When things fall into place...

I just got the most amazing news. My thesis supervisor, who I sent a link to my flickr account, returned a call to me and suggested that I consider publishing a book with my photos and corresponding writing as my thesis.

With one phone call, he has validated my photographic ambitions and declared that my documentary/photojournalistic style is worthy of a university thesis. He suggested that I use three main themes and weave the photos through them because they are channels of communication,saying even more than mere words.

It will be the very first time that my department (which unfortunately does not offer a photojournalism major) would be rolling out a photographic thesis.

It is just amazing. Totally and completely amazing how the stars are aligned and the universe is colluding to make me shine doing the things I was meant to do.

On top of all that, for the very first time today, I mentioned the name of my boss to my step mother. She shrieked. He was her batch mate in college in Jamaica some decades ago, of whom she has glowing recollections. This augers well for the impending discussion about early release from my contract. Of course I will start the discourse with a bit of nostaligia. There is nothing like a trip dowm memory lane to trigger euphoria. He also wants a job in Dubai (he met ESC and knows he is based there). Two strikes. My prayers and yours will make three.

I am still in utter awe, about the new thesis and how all things really and truly and sincerely and prophetically work together for good.

There is such purpose and divine order in my life, even with the struggles, that I know, without doubt, that my steps are directed on a higher plane.
