Looking Forward

I'm about half way through this alphabet challenge, though I admit that I'm slow about it. It makes me think about what will come after this set of posts. Start over? Write whatever I want? It's hard to think about it when I don't have a structure to write within.
Or maybe I won't write? Maybe I'll just post photos? I have no idea.
I've had some success with getting some of the creative projects 'on to paper' so to speak, since the last post. I have a collection of photos, a skeleton outline of my commune project, and a more fully outlined mystery novel, with a paranormal idea for a novel as well. My romance novel is stuck at around 5k, and I'm not sure what to do with it, really.
My business cards arrived today. They have my new name and contact information. I can't help but feel a rush of excitement that I am moving forward into the world as Cadence, trying on the the name as I get through the legal documentation. I've even joined Facebook again (on a very limited basis) to see how that feels.
I will say, there is an unexpected amount of joy in seeing my name come up at the top of the page, and seeing it there when I reply to an email. Opening the box with my business cards was even more thrilling. It's real! I'm real!
I feel like a butterfly. The past six months I have been in a chrysalis - healing, changing, reforming. Now I am getting my first peaks at the outside world from this new perspective.

  1. I have to say that you take awesome pictures, and I could totally see that being shared here even as you finish up the A to Z challenge. I don't see why not.

    If you keep up with the photography you will surely have plenty to spread through the challenge and thereafter.

    It's cool you got business cards and while I was really kind of nervous (it's how I am) about the whole Stranger Danger photo shoots it seems to be coming along quite well.

    Being back on FB sure makes it a tad easier to keep in touch with friends, even if it does bring you one step (or three) closer to those you wish to avoid as well.

    Gotta take the good with the bad. Bad with the good? Bad with the good would make sense since wanting to avoid the bad, but it gets mushed in with the good... Swear it's said take the good with the bad, though. I refuse to Google.

    Fuck that saying. You know what I mean ;-)

    I hope you like what you see so far from your new perspective!
