Reset, Relaunch, Go

Well, I THOUGHT I was getting back on the horse. It ended up being one of those wooden rocking horses that, you know, doesn't really go anywhere but just rocks in place. Oh, sure, its fun! But, the scenery really doesn't change and not too much gets accomplished. It would seem the adjustment period between full time work, family, and creative interests took a bit longer then I had anticipated. By the date of my last post it 's been more then two months. However, I can happily report that things seem to be calming down.

*looks around nervously*

I went and cursed myself now, didn't I?

With the two month break, I'm taking the opportunity to change a few things here. Because of the lack of free time, I've had to really pull away from my journalistic adventures in Second Life over on Frontier's Horizon. It saddens me a bit but I do try to hop on from time to time and I'll keep things going as I can.

One of the biggest things you will see here is more of a concentration on my photography. The studio website which this journal is now linked to has undergone a slight overhaul and things will progress there as I have time. The focus has changed to my photography, writing (fiction and game related), and my family. Secret Hideout, my webcomic, will be back but I'm not sure when and my artwork is down to a commission only level. This will also be reflected in the content for this blog. Basically, more pretty pictures for all of you!

In a way, after coming out a fairly rough eight months, I'm trying to find my dreams again, the things that make me glow from the inside. When I enter a transformational phase of my life, I have an urge to write about it. Writing it down helps me process the transitions, navigate the shoals. I've nominated this blog to serve n this regard, as a way for me to narrate and navigate further towards my star, my dreams. As said by J.M. Barrie, "Second star to the right and straight on till morning," or by Vincent Van Gogh, "For my part, I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream."
