11 years on dA as of today

Sat Mar 16, 2019, 8:49 PM
This evening I got an email from dA congratulating me on being a member for eleven years now. Though the profile page still lists it as ten years I suppose it will change at midnight. It kind of gets a bit confusing until I remember dA's day ends at 5pm my local time but maybe the profile widget is set for local time as well and will change at midnight.

Doesn't seem like eleven years but then again it sometimes feels longer if that makes any sense. :confused:

The past two years have been wonderful and the friends I have made along the way even more so. I still feel the excitement and amazement when I see that someone is now watching me. There must be millions upon millions of other artists on this site and somehow you found your way to my little corner of it and liked what I've done and hopefully continue to do, with hopeful improvement, in the future. I have about 200 hundred of you since November that I have yet to come visit and thank you for watching me. Please bare with me as life has intruded more this winter than ever before. 

Work has been a small mad house of electrical code changes, solar panels running out of stock and sales being way beyond expectations. Winter months were normally a time to get caught up but so far there hasn't been the usual lull in activity. On one hand good for business on the other hand overtime needing to be worked to keep up with it all.

Something else that has changed for me is that as some of you might know last Sept I started writing a book. I have been working at it long enough that I don't laugh at myself whenever I mention it. I thought that I could somehow balance my photography and writing somehow but this turns out to be harder to do than I imagined. I have never written much before so this book is an on going new experience for me. I am happy to say that a little bit ago MSWord has stopped suggesting I should write in my native language as American English most certainly isn't it. :facepalm:

Because of the writing my photography has taken a secondary backseat. But some of it stems from a lack of inspiration here of late and being disheartened by setups failing to achieve what I hoped they would. On the otherhand they have encouraged me and my attempts to bend photons on a shoestring budget and hint at fantastic results if I can just figure out what I'm doing wrong. The other reason is that by the time I get home my brain is numb. Most of my life has been spent working out doors and being physically tired while the brain is still good to go. Working at a computer desk all day long is something new to me and weird how brain tired it makes you. 


Thank you everyone who has stayed with me all these years and thank you to all those who have just started. I hope that I can remain doing whatever it is that keeps you with me. :tighthug:

and so it goes... :iconbowplz:
