I Wasn't Kidding
Photo from a summer dinner with friends last year. Shot with my Pentax K1000 and Fuji Superia 400 film. The red stripe is from opening the camera back before the film was completely unwound. I put off developing that film for over a year because I was sure it was ruined, but this was the only shot affected and it's my favorite from the roll.
When I said in this post that it was time to make some big changes in my life, I wasn't kidding. I didn't realize at the time that it would result in completely neglecting this blog for months, but when I looked inward it was clear I needed some time away, some time to not worry about what my life looked life from the outside. And I have to say that my retreat and reflect plan has resulted in some big wonderful changes in my life that I'll be sharing soon. But I'll warn you, they might not look that big or wonderful from the outside--I still live in the same tiny apartment in the same small town, I'm still single and childless--but they are big and wonderful to me, and I'm quite proud of what I've accomplished over these months.
So I'm going to make an attempt now to start again in this space for real. I'm not going to lie though. Work is crazy and I barely have time to think of much else, so the posts will not be daily. Hopefully weekly, or maybe I'll post a couple of times each weekend. We'll see.
I'll certainly understand if some of you have given up on checking for updates, but I hope I still have some readers left. Give a shout if you're still listening :).
