So i had this blog lined up in my mind and then it all went down the sink as i started writing this Christmas letter. This letter was somewhat a tradition a school board friend of mine started way back, time and family as well my own, it stopped.
The reason why I can’t write this Christmas letter for this year is, it would simply be too sad or too short. Not much have happened, granted I’ve been to movie gala opening, I’ve met some people at photo meet ups, being with my friends, got a nephew almost a year ago, I’ve taken quite a lot of photos as well being busy editing them too. I’ve written for Deaf Insight close to a year too and every time it makes me aware of my situation life vs. choices.
Still out of work, I’ve been using the waiting time on photos and such. Don’t get me wrong, between it all I am grateful for being able to use my time on my photography, still a job is also part of your identity, part of who you are. And in all this waiting I can’t help but understand when the elder people have to retire and start on an another chapter of their life so late.
Again I am grateful I can stay in my apartment, still pay my bills and just have to put my other part of my life aside. So before I get myself started on what I don’t have and such, I will just finish this blog, being grateful for what Deaf insight have given me, new friendships, a deadline to make. I hope 2013 will be more cheerful to share from my corner of the world.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
The Quiet Photographer
