The Why.

Hello....? Anybody there?  
I asked my big brother if he saw "somethingorother" on my blog and he said,
"No, I stopped checking cause you never update it."  
SHOOT!  
....and that's how I lost one of my two readers.  
THE END. 
Writing is something I both resist and look forward to.  The TRUTH is I'm just NO darn good at it.  I mean..seriously WHO loses creative ammunition updating  facebook and tweeting? Me. On top of that... I've said it before, and I'll say it again... I'm nothing if not a bad speller.  That's just me.  So, if your hear and your still reading....be comforted..I do know when to use here and you're.  I'm just showing off my awesome potential. (Thank you for your phonetic reading skills. (You will need it at all times.)   Still, I'm a sucker for a beautiful picture, a great life, a good story, and a really, really, really bad day... and so I will continue pushin' on with the blog.

Plus, I have a truly personal reason for keeping a better, more detailed blog.  Last week I diagnosed my best friend, my DEAR sweet loving husband, with long AND short term memory loss.  I know- so sad, right?  No lie... I cried.  I'm like..."OH MY GOSH...I'm sharing my whole life, with this dude, who's not going to remember a true life event.  I'll be like... hey, remember when we went to Italy for two weeks, and he'll be all..."No, we went to Spain, right?".... and if I die, he'll forget my middle name and my kids will be like..what was mommy like?...and he'll say..."Mommy loved Kung Fu movies, and ice cream.  She was great."  YES, this breakdown was hormonally motivated, but nonetheless, I figure I better get some real info out there for family history preservation purposes.  Nick calls it a difference in perspective, but in his "difference of perspective world", we've been dating since we were 12.

One of my best girlfriends thinks it's obnoxious when people blog, facebook, and twitter about their lives, and then when people ask them about something they have made public, they are surprised that they know.  Actually, now that I think about it, she's probably talking about me.  Listen.  This is where I am...this is what a feel like saying and truly I appreciate you sharing the journey.  Feel free to comment.  Feel free not to comment...If I seem surprised that YOU know about my husbands memory problem...I'm not surprise...I'm just really happy you realized it too!

I have to agree with that darn Facebook sapping the creative life out of blogging! Glad you posted, grateful you're our friends, thankful to live so close to you! We're just a hop away if you ever need something (like chocolate or cookies! :)) Many alofas!

Ha ha! For us, the opposite is true: Paul's memory is like a vault. He doesn't forget anything or anyone. My mind, on the other hand, is like a sieve! He is the one that is always saying, "Remember when...?" Unfortunately, I have lost the ability to fake that I actually remember when.

And if I could take as many beautiful pictures as YOU, I wouldn't ever need to WRITE on my blog.

Kristy and Trey said...

Sundy Watanabe said...

You're still my favorite photographer Omi. Love your work. I will never forget what you said to me the night we had dinner together and I wanted to really get into photography (I even wrote it down). You truly are an inspiration.
