The road north

Do what you love and love what you do. You’ve maybe heard the phrase. It seems logical. I love photography and I am a professional photographer, so I must be just bouncing with happiness. So why is it that the day my husband said to me that we could leave our photography business and go to Alberta where the jobs are I felt a stirring of of something I have since identified as hope. And for me happiness without hope is something very close to despair.

So we are changing our lives. We’re heading North. We’re leaving the town I grew up in for a remote land I’ve never been to. We’re leaving debt and worry and home ownership for a steady income and and the unknown. Friends and family will carry on their lives without us and we go where we do not know a single person.

This is the road north.
