because I barely picked up my camera for the past 6 months unless for commissioned work and short family trips. and it doesn't really matter.
that I didn't get what I wanted in the first place. because it opened more doors than I could possibly have imagined, propelling me in the direction of new dreams.
that loading my Polaroid sx-70 with film makes my heart leap again.
because I walked (and had lunch) with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous. and have never had more convinction about what I am doing.
because even though his changing behavior has been most disconcerting and our relationship strained the past couple of months (and I am now wrapping my head around the fact that I have a pre-teen), my son taught me how to play chess last night. and if this isn't the most awesome thing in the world, I don't know what is.
