(aka playing with prefixes)
Dear reader(s), I won’t lie…2016 was a rough year for me (and many others). It was a year of lost friends and lost hopes, of rejection and disillusionment. It was a year of drought and 14 hour field days and many, many 70 hour work weeks. I know I didn’t post as much as I have in the past, or as thoughtfully, and I won’t apologize for that (because blogs just need to be free to change, man!), but I do appreciate you sticking around and reading and commenting.
I feel like I’ve developed a few good friends on this blog, and I feel safer sharing thoughts and photos here than anywhere else. I’m grateful to the thoughtful and kind words of my commenters, who seem to be just generally positive people! I need some of that in my life.
Here’s what I will promise you…2017 won’t necessarily be better, but it Will. Be. Different. I’ve got downsizing to do and a big move in the near future, plus a lot of traveling. A new job, and rebuilding my life from the ground up. I’ll be venturing out into the world with nothing more than a suitcase and an external hard drive with 10 years of hard-earned data.
So stick around and I promise to show you things I’ve never seen before and take you on some great adventures!
Here’s to new and different…
Lots of love,
SOIMF (Standing Out In My Field)
