Yesterday ended up being a pretty decent day, overall.
I managed to finish off the book work for the first unit of my course, which just leaves the first assignment to finish before I move on to the second unit. Things are going pretty good with it so far. It’s definitely a lot to take in, but it hasn’t been as scary or overwhelming as I feared it would be.
Once Lynn got up, after my morning studying, we loaded up the dogs and headed out in the back country. I took some photos of some historical sites in the region, expanding on the shots I took back in the spring. I definitely appreciated the fact that Lynn came out with me for the trip. I know that these kind of trips are not normally her thing, but having her to help wrangle dogs was a definite plus.
After we made our way home we had some supper, and burned off a few more episodes of S.W.A.T. I definitely like that show. I’m not sure how realistic it is, but I definitely do like Shemar Moore, along with a few of the other actors who bring that show alive.
The highlight of yesterday occurred when I went back into the office last night for a bit of down-time before bed. I ended up going through the photos that I took yesterday while we were out, and figured out how to bulk edit photos and add watermarks to them.
With this new skill in hand, I have pulled off the photography page from my site, temporarily, and will be re-launching it with a new batch of photos once I get them edited and get my mark added to them. I’m hoping that I will have the new photography page up on the site within the next couple of weeks.
These new skills are continuing to reinforce the growth that I have started to see. I have started developing a passion for both the writing and the photography, and they connect to each other beautifully. It’s been a long time, but the passion for my writing is burning bright, possibly even brighter than it burned when I worked on ambulance. The more my skills continue to grow, the more I feel that I have found the right path in life.
The journey hasn’t been easy. There’s been more than a few times when I didn’t think I would make it through. At my lowest, I’ve prayed to God to take me, because I didn’t feel I could handle the strain any more. Instead of taking me, He strengthened me. He gave me a resolve to find my way when I was lost. No, it hasn’t been easy, but it’s led me to where I am today, and today I am excited for what tomorrow has to bring.
