Holy crap! it's been a while since I've been on here!

My total lack of activity can be attributed mostly due to my increased level of responsibility at work. I'm all about career at the moment... I want to build myself a a solid nest egg, so I can retire myself at some tropical island somewhere (where the beaches are pebble beaches, cause I hate sand) - LOL I wish!

There was some work related drama, which i won't elaborate on too much. All I can say is I'm keepin' it pro and being the best I can be for my friends and colleagues. Still love the people I work with, and they keep me coming back everyday and are the reason why I'm still here. Also looking forward to managing up-coming projects which will keep me busy and out of trouble :)

So yeah, been working hard mostly and also looking after myself physically and mentally. Fitness is GREAT at the moment. Recovered quite well from my knee dislocation and resulting Pulmonary Embolism (PE) from last year, though the knee does get a bit dodgy sometimes. I don't think I'll ever be competitive in martial arts again (or any sport for that matter), but I'm just grateful to be walking, running, and doing stuff... DOING STUFF IS AWESOME!!!

Had a bit of a mental/psychological/spiritual "down" period during this time last year as well, mostly as a result being injured and the PE, but I got help and I'm ok. I don't like to talk about it much- seems a bit wrong cause other people have had it tougher, and needed the love and affection more. My issues were trivial in retrospect :/ ... but yeah MOVING ON...

Glasses... I still need them. YES, I am a total expert in procrastination. However in my last eye sight test, the optometrist did mention that I didn't legally need to wear glasses in order for me to drive a car, so I think I can get away with not wearing glasses for a little while longer ;P

Anyway, this blog is about art and photography so I'll talk about that now. Okay, i haven't picked up the camera due to above reasons, however I will be having some well deserved time off during the last 2 weeks of May, so I will be spending some quality time with Delilah. I'll be taking her out on photo safaris and whatnot, doing a lot of landscape and cityscape / urban photography. I think some alone time is warranted... just me, my trusty camera, and stuff to take photos of, however feel free to chuck a photographic assignment at me during this time, I'd probably be more than happy to take it up! I also have a back-log of photos (about 2 months worth) to post process, which i haven't had the time to get through, so i'll be working on those as well.

Anyway that's it from me for now. Thank you if you've bothered to read this far and keep an eye out for the stuff that i'll be posting up in May - or maybe sooner!
