Life's Changes in Spring



Haven't written for awhile as life has brought me many changes, mostly good, a few sad, but that's what life does. Change. Which is good as it would get boring if it was always the same!



As some changes come around, such as the loss of a loved one, you grieve how you feel or believe is appropriate for you. That's what I've been doing. I followed the advice of a holistic blog writing I found and took time for myself, have said "no" or "not right now" to a few things, kept my schedule relatively clear especially on Saturdays, went to the mountains for a day, worked in my gardens and have enjoyed many walks with my dog Noah. Often, I think God sent Noah to help me through these rough days. But, I believe God works all things together for good. Loss can be good or bad depending on your focus. Yes, I miss the person, but they are not suffering and are in heaven. I focus on the good of no longer suffering and heaven.

Embarassing to say, after the loss, or before the loss, not sure exactly, I had updated my computers and added Lightroom 3 to my workflow. I took a Lightroom 3 class in January, but have forgotten much of what I learned since I didn't return for a bit. So, I've been on a learning curve that seemed to keep bending here lately.

I have missed writing, photographing and facebooking over the past few months. I am working to get back on track and write often, photograph often and maybe sell a few images off my site.
