onwards and upwards

It’s been a rollercoaster couple of weeks where I have felt overwhelmed, frustrated, fobbed off, paranoid, stressed, enthused, excited and many other emotions – all because of work, photography, study and the rather bleak broader realities of my industry today. It’s not a great state to be in mentally but as tends to happen, lots of different things started to suddenly go much better this week and I once again feel as if I have some kind of balance and momentum. It’s calm right now but I sense that life is going to get very frantic over the coming weeks, starting with a whistle-stop work trip to London on Monday in which I’m cramming catching up separately with two friends, meeting a couple of MA colleagues for the first time, and a work assignment into less than 48 hours…yep, it’s going to be busy.
