Again, I hope we’ve left temperatures in the 30s behind us. Again, I hope spring is really, truly here.
And I am grateful I don’t live in Texas — because of the horrific winter storm there, because of their inadequate utility infrastructure, because of Ted Cruz and whoever that governor is who slings blame everywhere but where it belongs. I hope a storm like that never comes to Florida. I think our infrastructure is better but our governor is as bad or worse.
Most of all, I hope the good citizens of Texas recovery quickly and hold their elected officials responsible for criminal ineptitude.
If we’ve learned anything in this pandemic, it’s that we must cling to anything that deserves our gratitude.
And, one of those things is photography!!
For the past year of never-ending horrors, photography helped me stay grounded and grateful.
