I am doing some unique small group mentorships right now. These have significantly impacted my photography and my daily shooting process and practice, all in good ways. And 2016 so far... seems ok. We will tread lightly. Keep our expectations reasonable. Have gratitude for all of the good things we have. Keep aspiring to do a little better than just survival mode. Keep trying to take better care of ourselves and each other. Take an actual vacation. Really.
