It never ceases to amaze me how life’s twists and turns can change one’s life without even knowing how they happen. We’ve all heard stories about someone deciding to not get on a plane that ends up crashing or the worker who calls in sick on the very day of the horrid 9/11 incident.
This hobby has given me so many opportunities to meet new people and in some cases they have turned into friendships I will have the rest of my life. Through a simple turn of events I met Tracy online at Weeklyshot.org early last year. And on June 4 2007, she and I met for the very first time face to face at San Francisco International Airport.
My children and close friends all thought me to be completely mad to have a woman who I knew only through photography, email and phone calls come to stay with me for a week. I could never have imagined that I’d trust someone enough to have them live with me, but once we spent time together, the rest is history.
So on this anniversary of our first face to face I can only reflect in appreciation and happiness. And it never ceases to amaze me…
