I had never done a book reading before (reading out loud in 10th grade English class would perhaps be the last time I read a book out loud to others) much less a book signing. So it was all just a little lot bit daunting.

Thank you to all for coming and for your support!
On Monday I left San Diego County and headed back towards Palm Desert for the exhibition "Portraits of the Desert". I have really been looking forward to this exhibition. Back already in 2010 I applied to the Palm Desert Community Gallery hoping to have the chance to show my then Salton Sea photographs of the wetlands, landscapes and people using the sea for recreational purposes. I was in the UK at the time and duly sent off my application form and CD with images on time (ok... just in time) and waited. And waited some more. And more. And then some. And started getting discouraged. Then about three months later, I received an email saying that the art gallery manager had just received my application form and cd from another department. The package had been sitting unopened for this time in another office somewhere and so my application never had the chance to be viewed by the judges for inclusion in the show. Of course this isn't to say that I would have definately gotten into the show, but I had missed the boat.It wasn't meant to be.
