Just like everyone else, I took my 2020 plan and threw it out the window come mid-March. After managing to get 1 of the 20+ events and shoots I had on the calendar wrapped up in February, everything else ended up either cancelled or indefinitely postponed. I did manage a few trips for some commercial/client work towards the end of the summer for the brief time travel restrictions were reduced, but other than that I was very much at home. And while I did miss my little family on the road and the traveling circus that tis the EWS and World Cup series, the silver lining to this whole debacle has been the rare opportunity to slow the pace down and spend my first summer at home in nearly 10 years.
I'm left feeling extremely fortunate that I've come out of this disastrous year fairly unscathed, especially knowing that has not been the case for many many people in all of our communities. Let's hope 2021 gives everyone a bit more to be happy and positive about.
