Many are asking why I seemed to have dropped out of all the organizations and everything else I was doing –
Well as some of you know I am a perfectionist in everything that I do. As I get older I am finding that the stress related to perfection can take a toll on your health.
I haven’t been feeling good lately, and a trip to my doctor during one of my episodes revealed a blood pressure of 250 over 160 – not good. So I am now on a regimen of exercise and better diet, and monitoring my pressure a couple of times a day. I am hoping to control it without medication, but I guess we will see. Going for additional tests next week, will keep everyone informed.
I need to take care of my health right now, I hope to be able to teach, and hang out with everybody at Seniors Ignite, After Dark, and my friends at all of the State and Local Organizations again real soon.
I am still actively shooting, although I have restricted the number of shoots, the number of seniors, and the number of commercial clients that we can take on. We are also restricting our travel to one location shoot this year, and only one workshop.
I am also training a girl to take over the day to day operations of Studio K so I can get back to doing the things that I love to do.
