A wonderful weekend working with and learning from photographer and teacher Bob Seago (http://www.bobseagophoto.com/). No time now to review all the lessons learned and photos taken, but I’ll briefly share a few.
How lucky (yes, this is luck!) to have such an opportunity way out here. The writer within me is envious. For there I could use help, guidance, encouragement – but how does one find that, force that, improve one’s writing except by… writing? The rejections weigh heavy; the confidence grows thin; hope flickers. At some point, one finds it hard to rely solely on one’s own dream, and one hopes for a teacher, a mentor, or a lucky break. Who knows if one of those will come my way? In the meanwhile, I write. What else can one do?
Plan B. If all else fails, you can be a ditch digger. Classic “Caddy Shack” wisdom.
So, there you go. Today, we return to ditch camp.
