This year, 2012, was a year. What a year....
When I think of all that has transpired (babies, deaths, marriages, and moves, all in multiples) I can hardly imagine a year filled with more change. Not only for myself, but for many dear friends and family members. Others are on the cusp of change and for that I wish them increased clarity and peace. In a bold move I resurrected this little corner of the Internet and have enjoyed the creative outlet. (Your comments and guest contributions have been so appreciated.)
I imagine when the film reel of our lives plays out on that giant screen in the sky, the one phrase most oft repeated will be Wow! That sure didn't turn out at all like I planned. To which, we might receive a knowing nod and a raised eyebrow, like we are the first person to utter such an epiphany. Which is just part of the deal, right? We get to choose a few things in this life, but mostly, we love, suffer, succumb, and grow. Oh, AND capture a few images just to prove we had our brief moment on this little blue and green marble.
