The Long Way Home


Five Years

March marks five years of blogging on The Long Way Home! I started this blog as a way to make myself write weekly about food and travel which is what I write mostly about in my freelance life. But somewhere along the way, it took another turn: photography became so important to me that the blog evolved into a personal online art journal. I think of each post as illustrated chapters, and it’s been years since I’ve kept a written journal (although I still keep my photo notes journal – I just started another one. Nothing like a fresh new paper-and-ink journal to  get the creativity going). Five years also marks my joining Flickr and Utata, an online arts group of photographers who opened worlds for me: their support, creativity and kindness over the years has really helped me to develop my photographic eye, and be brave enough to share that eye in public. Blogging, more than anything, has connected me with people I wouldn’t have met otherwise because of distance. (I’m hugging the ‘net through the screen now). Thank you to my blog readers and friends with whom I’ve made creative connections with over the years – it makes me happy and keeps me adventuring.
