more okay than I thought

Today was a good day.

Even on a cold and rainy day, my friends showed up for our photography book club. The discussion was lively with a good measure of sharing and genuine encouragement. My goal is always to make stronger photographs that connect with the viewer and this book club will help me to meet that goal. But what I hadn’t counted on was the reassurance I found among this group. Reassurance that I am on the right path for me, that I am more okay than I thought. I’m thankful for this fine group of photographers who help me to see the best in myself.

And it’s my pleasure to do the same for them.
