Hello DeviantArt,

It's been yet another long stretch since I've ceased to neglect
my profile and submitting new art (which I actually tried
to do, but the upload/submit design has been so revamped
since my last time on here, I try to submit all the informa-
tion, but it still asks for a valid category when I checked the
boxes provided).

Sadly I've fallen into the old bad habit of convincing myself
that between work, home life with my love, and inconseq-
uential weather variations that I'm too busy or have made
excuses to not get out and take pictures when I have a perf-
ectly wonderful world outside the apartment. All I have to
do is go outside, find a random trail, and walk it into the
nearby foothills.

Looking back over my most recent set on the 23rd of May
this year, I feel I've lost my touch. I'm forgetting to set the
brightness filter, or not framing things as well as I used to.
Some shots still turn out very well, but I suppose I've hit
the proverbial writer's block.

Once I have the means to again, I really need to travel
more often and at great lengths. The successful have
often said that to prevent insanity and to always keep
a fresh perspective and regain motivation, one of the
best remedies is simply travel; change your surround-
ings more often to escape the daily grind.

Here's to hoping I can get back into the swing of
things artistically, and to figure out why the new
submit system isn't working lol.

You're quite welcome my friend, your work is superb and deserves recognition :) I'm glad to see you are continuing your work. I've stagnated a bit, but trying to get back into it. As for me, life has had its ups and downs. I'll text you soon with more emphasis. In the interim, I hope all is going well with you and your beloved ::hugs::
