Crocodiles are easy. They try to kill and eat you. People are harder. Sometimes they pretend to be your friend first.

Friday Five

1. It’s been a week since my 40th birthday. So many people have been eager to try to cheer me up or convince me it’s not that bad. Honestly, I don’t need cheering up. I’ve been looking forward to turning 40 for at least 2 years, maybe longer.

2. What’s funny is I actually feel younger than I have in a long time.

3. I’m already seeing results from my new, somewhat healthier lifestyle. I still hate working out, and I still crave junk food, but at least I can see some positive results from my efforts. So, there’s that.

4. It looks like I’m photographing a wedding a couple of hours away in a few weeks. A friend referred the couple to me when she found out they still needed a photographer. Just waiting on payment and their signed contract. I’m excited for the work but also that I came to mind when the need came up.

5. I also did an impromptu mini session for someone else on my birthday. I am thankful for all the encouragement I’ve been getting lately - signs that maybe this photography thing isn’t a compete waste of my time after all.

Time’s fun when you’re having flies.

Each of us has lived through some devastation, some loneliness, some weather superstorm or spiritual superstorm. When we look at each other we must say, I understand. I understand how you feel because I have been there myself. We must support each other because each of us is more alike than we are unalike.

I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts… It was a necessity for me - like food or water.
