    Tia: hahaha. Thanks. Ah so sososososo. Mmm yes enjoy your adventure in ATL… no need to go to the other side of the world! Yeah, just keeping shooting. I always always have my camera slung on my shoulder. Only shoot when you are inspired though. I got burnt out and didn’t take many photos for about a year but I’m balancing my vision now. Sometimes it’s best to forget the camera and just enjoy the moment.

    Ines: Thanks girl! Hope life is being kind to you!

      Hey Hermit! Ah thank you! I hope i’ll be back your way this summer in time for the crawfish boil! my next wwoof host is the “hemp seed bakery” (perfect for me, ne?) – http://www.asanomibakery.com – They have a link that says “hemp surfboards” on their home page that links to Jimmy (or his friend’s?) shop in Isumi city! It’s a small world! and an even smaller island! Tell Yuko, Hana, Jimmy and friends I said Hello!
