Well… ummm… it has been almost two years since I’ve worked on the ‘Sabbatical’ portion of this blog. What can I say?
I realize that it may be a fool’s errand to try picking it back up again now. It’s very possible that nobody cares to hear about my sabbatical adventures anymore (they’re ‘old news,’ after all), BUT I remain determined to finish blogging about that wonderful year, even if just for myself. I mean… it would just be too depressing for the (literally) thousands of photos I took to simply sit in my private computer files forever. I shudder at the thought – images (and stories) are meant to be shared and enjoyed!
And so… here I go again, back to the story of my sabbatical – a little trip down memory lane, bit by bit.
(For those of you that are new to the blog: from July 2012 to June 2013, I took an artistic sabbatical from my work as a preschool teacher in Philadelphia so I could travel around the world to work at various artist residencies. I spent two months in Nepal, followed by three months in France, one month in Santa Fe, New Mexico, two months in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and another three months in Paris. An odd combo of locales, sure, but you know… it was pretty awesome. If you want to start from the beginning and read the tale in chronological order, go HERE, scroll to the very bottom of the page, and read up from there).
To get the ball rolling again, I’ll start with a simple post of photographs – a mish-mash of some of my favorite shots from my first three months in France that, for one reason or another, haven’t made it onto the blog just yet. Enjoy…
More posts from my 2012-2013 sabbatical year coming soon!
