My Photography and Travel Blog

New Beginnings

Wow, it has been a LONG time since I have posted! So, a brief update for all my friends and followers, I have FINALLY completed my military service and I officially retired in July of 2012. I went right in to being a full time college student and completed my BFA in Photographic Imaging at the Art Institute of Charleston, SC. After completing my degree I returned home to bask in the glow of ease of retirement. After a lifetime of high adrenalin lifestyle and travel, simply setting at home, sipping coffee, learning to cook (a more refined meal , not just learning how to operate a digital microwave, lol!), daily yard work, listening to music, and of course, taking photographs; I have been accepted into the Masters Degree program for Creative Writing (fiction). So once again, at 53, it’s “back to school” to chase down another childhood dream of becoming a writer. So this post is three fold, I am posting to let you guys know what I am up to and that I am still kicking! And, to send a shout out to anyone and everyone who can help me in research and ideas for creative writing. I have many character to create, plots to devise, environments to create, and ladies…while I feel I can write in the male point of view, I would deeply appreciate each and every one of you who can assist me in the female perspective. And finally, to any of my author friends out there (fiction, non fiction, poets, etc…) Please send me a shout if I may lean on you for support, assistance, tips, tricks, collaboration, etc.

I plan to still post images here but please be aware that I hope to use this blog for creative free-writing, daily writing practice, and also as a medium to test out ideas, concepts, character ideas, etc. You have all been amazingly supportive of my photography (over 2 million hits on my website!) So please continue your support, encouragement, and above all else…Happy Holidays! Stay Safe! And let someone know how much they mean to you!
