Default Hey All

Hi Everyone,

I know it's been quite a while and all I've been doing is keeping the lights on. To be exact the last two years have been a living hell. During that time I have done a lot of hard personal work which has helped me find healing and be ready to move forward. I am now at a point where I am stable in a new job. That has helped me financially and in a couple of months I will be financially stable again. That in itself is a huge relief.

Quick update:

* I am seeing a new lady who I am really liking. Just taking it a day at a time
* Haven't done any 3D work since the separation/divorce. It may be a while yet before I do
* Looking to be debt free be mid next year so I'll be getting out and doing some photography soon to shore up my stock work
* I'll be looking to get the site back on the move. At least for Premiere content. I have some people to take care of first.

I can't really give much more of an update than that. Other than to say I am happy again and as much as it hurt the experience has given me the opportunity to deal and childhood trauma and baggage which few ever really do. It' has allowed me to understand myself and who I really am and what it important to me. Knowing that has given me a clear understanding of what I want from life and who I would be willing to spend it with. Like I said, not many really ever find that place and I am glad to be at this point.

My goal for the site right now is just to get myself back into the flow and try to ease back into my role. You all have my deepest appreciation for staying the course with me. Those who stepped up to run the site and those who just showed up. It'll be a little slow but it's good to be back

Thanks everyone. It is better and just a matter of time before I'm getting back into things. In some ways it's liberating and in other ways I didn't want to be liberated. One day at a time and learning what dreams make sense to chase.

I've been keeping up with you on Facebook, as you know. But I'll say it here: I'm very happy for you. Happy that you like the new partner, happy the job is stable (what a miracle that is in this day and age), happy that you're thinking of 3D again.

It's the little things in life.

Thanks Bill,

You two will always be special to me. I hope we get an opportunity to meet again once I've found a landing place. Still in parachute mode at the moment. Meaning, I've met someone I really like and really likes me but I am still in transition. If that makes any sense at all.

Makes sense to me. Good luck. If you ever need help with the site, I'll be glad to do whatever I can.

All this right here. Especially the lateness. Clearly I don't pop in nearly often enough anymore!
