The latest issue of Shenandoah Living Magazine hit the shelves last week and I was disappointed. I had contributed a bridge essay of county bridges, with pictures, of course, but it got cut, and wasn’t included. It was quite a blow to my ego. But I am a big girl and life goes on. I sold a book of county photographs recently, and my picture at Tippy’s sold. I don’t measure my success by sales. I’d be a pretty dim light if I did. I measure my success by how happy I am. I’m pretty happy. But sometimes I have to stop and remind myself.
