As I crashed spectacularly to the ground from my mountain bike early this morning, I was reminded of a dear friend talking to me about resilience. Not that I need reminding, I have met with enough adversity in my life to know that this is a psychological trait buried deeply into my psyche. There was nothing to do, I picked myself back up, swung my leg over the cross-bar, dropped a few gears and I pushed myself up the climb, I stood over my bike and I powered up that hill. The word ‘resilience’ derives from the Latin for ‘to jump again’. Mobile Photography and Art requires resilience, there is no shortcut to sustainability and to sustain it, is a difficult task. You all pull it off, with your incredible talent, boundless enthusiasm and inventiveness. Ultimately, it is not just about individuals, it is about all of us, as one, we all affect one another, as we regulate our emotions, fulfilment is what keeps us coming back. Enjoy!
