semi-final

I apologize for going so long without letting those who aren't nearby or closest to me know what is going on. Tyson and I broke up in mid-June, a few days after my graduation ceremony. There are many reasons why this happened, none of which I quite feel like going into. The unfortunate result of this was that I very much wanted to separate myself from my documentary project on small-housers (and this blog) once separated from what was to be our small house. In the process, I quite unconsciously divorced myself from my photography as well. I am doing very well now, still living in Santa Cruz, and am teaching English in San Jose, having learned during grad school how much I love to teach.

My new plans for the future center around getting more teaching experience and a terminal degree so that I can work at the college level. I also hope to get involved with (or start) a non-profit that teaches youth to document their own experiences and lives through photography and/or poetry. At some point in the future, probably within the next few months, I will relaunch my photography website with photos from my project. I will definitely update readers here on that once it happens. Until then, I hope that you are all doing well. And I wanted you to know that I am.

Leaving you with a photo from Steph's lovely Portland marina:

I'm sorry to hear you won't be pursuing the small lifestyle documentary and blog. I hope you will reconsider but you need to take care of you...

It's saddening that you and Steph have both gone AWOL ... sorry to hear of the emotional disasters.

Never give up on photography -- just choose a different topic/subject.

Dear Fellow Tiny House Fans,

You're all invited to a free virtual conference on Tiny Houses, VirtualTinyHouseCon #2, on Saturday, Nov. 13 from 8-9 pm Eastern Time. The plan is to hold it weekly at this time, starting now. I hope you can make it! Anyone from around the world can be there - think of all the awesome people you'll meet. I'll be contacting as many people as I can and any help you feel you can provide in spreading the word is very much appreciated. It's been mentioned to me a number of times that people feel they need some advanced notice, so that might be something to keep in mind if you put up a blog post.

I have an announcement post up here: http://towardsabettertinyhouse.wordpress.com/2010/11/06/virtualtinyhousecon-2-is-scheduled-for-nov-13-8-to-9-pm-eastern-time-zone/

All the best,
Gregor Folouk
