    Spring Abstract

    I would like to thank Cran for allowing me to share more of my images.

    I have neglected my photography for a few months now while I have tried to market my book (Another Sunrise). I have become a little depressed by the fact that my images don't seem to move anyone else like they move me. I have spent an enormous amount of time in nature trying to get back the passion that I seem to have lost. Photographing nature is the thing, along with writing, that has kept me focused on living (Due to terminal cancer for those who are unaware). It has become a little frightening for me that the excitement of shooting nature has seemed to have faded. I have several hard drives full of images that I decided will probably never be seen by another human; I have even considered deleting them. My thought process is: I captured them to distract myself from wallowing in self-pity. They, in that sense, have served their purpose. I have gotten to the point that I have way too many images to manage. Here are a few that were picked for no particular reason other than they represent the direction in which my style has evolved.

    I hope you enjoyed my passion.

    They are beautiful images, even blurred through the tears that you've moved me to. I hope you don't delete your pics, Dave, that would be a shame.

    Thank you Gumby... I am just feeling a little down -- I'll get through it.

    I can't claim to fully understand what you're going through, but we are in a similar situation with my daughter in law, she's only 28. I often find myself thinking as I go about everyday things or sights, that she will probably never get to do or see this again. I do hope that you are at least able to go out and about, rather than be bedridden.

    I am very sorry to hear about your daughter-in-law. Tell her that yesterday is gone, and tomorrow is not promised. She should spend her time in the moment, and not let her thoughts steal from her "now." I often get angry at myself for wasting my time dwelling on events of the past, and fretting over that which has not yet happened.

    I am still able to go for short hikes into nature, but I always make sure to tell my wife the general area I am going. I get tired easily, but I will never stop. I have come to believe that someday there will be a search party looking for me. That is okay because nature is where I want to be.

    My best to you and your family.
