I had the pleasure of meeting Ken Kornacki and Moxie of Moxie Loves MKE. I was a nervous wreck, coaching myself that they were normal people, too. I usually start smiling way too much and rambling a lot in these types of situations. A similar thing happened when I met Junot Diaz at a book signing. Any author, actually. At the Gallery Night, though, Ken brought up something very interesting about shooting something in a moment that has significance to you. You may be visiting a place in which millions have been before you, but capturing one particular moment makes it yours. Period. It has changed the way I look at photography.

I know I previously promised not to disappear again, but I failed. It's been over a month since that promise, and I have stayed uninspired and unmotivated. I don't really know what finally pushed me. I charged my battery, snapped a few things throughout the day, and I feel as though I have given my creative muscles some much needed stretching. I'm trying, truly trying. I'll be scrambling to catch up with my 365. Fingers crossed that I can actually do this.

You've probably noticed I've been absent. I haven't abandoned my 365 completely, but I must admit that I've been a little depressed. I know I'm depressed when I can't even bring myself to pick up my camera or finish an Alice Munro book. I don't really count my phone as a whole lot, although I do love the mobile photodiary I keep. I love the weight and feel of my cameras in my hands and for a brief period, I didn't really pick her up a whole lot. I posted nothing last month, although I do have some things. My photo files are in such disarray that I couldn't bring myself to add to the chaos. So, I'm breaking my silence, breaking through the depths of depression with this post. I've been a little bit more physically active and taking in a lot of sunlight to combat these feelings. I'm hoping that with this posting, and some time to organize my files tomorrow, I'll feel better enough to create more images. Keep following along. Don't give up on me. And I'll try my hardest not to let you down.
