It has taken me well into my fifties to embrace the pain and discomfort that come with change and growth. Even when it hurts, I won't give in. Learning never ends - really. I am learning to make new relationships with friends who write letters from far away. (Hi Miss Polly from Portland). I am learning photography for the joy of the process with much less concern for the final product. I want to learn film photography and darkroom methods. I practice yoga and accept the contentment that comes from simply being. Santosha is my mantra. I'm learning to let go. And not every step of the way feels comfortable, but the path is worthwhile.
