find the light.

Admittedly, things haven't been going too smoothly since I landed on the West Coast all of eleven days ago. Not only do I feel like nothing seems to be going right, but it almost feels as if everything that can go wrong is going wrong as well. The other night, I'd had a supremely bad evening and found myself in the most sour mood. I put a plea up on Twitter, asking my followers for suggestions to get my spirits up and an old colleague/friend/mentor Jeff Montgomery replied with "take some pictures, stop seeing crap and look for light."

It was exactly what I needed to hear/read.

The next day, I made a point to carry my camera around with me each place I went to try to take some pictures, stop seeing crap and look for the light. Not only did I find the light, but I started to remember why it was that I moved here in the first place…for the adventure, the weather and most of all, the scenery.

So, thank you Jeff, for kicking some sense into me and reminding me where to turn when I get down…to my camera and the light.
