Happy New Year!

I usually start the New Year in a place of tranquility, with plans for the future already in motion.

Last night I started the New Year in a car, almost home but not quite, tired and feeling like we'd stayed too long but left too soon, and not knowing whether we would be finding the house dark or light.  We didn't have any power when we'd left, and as it turned out, didn't when we arrived home seven hours later.  However, I remind my self that while I may have had many failings today, it is simply one of seven New Days I get every week and my New Year can start tomorrow.  It's all going to be okay.  

I was talking to a friend earlier today and sort of decided, subconsciously, that I'm going to attempt a Project: 365.  Though of course this year it will be 365+1.  I thought I was going to do this last January, but on Day 3 or 4, I found my pictures so far so dismal that I immediately quit.  I have a much different perspective on photography now than I did just a year ago so it will be a different experience this time.  

I feel bad that my poor little blog was neglected over the joyous season of Christmas but I'm not going to dwell on that.  What I will do is share a few pictures from the past month with you.  Hope you enjoy, and that you are off to a wonderful start on your own year!

Beautiful photos Karen! I can't wait to see your 365 photos -- I'll bet they'll be amazing -- even if they just seem ordinary to you. Happy New Year!!!

I especially liked the black and white photo of feet. It made me smile. When I was little, my cousins and I would stay with my grandma and sleep lined up like that.
