Trespassers Will Be Prosecuted

I keep asking myself why I'm not posting more. Am I tired of blogging? Has it run its course? I'm also not taking all that many pictures. The season of random acts of violence has started in the 'hoods and the news tells of drive bys and one killing of a police officer. So I need to take pictures downtown in tourist zones, take a road trip or work on nature photos. So far nothing has sparked my fancy.
I know it will happen again soon. Truthfully, right now life is pretty occupied with family issues--taking kids to their various after school activities, my older boy graduates high school next week so last weekend was devoted to prom activities--I'm still in shock--making summer plans for the whole family and so on. I signed up for a modern dance class and have sent out 4 books on Bookmooch and released one "into the wild" on Bookcrossing as part of my attempt to clear out unwanted books from my house. So life is good just busy as ever.
I'm reaching my three year anniversary of posting on this blog so I'll have to do something on that day. Maybe some sort of retrospective. Hmmm.
Well the answer is I'm still a blogger. Just a little busy this season.

No excuses! The internet is smaller when you are not actively engaged. That said, of the blogs I follow, most have posted more infrequently of late.

Hows the print coming? Please let me know how much it will cost.

I've been feeling the same way lately. I've been doing it almost two years and I think I may be done.

The season of random acts of violence. That's gotten under my skin from 10,000 miles away. I'm fed up with gun violence in the States and fed up with the failure of anyone to stand up and say that it's because it is too easy to own a gun.

I love that photo!

Blogging has rhythms and I don't think you should feel bad if you're posting less for a while,

Enthusiasm and opportunities wax and wane.

That heron doesn't seem too concerned about impending prosecution.

Things cycle. Creativity waxes and wanes and when it comes back it seems stronger than ever. Just ride the tide and see what turns up.
