Or rather, where was I? Yes, I know it’s been two years since I posted anything here. Bad times for me, but life is beginning to look up. I am currently working on a short story, which I will post here when it’s completed. It is a combination of a science fiction/love story. I hope you enjoy it. The beauty of summer, even in the desert country. My hobby, in addition to writing, that is photography. Saturday I decided to try and capture some of the beauty that surrounds me. Sunflowers are in full bloom around my house, so I decided to see if I could freeze time. I also wanted to try macro photography and see what I could accomplish. Overall I am happy with the results, but I know I have a long way to go.
