Summer Daze…

I wanted to take a few minutes and catch everyone up on this summer and my new website, Art Strong Photography. So much is going on and the summer is zooming by so fast, partly because the boys didn’t get out of school until the last week in June and partly because we have so many activities, games and camps to attend. It feels like we are on the move constantly, trapped in a vortex of hurtling objects, and endless tasks. Laughing, talking, swimming, visiting, driving, etc. you get the idea…motion, mobility, transportation, the usual summer activities that provide the backdrop for our lives.

I am still working on the Art Strong Website, though I have come to the conclusion, I need to slow down a bit and focus. I thought that I could pull everything together and still continue to do all the other things that I normally do,( see list above). Who was I kidding? I’ve decided to slow down, to warp speed, and build the website that I can be proud of and that reflects my own creative spirit.

To that end, I am rebuilding and re-dedicating myself to Art Strong Photography and to the joy that I first embraced when I started Artists Promenade. I have been so happy to write and share my photos with all of my online friends and I will continue doing that even as I work on Art Strong and Artists Promenade too.

I realized, again, that I needed to take the time to refill my tank and enjoy the moments as they are whizzing by. It is the only way I will have the energy, courage and fortitude to embrace my dreams and still make time for the life I am building and dreaming about today.

Writing to all of you is the first step and I appreciate your patience and kindness while I take a breather, and take some time to smell the roses and take some pictures. A week, maybe two and I think I will be bursting with enthusiasm and artistic zeal!

As soon as the website is up and running and all the cylinders and gears are churning the way I envision, I will happily announce it here first. As usual everyone here has been an amazing support and a constant voice of encouragement for me and I thank you for that, truly.

Now as my sons stare at me on a perfectly wonderful summer day, we are off to the beach for some sun and fun. Talk to you all soon.
