It’s not as though I didn’t take any photographs in 2018

I just didn’t post many of them.

Flowers from a Get Well bouquet in January. I had a hysterectomy . . .  pathology report came back clear, thank goodness.

2018 was a major election year in Nevada and we Democrats were very active. As a county party leader, in addition to getting asked to photograph events a lot, I was particularly busy.

“Wrecking balls inside my brain”

Dear world, we are so sorry.

Losing friends and I’m chasing sleep
Everybody’s worried about me
In too deep
Say I’m in too deep (in too deep)
And it’s been two years I miss my home
But there’s a fire burning in my bones
Still believe
Yeah, I still believe
~ Fight Song, Rachel Platten/Dave Bassett

Their daughter isn’t even walking on her own yet, and most people would understand if they chose to stay home, but this young family drove over 200 miles from the San Francisco Bay Area to northern Nevada to canvass on behalf of our candidates. It was that important to them.

11 days.
