Ready For A New Day

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 31, 2014, 11:29 AM

Hello to all of my friends here on DA, and to the friends yet to be met. I apologize for my absence, but life has brought many changes, some were for the better to help me grow stronger, and discover the ability to allow new hope to arise in my heart. Other things involve stories of drama and heartbreak, and often I have found it best to not drive others crazy with the issues that often try to drag us down. But as always, I prefer to cast my focus on the positive, to look ahead and not to look behind.

I guess I can relate this to a physical climb up a mountain, we struggle and often become exhausted during our climb up. But finally we will reach the top, and as we go over the crest of the mountain, we look back and we can no longer see the rough trail that we had to encounter in our quest to reach the top of this mountain. We look back now and see the skyline over the crest behind us, and we look forward and begin to see a world that was hidden to us before we crossed over the crest of the mountain to enter into it. And often now we have reached a place to where we can begin to catch our breath, and look forward instead of constantly looking behind us into our past.

I had also allowed my passion and love for photography to become a task. After doing so many photos and trying to meet deadlines, you often forget about the joy of just doing something to create, or express your imagination. But with all art we need to always keep our hearts filled with the excitement of seeing what might be manifested, if we allow our minds to keep reaching out into places we have never been before.

I don't like to use this page as a place to promote things, but since my passion for photography is once again being awakened, I have created a Facebook page which might sometimes have more recent images on it, than what I have time to post here as soon. So I invite you to visit me there, at Photography By Tommy Propest…

Thank You all for all of your support and encouragement to me, these past few years.

Life is really short, so we should allow for moments along the way to enjoy and appreciate all that is around us. But at the end of the road, when we look back and count all of the treasures we have gained along the way. To me those that would hold the greatest value are the friends that we have made from day to day. And that of our family that we hold so dear!
I love the art of photography, because even if our memories should ever fade, we have a tangible record, of those special people and places, that have touched our lives!
I have been blessed to live in many places, but to still always have the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to call my home. We have the full experience of all of the seasons, and if you want to enjoy and take in the beauty of creation, you don't have to travel far to do so.
The only thing lacking is the world of people yet to be met and added to that precious list called friends.

Current Residence: Candler, just outside of Asheville, North Carolina
