The neighborhood is rich of creepy spots, especially close to the railway. This evening I had some free time, so I walked out the dog and did a little exploration of the area. It was a long time since last time I had a similar walk, it was summer and it got dark solely at night, when everything was shut and few people were around. But now it gets dark already in the afternoon, with all the commercial activities running, the shops opened, and a lot of people around, enough for the atmosphere to feel completely different (and much safer).
I’m not having much success in my quest for a sponsor, I guess (hope) it’s because of the timing (a lot of people are out on holidays). I registered to Linkedin today (may you want to add me). I also added a small icon on the top right of my website, it took a bit of CSS coding but nothing too hard. But I still have to fill a lot of the information. I had previously registered on Linkedin, but that time I was a “Biomedical Engineer”. Today I’m “just” a “Photogrpaher”. It’s way more than a keyword change…
What else, the city runs slowly with many of its inhabitants out for the holiday, it took me half of the usual time to get to my office, I could park right in front of the gate, and I counted five to six people in it. Oh, my office was empty and chilly too. I returned home earlier than usual, and used the little spare time to have a longer walk with my dog, to explore the area, and to find this creepy spot.
Life feels somehow suspended, I guess it’s the waiting for the new year to start, with all it’s promises and goals. I’m taking a big breath. I’m ready to jump into it.
