happy monday to you all

as reynolds and i pile into our cars and prepare for our commutes,
we bid you a cheerful "good morning"!
reynolds has a far longer journey than i, as he passes through the mountains of regular and west virginias
on his way back to columbus.
i begin my day atop a surprisingly cold garage rooftop in uptown charlotte.
it is a remarkably quiet place at 6 in the morning
and it reminds me to upload and email my weekly photo submissions...

solitude a la reynolds & baron...

I've been an introvert my entire life. I once thought I was shy, and to a degree, around women, I am, but the truth is that I like being alone. With my thoughts to keep me company, I use that time to look inward and analyze who I am and what I've become. Lately, I've had nothing but time alone as I'm working in Columbus, Ohio, leaving my fiance and kids in Charlotte. Every weekend I go home because being away from them becomes harder and harder. I miss their energy, their presence. Walking into my apartment after spending the weekend with them sucks. So I hop in my car and think. I think about the foundation I am laying to provide for my family. I think about how much I like my car. I think about the photos I'd love to take along my route (one day I'm going to do it) and I think about how much I love my family. So much, I'm willing to sacrifice this time with them.
