Hi Kristi. As you can tell, I (and many others) were moved by it. We hear from quite a few people who aspire to live a life of passion and beauty, people who want to do exactly what the photographer did: pursue his passion at the expense of his pocketbook and a more comfortable, stable studio life. For me, it's a challenge as I think of my own passions and my willingness to pursue them at any cost.
Obviously, these types of stories have different appeal for various folks, and I respect that. For our blog, I ask all our writers to bring themselves to their pieces and not just "report" — and this is what I tried to do. The onus is on me to deliver on my promise, and I thought this did. I didn't mean to disappoint you but hope that you enjoyed it even if it didn't move you to pondering. :) Cheers!
