Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime’s work, but it’s worth the effort.” — Fred Rogers

You only struggle because you’re ready to grow but aren’t willing to let go.” -– Drew Gerald

This is the same problem I have with digital photography. The potential is always remarkable. But the medium never settles. Each year there is a better camera to buy and new software to download. The user never has time to become comfortable with the tool. Consequently too much of the work is merely about the technology. . . For good work to develop the technology needs to become as stable and functional as a typewriter.” — Alec Soth

    We did a 30 day trip to all the Maritime Provinces and the ferry over to New Foundland. 30 days were not enough. We were there in September 2018. I hope you make the trip.
