And Life 2 Go

Dusting off an old friend...'s been 272 days since I last posted on this blog.

There are a variety of reasons for this. I'm a lot busier now that I'm a father of a (now) 1 year old daughter. I admit I haven't been very inspired to blog... many of the blogs that initially inspired me are now non-existant or even more dormant than mine. The company I work for now blocks almost all personal and photo websites, so I have to do all my "blog" surfing at home. I suppose the main reason, however, is that I've just been plain lazy.

I won't try and summarize what has happened the past 272 days. I feel truly blessed and amazed to be a father of a beautiful, healthy baby. But besides that, I have really fell off the "creativity and productivity wagon". I barely ever play guitar these days, my photography interested has waned, and I've gotten myself fairly out of shape. Many personal projects I had planned haven't even been started, many others started but never finished.

I was going to wait to get back on this "wagon", like many others probably are who plan to change, until the New Year. I mean really, it's only two weeks away. But then again, why wait? Honestly, I should have gotten myself out of this rut 272 days ago. Two more weeks of un-creativity and un-productiveness just doesn't sound appealing.

And so today, my faithful readers, I am back. And for me, and for those of you who read this simple little blog, this is going to be the proof that I am.

Let the games begin.
