach).   Little did I know when I shot it that it would become a symbolic reminder that every now and then you have to re-boot.

Monday Mantra ~ #43

rhythm section

Well I blew it!  For 42 consecutive weeks I managed to post a Mantra each Monday without fail.  This week, I find myself trying to cover my tracks late on a Tuesday evening.  This is the season of travel and photography for me and I have come to realize that this will not be the last time that I’ll miss the deadline.  The good news is I’m going to have some really good work to share in the coming weeks and months.

I’m about to embark on what is becoming an annual sojourn to the great Northwest.  Images of Waterfalls, rainforests, beaches and mountains will soon fill my memory cards.  September and October will likely lead me into the mountains of Colorado to capture fall foliage and when all the leaves have fallen in Colorado I’ll head to the desert in Utah to catch the season’s last gasp.

Have a great week!
