its has been a while. and a lot of things have changed for me. i’ve come to realize that photography isn’t the end all for me. that the end all for me is how i live my life. so for the next 6-9 months, i’m gonna just put my head down and take every job that comes my way. be it cleaning toilets or lighting a celebrity, i’ll do it. i’m gonna save all of that money and cash out.

i bought a motorcycle. i have my m1 motorcycle license. now i just have to ride and get comfortable w/ the bike. cause come the end of the year, that bike is taking me south to tierra del fuego and back (i hope). i need to get out of the rat race. i need to leave all the pretensions behind. i need to get back to why i love being a photographer.

man.  because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.  then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.  and then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.

~ dalai lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity.
