Not What I Said...

So... I said that, upon my return, my post would feature several artists I admire for various reasons. This post does not deliver on what I said. The task of compiling sample works, contacting them for permission, expressing in words that do justice to what I admire about them, and getting it all to finally format nicely, has been a task I can't seem to get slipped in between other things right now. For that, I do apologize... know that I *will* do this soon. I have not forgotten.

Though I've been "blog-absent," I've thought of you often... I very much appreciate you guys and it felt wrong to go on without saying something to you, even just a brief update to say "hi" to old friends (and new ones)! Since I don't have the words or time to properly share the story (lots of transition and growth... good, though, I think)...

I leave this "update" to a photo I took recently, and the words of one far more eloquent than I...

The Road Not Taken- Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Hey Beholden, We all get sidetracked sometimes, I know I have for several months(lol). Just take care of yourself.

I've thought about putting other artists on my site as well, I know it is a bit of task.

In the meantime, Take care.

I have also, but just doing a small blog on 1MK has been chore.

SO I might have to recycle a blog post.

That is one awesome photograph
