Saying "YES" to Life

Photo: Levi Sim, SDesigns Photography

And here we are, after what was a fantastic summer - although I do wish that I had written more, as there were many thoughts and this photo. While this story could be categorized in the "urban legend" file, it's actually true: I was walking to a chamber music concert and spotted by Levi Sim, a photographer currently living in Logan, Utah. Of course we spoke, he took some pictures on the spot, and the invited me to come and pose for his class - with the violin.

I agreed to this and visited his class the following Monday. Doing so made for a very tight schedule as the dress rehearsal for a performance of the Verdi Requiem took place thirty minutes after the class ended, but sometimes life throws opportunities in your lap and one must always say "yes" to life.

Besides sitting for THIRTEEN photographers at once (?!), the summer was quite memorable, and there will be more on that in the coming days.
