Sk8 Projects

Photographing skateboarding is hard. I had no clue as to how hard when I first started. When you don't know the names of the tricks or how they are supposed to look it makes it even harder.  (Although, I have to wonder if it is even harder if you are a skateboarder. Would you be thinking "I can do that"? Or "I wish I could do that."? ) The action on the board means sometimes having to put yourself in spots that may be a little dangerous. I have had more than a few rogue boards come in my direction, some making impact. But as long as it isn't my face, I guess I won't complain! You never know what a skateboarder is going to do and sometimes they even change it up as they do it.

New Year (2022)

January 1st is like resetting your phone or computer. It is the way to freshen everything and make things better. I feel that more than ever these days. I have cried and mourned so much this year. There have been some pretty awful moments and let me tell you, I packed quite a few awful ones in right before the end of the year.

I made a promise to myself that I would not allow those moments to ruin the new year. Of course, on this day I would find out Betty White, the beloved icon, had passed away. Betty gave so much joy to so many people. Her loss will definitely echo throughout the years. 

A new start also means 365 days to get things right. A healing journey does not happen overnight and that is totally ok. The point is to start somewhere.

I sat in bed and set intentions of what I want in this new year. It will get there. Slowly, but surely. I have faith in me. The only person I am in control of is me and I know what I want and although the path is not perfectly clear, it will happen.

Life is too short not to have hope!
