2011 was the busiest year I have encountered in a long time, filled with graduate school and work. Some work was awesome and some work was horrific. I was littered with some tough personal issues, including the death of my Mother-In-Law, Carole and the illness and death of a new friend, Dave Prifti, a talented and highly regarded local photographer. It was the year of, "It is what it is" and ushers in the year of "What it will be." I look forward to 2012, regardless of what the Mayans think. Look forward to the road ahead, and lots more posting.
