Persistence (noun)

Firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.

At least it doesn’t say continuous.

It’s been a while. A stressful semester overall wound up with a frantic push to finish grades while preparing to lead an overseas study program for the School of Journalism. I’m afraid that while the vision didn’t waver, putting that vision into words took a back seat.

It’s difficult to pick up in the same vein. I’ve been trying to figure out what the next topic should be, and there are so many. Another couple of photojournalists killed. New views of World War I uncovered. Agencies that have represented the elite of photojournalism redefining themselves and experimenting with different ways to raise capital.

But then it became apparent that the main thing was to get rolling again. It also became apparent that not everything has to be a “deep thought” about photography. Sometimes sharing what others have written, or just putting something of my own out there reflects the persistent vision. So, in spite of difficulty I obstinately return to the keyboard. There is more to write about. In the meantime, a view from Florence, Italy.
