First, I apologize for pretty much disappearing in the second semester of 2014. In the month of May I took a training course to prepare for a new position, and in August I got the job that I -thought- I really wanted, and from then I’ve been sucked into an hellish black hole. I won’t bore you with the details but my very absence and the fact I took very few pictures, and processed and shared even less, say it all. I used to be a chatty, impetuous, shutterhappy, crazy photography bug, I now have only one camera left, an older Nikon DSLR with one broken fifty millimeters lens, and I sort of make do with that. Not that I have the energy to shoot much, anyway.
It’s just that I don’t see the light of the day, that my entire energy, and even the energy I do not have, are sucked straight from my bones by horrid hours and an increasingly demanding job. I’ve come to dread even the week-ends, because they are supposed to be about hobbies and fun, and I have zero hunger or desire left for those, either…
I’m about half way through my one year contract. Right now I’m even on sick leave as my doctor herself decided my condition was worrisome and I needed a few days break. If I had one thing to wish all my readers, and friends all over the world, for the year to come, it would be to NOT let yourself be swallowed whole by the brutality of everyday life, try to wake up some of your dreams up and bring them forth. I really count on doing that myself in the second part of 2015. You might not see much of me in the first trimester again, but I promise to be back in the spring, hopefully with good news, news of change. And it that happens, it’ll be a big change, with a downpour of photos to go with it !
Thanks to all the kind people who reached out to find out if I was still alive, still well, still shooting. You guys who’ve been following this blog for a while are a true support and a true inspiration. I wish you all the best for the year to come, and I hope to be back full force asap !! So, more than ever, stay tuned !!
