I have two special announcements today. The first one being that if you are interested in attending Squam, the spring 2013 registration is now open!
The second announcement is that I am honored that Elizabeth and her team have used a few of my photos on the new Squam website. There is a slide show on the home page and my photos filter through the show. In the grand scheme of things, it is not a big deal, butI feel honored because it's a testament to how much I've grown personally. First and foremost to have even attended in 2009 was a big deal. It's not like me to fly across the country by myself to participate in a creative camp that was so outside of my box. This blog is a result of that trip.
But life is about taking chances and making new discoveries about yourself. This year was my second trip. If I were to compare myself from then to now, I've grown immensely. Not only in my abilities as a photographer, journaler, and artist but also emotionally. I handle and carry myself differently. So to see that woman end up with a few photos on a very public page is humbling. It's a small affirmation that what I'm doing matters, who I am is important, and that my roots are spreading. Everyone needs to feel that from time to time.
I do hope you get to go someday. It will change you, I promise.
