Default Unpredictable Life

Last May 5th I started a thread about the "Nikon DSRL forum" and I was hopping to bring more action and energy to it posting pictures and exchanging experiences and photographic best practices.

I was planning to have small trips with my camera to document it and share it in this site, but life is unpredictable and sometimes you can't make plans for the future.

Two weeks ago my wife had an accident and she broke some bones of her face, cheekbone and orbital plate, she had surgery and she is now in a slow recovery.

Yesterday my Dr. told me that I have a plantar fasciitis on my feets and tendonitis on my left ankle and my two hands, I can't do my walks in the city and the beach doing what I like to do "taking pictures".

I had plans to go next month to Nevada and Arizona to visit some National Parks with my wife but looks like it will be impossible to accomplish.

The problems I motioned and my work are keeping me away from this forum but I'm taking actions to bring my life to normality.

Life is unpredictable and some times it brings surprises to you but I'm not an easy guy, I'm and only 45 years old and this life doesn't know that I'm a fighter and I can't give up so easily.

I will be out of this forum for some weeks but I'll be back with great pictures and stories to share with you guys.

See you soon.

Marcelo

So sorry to hear of your troubles... My thoughts go out to your wife that she
recover quickly and to you as well that you overcome your challenges...

I've been dealing with some health and financial problems myself for the better
part of the last two years so I am somewhat sympathetic to your situation but
things are getting better and I hope, in time, they will for you and your wife too...

Stay strong, Marcelo...! Deal with what life has dealt you and come back when
you can...

Again, my best thoughts to you and your's...

Marcelo, God bless you and your wife. I will be among those praying for the two of you. I don't frequent the Nikon forum, but I have seen some of your work. Come back when you are able. We will be here.
