First up, Do you SoFoBoMo?
I won an award in a contest over at the website SoFoBoMo.org. Of course, since the only competition was myself, I had some say in the matter.
SoFoBoMo is short for Solo Photo Book Month. The contest is to shoot, edit and publish a book of 35 photos in 31 days. Since I was able to do this, I am recognized as a “Finisher ’09″.
The book tells the story, in photographs, about spending 24 magical hours touring the countryside when the cherry trees blossom near Traverse City, Michigan.
You can download the book, titled “Cherryside” and all 35 images from this link: SoFoBoMo.org
Lastly, An inspiring and unfortunately true story
Through personal connections I’ve had the privilege of following a story about a family, David and Amy Wenzel, who recently learned their life will never be the same – David has a brain tumor. Even typing those words strikes fear into my heart. So actually going through such a trial is a stretch of comprehension for me.
David and Amy both have begun writing about the experience online. Both are very talented people and possess the ability to communicate at high levels. Both are leaning on their faith in a loving God to guide them in this experience. Nobody knows where all this will lead, and even though they are not superheroes with supernatural strength, their reaction to events so far has been inspiring.
Take the time to read through their posts, I doubt you’ll regret it.
