Loosing The Want Too

For the past week I have not felt like taking photos. Not sure why? Have not posted as I expected the desire to return. Perhaps it is time to move on to something else? Still getting out each morning. Check a few locations. Seeing nothing I have not seen before and want to try and capture for some reason, I return to the farm. Sit and read. If I had a date I knew I would start posting again each day I would say so. For the time being I do not.  Thank You for your time and stopping by…

    I have something that I always do, and decided to a month off in doing it. Not sure why either. Like you said, maybe it’s time for a change. Enjoy whatever you choose to do. And be ‘okay’ with whatever you don’t.

    I understand completely. In part, that’s exactly why I gave up my career as a journalist. However, I’ll admit that it makes me sad that you might give up your photography and this blog.
    As a newspaper editor and publisher, I crossed paths with many photographers and writers in my 25-year career. I saw only a handful that were truly gifted – many in the want-to-be category. You are truly gifted. You have a great eye for photography coupled with a special connection to nature, which combines to make some incredible wildlife captures.
    A year ago when I started taking photos, some other local photographers told me about your blog. I have gone back and read many of your blog entries to learn about the area’s wildlife since then. I’ve edited countless newspaper articles in my lifetime, and I know that you are also a talented storyteller and writer and could flesh out that talent.
    Lastly, I want to thank you for everything that taught me about wildlife and photography in the last year. My husband, Tim, and I have enjoyed your friendship at the local wildlife hotspots.
    With all of that being said, I know that you may choose to go down a different path and leave your photography and writing. I do understand that, but I felt it was important to share my observations of your talents – no matter what your decision is.
    Good luck. I hope that you find happiness in whatever path you choose.

      Teresa Bragg Rice,
      Thank You for the kind words. It may be a time to allow things to perc, like a good old fashioned cup of coffee cooked over a fire. I never know what comes next but expect the taste to be fulfilling. I am still getting out and will run in to you and Tim I am sure. Always enjoy our encounters and hearing what ya’ll have run across in your wandering…

  3. I know exactly how you feel but for some reason I keep plugging away. When it stops being fun it’s time for a change, I think.
    Maybe I’ll go for 10 years and then call it quits. That means 2 more, I think.

    Jim, I want you to know that I have truly missed your comradary this last week. You are not only a Great Photographer, but also a Great friend. I have learned so much from you. I hope you will get the urge to get out and about again and I can continue learning. Even if you don’t it’s a pleasure to know you.
