the return


Oh, look.

I have returned.

..And the title of this post reminds me of a movie sequel. You know, the ones who just can't bring themselves to be called, "The Movie, Part Two," so they entitle themselves something impressive like, "The Return," and it ends up being super emotional and dramatic. I guess you could compare this blog to a movie of sorts--I am returning, and it does feel like a sequel. Hopefully not an emotional and dramatic one. But don't count on that.

 I feel like Lucy, stepping back from her trip to Narnia to find that nothing has changed--all is as it should be; albeit a bit dusty.I apologize for such a long, unexplained absence, dear friends (are you still there? I won't blame you if you have vanished like Aslan did when he knew the time was right). My life has changed so much: for the better, for the worse, but mostly for the 'busier.' I am now attending a community college three days a week, and on top of homework, daily life, and the occasional big photography job, I am...swamped, to say the least.

But I wanted to come back to this. And when it all comes down to it, it was one word that brought me back--breathe. When I write, I breathe. And that is what I have missed. Breathing. I feel like I haven't caught a decent breath of air in months, and not just because of a lack of writing. Life has gotten....at best, weird. I feel like a stranger to the girl of eight months ago. But not an entirely bad stranger, so maybe you'll still like me. 

Mostly, I feel like I've grown up. A lot. And I have a love/hate relationship with the fact.

Photos? I have millions of them. Not even kidding. Words? They're all here, in my head, ready to spill out once again as inky type on the crisp white screen. What is my plan for this little corner of the web which has become so distraught with disuse? Well. I don't exactly know. But what I do know is this: I have returned, and I have much to share (even if it's to myself. But that's okay. I like talking to myself. I can deal with that).

  19. Welcome back, Lucia!
    I took a long break from blogging as well. Not only because I was attending my first semester of college, but because......I just needed to leave my blog alone for a while. I think you understand what I mean.
    I am quite looking forward to your beautiful photography and inspiring words <3

  20. I know the college business part. I just graduated and although I never had a ton of decently strenuous homework like my sister (she was a math major, I was history), you get worn out after hours of class with tons of strangers, particularly after being home-schooled and very-home oriented (we weren't the most interactive bunch when I was younger). I am sure you have had even more on your plate than even.

  25. I just discovered your blog probably a week ago, and as an aspiring but completely amateur photographer, I've been enjoying all the beautiful photography in your previous posts and hoping you'd post again! I'm so glad you did! By the looks of it, there are a whole lot of people who agree with me! But please don't feel obligated to put posting on this blog above the life you've been given. It's always nice to breathe through writing, but sometimes you need to take a breath from writing too. But just keep living for Jesus and you'll be fine! :) thanks for sharing your heart with us!
