Why I Podfaded

It has been well over a year since I published the last episode. There were many reasons and I am touching on them in this short solo episode.

One of them was that I suffered – if that is the right word – from environmental depression.


Just didn’t feel that I had to add a lot to the conversation.

And, I needed a break.

So many changes in my personal life – I will tell you later about them.

But we are back with a new episode – Episode 159.

Where are we Going with this Podcast Journey?

That is an excellent question and I am hoping that I will hear from you.

Tell me what topics are of interest to you?

Do you have a person in mind that I should interview?

It does not have to be a famous person – actually, I love to feature people that do great things and don’t necessarily have the spotlight on them.

Are you interested to be a guest on the podcast?

Let me know. Either in the comments or catch me on social media.

While we are on the topic of social media – please subscribe to our YouTube channel.


I am planning on teaching some live Yoga classes in the future and need more subscribers. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Here is one of our last podcasts

I shot exclusively for Getty for many years, but with the advent of microstock agencies, the business changed drastically, so I now shoot for 5 micro agencies as well as for Getty and for Alamy (a UK based macro stock agency.)

Many of us say that we want to change something. We dream of the move to the country – or the city as that may be. Or start our own business, travel the world or whatever strikes your fancy. But most of us do nothing about it. We want a life change but we stay in a situation which might even make us sick.

David was the Director of Student Services. The money was good, but the job never ended. The next emergency was just a phone call away. Many a time, he wanted to enjoy time with his family, only to be stuck on the phone to handle yet another emergency. Continue reading
