It’s not even two weeks into October, and I have missed a day. After a horrendous weekend that saw my beloved South Carolina flooded and two days at home until we could return to work, I am back at Remington College. Yesterday, students returned. During the day, we heard the stories. One of my students lost everything when the roof of her house collapsed. Other students told stories of cars being flooded. Fortunately, none of our students lost their lives or the lives of their family.
Then another student suffered a health scare that has left her in a medically induced coma in intensive care. Our hearts are breaking.
I am setting my Thirty-One Day series aside for a few days–until next week. My students need me. I need to be present. Sunday will be soon enough to pick up the camera and play with words. I promise, though, that I will follow through with all thirty-one days on the theme of contemplative photography.
I know you will understand.
