Miss Emma and I met by chance, and I am so glad that we did. She is so much fun and Im so happy that she and I became friends during my time here! A little while ago she agreed to let me photograph her so we met up at her house and to my delighted surprise she lives in the coolest place ever! It is her grandmothers old home, and on an enormous amount of property, full of farms, dogs named Sam and some quality old cars. We even were able to convince her brother Ian that he wanted to let us photograph him for a few shots as well. 

Long Time Gone...

So I haven't written or posted anything in quite a long time, and to be quite honest my inconsistency doesn't surprise, but it does disappoint me. I only have 3 nights left as a California resident. Im getting really down about it actually. Sure I am looking forward to seeing my friends and family back home, but part of my heart will remain here. When I decided to move to California I thought it was going to be long term. I expected to put down some roots and start a life out here, and it feels a little bit like I failed. I know that my going home has nothing to do with Failure and what started out as a rash decision turned into something that I need to do for family reasons... But still. A small part of me has let myself down.

There are so many amazing things about living here. So many fantastic people. Just this week I made some new friends that I wish I was going to be able to spend more time getting to know. But this is life. People get shuffled about and its all an Adventure. So it is all I can do to participate by looking forward to my next Great Adventure.
