Dear WP Peeps-
After almost three years of taking photographs everyday as well as Take 12! Challenges, I have decided–reluctantly I might add–that it is time to take a break.
This was a really difficult decision to make. I have gotten so used to making time everyday to take photographs that it is hard to imagine trying a different routine. But a couple of weeks ago, it was gently pointed out that perhaps a break was sorely needed-I had gotten to the point where I was not using photography as my meditative practice but as one that increasingly was fixated on getting the one image that would work for the blog. And I think it started to show in some of my photographs over the last month–maybe longer. I just was not seeing, if that makes sense. So then the frustration would start and being the obsessive-compulsive that I am, it would just turn into a hash of things.
So what does this mean for those of you who have read this far?
It means that for the month of September I am taking a break from this blog. I have not decided yet about my other blog Little Dogs Laughed-am still thinking about that one. I will do my Take 12! challenge as I do enjoy that exercise and I find I cannot do completely away with routine. I may still go and take photographs everyday, but I may also turn my energies to some other photographic processes that I have been wanting to experiment with–I just do not know. And for now, that is okay-I do not need to.
So thank you all for bearing with me, for sticking around this long and hopefully, I will see many of you again in October. In the meantime, I will be continuing to visit your blogs, catch up on comments on mine and think of new ways to express myself with the camera.
With many thanks and most grateful appreciation for all of your support-
