So despite what might be popular belief around here, I do live in the same world as everyone else (I promise it's not a geometric alternate universe! ;P), and I do like to have fun. My Lake photos may have seemed a bit broody, but it really was an enjoyable day with family and friends.
Being out there reminded me of how important it really is, not only to have fun, but to connect with those you love and share enjoyable, memorable times with them. One of my contacts, Jt, recently experienced a tragic loss that I couldn't even imagine. And out of the many thoughts it's stirred in me, one of the deepest has been the realization of how short our time is with those we love, and how we must cherish every little bit of it we are given.
So I encourage you, spend time with those you love. Cherish them. Stay close to them. And have fun with them until the end.
And if you find the time, I also think it would be cool if you would check out Jt's stream and maybe leave some encouraging words. I dedicate these to he and his family, who I pray are able to find some love and fun together in this hard time. He is an incredible photographer, and I know you will enjoy his stuff.
Have fun :)
