Some of you may remember a post from November called Gifts, where I hinted that a major life decision had been made (it’s a post I’m particularly proud of, so please check it out if you have time). I’m finally able to reveal what that big decision is, and it will explain while I’ve not been as active on WP this week.
Yes! I’m running for a seat in the Virginia House of Delegates, District 12!
I’ve contemplated running for years, from back in my days serving on Radford City Council, and I am excited about this new endeavor. The election is not until November so this will be a year long journey. I plan to travel to events on my bike when able and to photo-document the journey as well.
Many of you already know Joe from three different blogs on WordPress – The Visual Chronicle, X-Tended Vision, and Monochromia. Joe has adapted a few of his photos, and one of mine so far, to use on my campaign website and FB page. Aren’t they fun?
I’m hoping that Joe will be able to find time to add this logo to more of my photos from around District 12 as the campaign progresses. How lucky am I to have Joe on my team?
It’s going to be a wild ride and I’m looking forward to it! Motorcycle rides and photography will remain the dominant focus of my blog. Yet truly, this journey is more of Life on the Bike and Other Fab Things.
