I love the Holiday season, the smells, the food, family and friends. It is just a great time of year to remember what really matters in this world. It is the time of year when everyone seems to be a little nicer and it is a shame that it doesn't carry on throughout the year. So, here is to Thanksgiving, to family, friends, good health, prosperity and of course let's not forget the good food and spirits. It may not come on the same day in every country, but it comes none the less. So, whenever that day comes for you, my prayer is for you to spend it miserably stuffed with your favorite foods in warm surroundings in the company of family and friends. I do ask you all to not forget those less fortunate and to remember to give thanks for all that has been given to you, whether you believe in something greater than yourself, or not.
|Dear Friends! I want to thank you all for your amazing support of my work! I can't express to you how much it means to me. But, as most of you have come to understand for yourselves, there comes a point when you just can't keep up, and I am there now and have been for awhile and it has become exhausting. But, I will continue to make a point to respond as often as I can and I will answer all of your comments, I just ask that you be patient with me, for it may take a little time for me to get to you. So, again...thank you all for your support, input and kind words. I couldn't ask for a better group of people to be watched by.|
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
I picked up my first camera when I was 8 and started taking photograph's seriously at the age of 15 in High School. I cannot imagine life without my cameras, they go where I go and it drives my family crazy. If they have learned anything at all, they have learned that if they want us to get where we are going, make sure I am not driving. Because I stop every time I see something photo worthy, which is all the time.;o)
