Life Is Good!
A couple of months ago I received an email from Marta inquiring if she could use one of my photos for the cover of the magazine she worked for. Well, that blew my socks off. And what is so ironic is that this is a Texas magazine (where I grew up). Obviously I still have some of that Texas in me for a gulf coast magazine to reach out to this midwestern gal. I have been in the midwest far far longer than I ever lived in Texas, but some of those southern genes just stay and never leave.
Ofcourse I said yes. My only request was that I would get credit for the photo, which as you can see, they did. I received two copies in the mail on Tuesday, one that I shared with my B&N group on Wednesday, now I am sharing with you.
Let me tell you, it's quite humbling to be singled out from afar to publish a piece of my photography. My friend, Sarah, from Paisley Rain Boots, recently had a whole article along with photography and her wonderful story-telling published in a well-known lifestyle magazine. I can imagine her thoughts when approaching the magazine rack at her local B&N. Admittedly I won't have that same awe, since gulf coast healthy lifestyles is not published around here, but it doesn't extinguish that same sense of wonder to see your photography and name published.
Congratualations to us both and to all those who have been singled out for their talents and there are many. My only regret is that I didn't begin this love of photography much earlier in my life, but I will keep at it until my hands can no longer hold my camera or my eyes can no longer see.

Until next time.....
