chuckfrance Wow!! I was looking for pajama pants and I found these tonight. I can literally walk out of them! What a difference 6 months has made. I didn't feel real good about myself and could care less about my health. More than likely headed to diabetes, heart problems or both. I'm so absolutely grateful, #happy and blessed. May you all have much #love, health and happiness this year. #gratitude #thankful #pic #newyear #2015 3w

chuckfrance Change is a very powerful thing.

I started my job here at The University of Kansas on my birthday, September 10th, a little over six years ago. At the time I was freelancing but there were changes happening in my life, I was going thru an upheaval. I went thru a divorce, fell in love with someone that later passed away and along the way met some truly amazing people. For those of you still in my life, I thank you and for those of you not here, I thank you. Some changes were happy ones, while others could be described as sad, or as I would say, challenging but full of reward and love. A rollercoaster for sure. One thing over the years I could always count on to keep stability in my life was my job at Kansas.

So, I started this career at KU in a time of flux but over the years I have had the honor of meeting some wonderful people. I watched students come and go, professors do research/education that changes lives and changes the world and met staff, that without them, this campus would not run smoothly nor would it exist. I believe no job is too small and no job is too big. No one job is more important than another, we're all in this life together. I've had co-workers, directly in this office, that have been supportive, loving and kind. Those of you that are no longer in this office....I miss you very much and thank you for allowing me to work with you over the years. I was HONORED to work with you.

I have many photographers I admire but I leave you with a quote from one of my favorites, David Alan Harvey: "Don't shoot what it looks like, shoot what it feels like." I hope, in some small way, my work made you feel.

It was privilege to work with all of you and a privilege to work for The University of Kansas. Rock Chalk Jayhawk....THANK YOU!! #exploreku #kansas #photooftheday #love #gratitude
