There is always a pause before writing. Sometimes the pause is longer than others.
Andrew H. Towle. Old Guy; according to some, not so much, according to others. 1946, the year of origin, July, 11; the month and day, at 6:15 a.m. Perhaps that explains the early morning personality. Always up before sunrise, getting a fast and early start to the day. So much to do, so little actual time, left.
Average student in school. Average radio ops/air traffic controller in Air Force. Really good student in Photo-School. Bounced around to too many photo jobs after graduating. A rolling stone, for sure. Not gathering moss has its disadvantages.
Yes, there was much to learn and it was learned. But there is always a price to pay for the choices we make. After a certain wake-up call took place a new sense of purpose took hold. Some people wake up, shake themselves hard and dig in and begin life with a new sense of purpose. Some people roll over and never get up again, some people make the same mistake again and go through the rest of their lives repeating the same steps and still only getting the same result and then wonder "why?".
Life was never the same after my wake-up call. It got better. Of course, not right away, but it got better. There are still lessons that haven't been learned. There always will be that. For the most part, there has been much joy, excitement, and fulfillment with the choices that have been made since. This life has been well lived in the second half. May it continue to be so.
Why Andy's Frame? Back in the day, before computers, before images were digitized, saved to disk, uploaded to online galleries and such, they were framed, hung on a wall and became a permenant part of a house, of a room, and earned a place of honor. Andy's Frame has evolved from pictures in regular wall frames to a storage place on my computer to hold pictures dear to me.
