Snail Pace

Update: Still recovering from Solu medrol treatment. Unfortunately, not as quickly as I had hoped. As with any treatment, there are side effects. I have experienced serveral side effects which seem to be worse than what I was being treated for. I am very anxious to return to work, walk my dog, and take photos. If anyone has first hand experience on this type of treatment, please pass it along.
Thanks to everyone for sending well wishes and positive encouragement.

Your photographs speak to the soul. They can make you laugh, make you cry, make you feel emotions you didn't realize you had inside you, they make you think. Brilliant!

I would love to have a coffee table book of your work. You are truly a treasure to the world of photography.

I am praying for you every day and asking God to cradle you in his arms and bless you with comfort and healing.
God Bless You

I couldn't agree more with Philonise. Your work should be in a book. Remember ever when it gets hard to keep thinking positively, it all starts with your frame of mind. If you can see yourself well them you will be well. WJV

Philonise is right - your photographs always evoke emotion, and I can always pick yours out instantly without looking at the byline. You are a true artist.

Wishing you a speedy recovery so you can get strong and get back to the work that you love. My get-well thoughts will be with you every day.

Thank you all for the wonderful words of encouragement. It really means alot.
Sometimes fighting with all you have means being still and quiet.
I am making progress at a snails pace. And really looking forward to the day I can hold my camera again.
