My wife and I are currently discussing plans of leaving Indianapolis and moving back to the west coast. As a photographer, there seems to me more opportunity in Portland than I can ever carve out for myself here. There are definitely more people interested in the arts and more competition.
There are parts of this move that make me extremely nervous and other parts that have me excited. I think as one gets older, you start to look for certainties that may or may not exist. When I was 18 there was no fear in living out of my car; But now, that adventure is more of a headache. Either way, this move is going to happen; it is just a matter of logistics.
