Now that we’re officially into the New Year of 2012, (and according to some, potentially earth’s last year – if you believe in the ancient Mayan calendar) there’s no better time for this; The very first thing I want to do in the New Year is to offer my most sincere and humble thanks to everyone who has shown, or expressed an interest in my photography, taken the time to comment, acknowledge, share, or otherwise let me know they’ve been enjoying my work.
Those who know me and my Buddhist leanings, may also know it is very difficult for me to stand up and shout “look at me” or to call attention to myself with any overt self-promotional motivations, or with a constant sales message looming in the foreground.The fact that people are taking the time to let me know they like an image, especially if the share it with their online friends and social circles, moreover without any gimmicks or commercial promotional contests, is most gratifying and appreciated.
I’ve never really considered myself an ‘Artist’, but I’m nonetheless very humbled to know that something about my work occasionally moves another person. So thank you all once more.
… wishing all of us on This Good Earth a more blessed and peace-filled 2012.
(Btw – If it is the Earth’s last year, I’m calling dibs on a front row seat on a white sand beach in Tahiti, with a really strong umbrella cocktail in hand.)
