I know I don't have a lot of really loyal followers. Some of you guys are, though, and I can't thank you enough for your support. It is to you guys that I owe an apology. My posts have been inconsistent lately, coming sparsely and with little promise for those ahead. And it is very unlikely that that is going to change anytime soon.
Photography has been a passion of mine for years, but as much as I enjoy it I'm also aware that photography is not my future. For guys like me it will always be just a hobby. And I'm okay with that. I never planned to make a career out of it. And that's why it doesn't bother me much to say that right now I'm stepping away from that hobby to pursue a dream.
I have a legitimate shot at making a living doing something that I genuinely love and have talent at. It's something that has been a dream of mine for years, and for as many years I have been trying to come up with a way to make that dream come true. Before I was incarcerated it was something I made a half-hearted attempt at pursuing, though never with any vigor or enthusiasm. While I was incarcerated it was something that the people around me always told me I needed to pursue when I rejoined the outside world. Those in my life have told me for years now that I have too much talent to waste. Well, after all this time I've now found a way to make that dream a reality. I have to go after it.
Only about 1 in every 3.6 million people achieve what I am hoping to. It's going to be a very long, hard road over the next year or so to get where I hope to go. It's going to take every spare second I have outside of work to prepare myself for this. As much as I love things in my life like songwriting and photography and other such hobbies, I'm going to have to put them aside while I chase this dream.
That's not to say I won't take some pictures here and there that end up on my page. That will still happen. But my posts will be infrequent and may not be up to par with some of the content I have been posting. I apologize to those few people who really do enjoy my content, but prioritizing my time and effort into pursuing this endeavor is a must. Thanks guys. 🤙
