Take a Chance and surprise yourself - Self Portrait
The surprise realisation that I am to attend the Review Santa Fe is quite a thought with the other overriding one (which Anders and Dexter are both excited about) being, "go on take a chance you might just surprise us all"! I am putting the judgement of the people who selected me that this chance is something I am to explore as they clearly know what they are talking about way more than I do in this field and if it is their belief that I am ready to go there based on what I presented then who am I to argue! This is a surprise chance that has presented itself to me so in going with it, instead of questioning "how did I get here" I will just say, wow and thank you so much for this amazing opportunity and all the other ones I have had to date in my life so far!
Review Santa Fe really has completely stopped me in my tracks and made my head spin. I know I said at the beginning of the year I was going to take a journey into Destination Unknown when I was thinking of Imogen Cunningham but I just didn't think it was going to happen so soon after writing it! So tick box in one of my resolutions (not that I have ever done them in the past so maybe this too is part of the surprise). So with all this said, I have to get prepared..... so here is the start of my journal on a trip to destination unknown.
One of the many hopefuls - Self Portrait!
