Weekly Journal: Hurricane, Tired Brain and a Tiny Camera

I have returned! I have a new camera, new laptop, new photo editor, and I what I hope is new inspiration. There are quite a few posts that have been hanging out in my drafts, waiting around for me to figure out what to say about them so those should be appearing soon. Stay tuned!
