My friends arrived from Portland yesterday and we had a leisurely breakfast this morning looking out at a light snow falling and winter day. Photography was the topic of discussion and the enjoyment of the creative process. My goal is to live in the moment and respond to the world around me. It is a luxury to be following my passion. My room here is comfortable with a large print of storks flying and a view over the Limmat River just below my window. I am reviewing images from the past three days and am really enjoying the quiet and time to relax and feel the pace of this city. I have really enjoyed my time here and we leave the hotel at noon to take a train to the city of Bern for one night.
