This photo blog came about through the helpful suggestion of my Uncle who has been very supportive through these challenging times. Photography is quite therapeutic and has been a great way to [re]connect with people.
ABOUT ME: I am Toronto born and raised in the late 60s. A much different time. Many years ago, I lived abroad for 6 years and travelled to 12 countries. The intensity of the experience left me disoriented. I also left an excellent airlines job to pursue environmental studies and non-profit work, ideally supporting co-operatives – which I believe are a necessary and invaluable counterbalance to pure capitalism. Unfortunately, increasing mental health issues left me caring very little about the world around me. I have been diagnosed with a more serious diagnosis, plus PTSD, anxiety, and depression.
UPDATE: Having been through various ups and downs (including 10 hospitalizations in 10 years), I’m glad to say I’m currently going through an ‘up’ time — I’m volunteering and attending various self-development courses (2014). I have been serially employed and also attend various support programs (2018).
NOTE: I use a Canon Powershot camera; basically a point-and-shoot. People at the (now-defunct) Photography Meetup always laugh at me! 🙂
PLEASE NOTE: The Header photo was not taken by me; it came with the template.
