Hello there, friend,

My favorite thing about fall is that golden hour is right before dinner, which means everyone is still reasonably agreeable to go outside and play while I snap away in that delicious golden light. It's a win-win, and I've been making the most of it.

But the funny thing is that last week I took a purposeful step back. I decided I wasn't going to shoot my camera, wasn't going to post anything online. I just needed a break. And then, the other morning when I took my camera out on that gloriously sunny morning, something happened. I came inside and wrote myself a note: Do the work that feeds your soul! Which of course doesn't necessarily apply to the work for which I'm paid, but to creating in general. Since then, I have been chasing that golden hour light.

This is all very confusing, except to say that there's an ebb and flow. Sometimes it's a drought; other times, a flood. I wish it were all flood all the time, but where would that leave me? Unappreciative, I'd guess. Not where I am at this moment: grateful.
