Today, Milford Sound was silver and grey. The walls of the sound are black granite that shines in the rain, the mist is grey and silver. On almost every rockface, a perfect waterfall was crashing into the sound. Some of them were huge, others were little ribbons of white against the rocks. Today, was the closest I’ve ever felt to being perfectly happy.
And then, you know, my Dad and I had a two hour long conversation about why my passions are a waste of time and how utterly worthless I apparently am, so right now I am kind of a mess and just trying to remember that five hours ago, feeling incomprehensibly small was a GOOD thing.
I need a hug.
I SAW THE MOTHERFUCKING PENGUINS. :D :D :D :D
Also, guys, I just got an email from smugmug…
We’re happy to tell you that on the next business day after the 7th of this month we will be electronically transferring $214.22 to the bank you have on file. This represents your profits through the end of last month.”
So, all of you who contributed to the cause after my car accident, thanks. Thanks SO MUCH. I don’t really have enough words to express how much it means to me that you donated even a little bit to buy a mug or a card or a print, but it is a lot. Photography has been my personal fortress against the worst sorts of depression, and personal upheaval. Keeping my equipment in repair helps keep me away from things like jumping off of bridges, so, thank you. SO VERY VERY MUCH.
(I also really hope that my photos make you happy, too. I mean, that’s why I share them.)
You’re the absolute best.
