No. 500

Nearly three years ago I started something new. I wrote my first blog post. It started as an outlet for creativity that I wasn’t able to fully express at work. It morphed into a medium that compelled me  to shoot more photographs. It has grown into an every other day journey of self-discovery and storytelling.

There have been times when I’ve written because there was something that needed to be shared. There have been many more times when I’ve written because sharing these words and images has become a ritual that I’ve grown to thoroughly enjoy.

Sometimes I think that only my wife and mother read what I have to say, but I’m frequently inspired by the comments I’ll receive from folks I had no idea were readers. A friend recently asked me if I was planning to keep on publishing Picture This Life, to which I responded, “Of course, it’s not called – Picture This Three Years.”

I suppose that as long as my wife and mom keep reading, I’ll keep writing.
