I haven’t felt much like blogging these past few weeks because, as the holiday approaches and the days darken, I struggle with positive ways to move through it. And with last week’s shootings in Oregon and Connecticut, I felt uncomfortable posting about the ordinary, everyday things in which I find joy. Jeff and I often talk about politics and social issues with each other, but outside people whom I’ve known a long time, it is difficult for me to articulate how I think or feel about these things to the Internet world. I’ve retreated to my iPhone camera for creative refuge, possibly my main reason for even buying one. Maybe iphoneography is lazy photography, but I love its convenience and the social networking aspect of sharing photos with others; it challenges me to visually document my daily life and relieves the pressure of always trying to find the right words.
