Female and Single Mom what could be rougher?
I would say the Life of a Photographer, to suffer the rejections, the never ending criticisms, to delight in the one day highs, and anquish over the 6 day lows, to want to throw your hands up all the while questioning is it worth it? Fully knowing, in the end that reason and logic go out the window, as you grab your faithful companion in hopes of getting that next great photo.
To be a photographer requires dedication, love of art, commitment, a form of armadillo skin and guts, which I have.
Photography is an ongoing passion since childhood, but sometimes other things take precedence in one`s life, and some things just have to wait, you have no choice.
Slowly, I have started getting back to my passion, it is my advocation, which I hope one day soon, to make it my vocation. I am aiming for the "stars, birds, sky, sea" whatever takes me closer to where I want to be, and gives me the incentive to never stop growing
I want to leave my "personal" mark, something other than just being categorized as a great mom, which is not a bad thing. What better way to set an example for your children than by doing it and showing them that it is never too late to accomplish your dreams!

"One day, I started writing, not knowing that I had chained myself for life to a noble but merciless master. When God hands you a gift, he also hands you a whip; and the whip is intended solely for self-flagellation...I'm here alone in my dark madness, all by myself with my deck of cards --- and, of course, the whip God gave me."
