Drifting away and towards.

How do you start?

It is a strange thing, moving towards a path later in life. It creates an excitement that tingles inside the skull. It creates a fear that sits in the bottom of your bowels. It creates an entirely new world that has far surpassed you in the new digital age.

Having spent the last 16 years behind a camera and behind the scenes, it is difficult to crawl out and be seen again. They have been years spent travelling, meeting celebrities, and learning about people. I have been a fly on the wall of glitz and glamour, parties and private charities, royalty and legends. Photography is still a passion of mine, but the world is not what it once was, and neither am I.

I still do these things and still enjoy these things, but my soul is searching for more…a little something extra outside of my 24/7 career that I have been building since I was 16 years old. Side passions are where real passion lies, as your first passions generally end up becoming your job. So, here I come side passion número dos!

The last time I wrote any kind of blog was LiveJournal somewhere around 2000, then it was on towards MySpace popularity and eventually we were allowed to join Facebook outside of High school groups in 2005. It was already difficult then to keep up with the changing internet. By now, the social media age zips past me at a speed greater than the world warped around David Bowman after he left the Discovery One.

But, I take a deep breath and make a list of things to learn. Join me and let’s learn together.

“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
