Yes, I'm here. I know, I've been gone a long time. I regret my absence.
It's the Stuff. And the Things. They get up in my grille, and I forget to water my roots. I wonder if there is a cure for this affliction. Perhaps the limiting of distractions would help. My mind is a pond, and the rocks they keep plunging in.
Ahhh. Sorry. I digress, and don't mean to bore you with my crow thoughts. What I really wanted to say was that I do have news. Interesting news. Whether good or not-so-good remains to be seen.
See? I did it again! Sorry.
The story is I am finally submitting some of my photography works to an exhibition, here in Kansas City, Missouri, at a local art gallery. Through luck, timing and the good graces of a new friend I was nudged into doing it. I recently finished the final edit of my submission set of eight pieces, all of which will be reviewed by the curator for approval and thus inclusion into the show.
Eight pieces, out of an original set of about 66 photos. The editing process was tiring and more stressful than I imagined something like it would be. It was a first for me, and I hope to have many more opportunities.
So...I have submitted my pieces. Now, I wait to hear if any get approved for the exhibition. Wish me luck, if you please. I'll let you know as soon as I hear the final word. In the meantime, I include a lagniappe for you, an image that did not make my final cut, but pleased me all the same. It has a working title, but I'm open to suggestions. Enjoy!
