No photowalk for you….
There is a Photowalking group in Utah, oddly enough named Photowalking Utah. I have wanted to go and attend one of these. Last month I had to “help” someone move, only they never showed up so I sat on the doorstep waiting and watching the time go by. This month there was a walk in downtown Salt Lake, while I was, and am not interested in architectural photography I want to go to get ideas and make contacts. Well we had a Make-A-Wish party for the daughter of a friend at work, and I had planned on being dropped off at the walk and when it was over catch a bus home. Well, we got done with the party and got downtown to drop me off and I couldn’t find my wallet, which I KNEW that I had at the party. After driving back and looking high and low for the wallet I gave up, and drove home to find it on my nightstand (compliments of your friendly neighborhood idiot). There is one next week (on Food Photography the area I am most interested in) that I don’t know if I will be able to go to since I will have a pretty heavy duty training going on that week. It’s like the heavens and earth are conspiring against me.
I am actually worried that somehow I am sabotaging myself. The thought of going out and meeting new people make me a little sick to my stomach. As all of the regular readers of my blog know, my people skills take a little getting used to, and I am always worried that I will say the wrong thing to the wrong person. Well because experience has shown me that I will. Anyway, that is way to much self-inspection for one post.

Also Stars and Stones is a quote from my favorite author, Jim Butcher, and his The Dresden Files series. If you ever want a good series both Dresden Files (it starts out a little rough but at book three it really takes off) and the Codex Alera (which quite possibly is my all time favorite set of books) make some GREAT reads.
