I opted out of doing any end of the year, top number, favorite and most memorable posts last year this time into the new year. After 7 months at that point, it didn’t jive with the blog and the work I had done. So, that means I’ll be doing a reflection post this year where I recap my blog, the best moments in my work over the past year expressing gratitude and reliving the highs and lows–NOT.
I have traveled into a desert of photography and according to my iCloud photo stream, I haven’t been on a walkabout for picture-taking since October! Details of my personal life do give some indication where the time and energy has been redirected. It’s all good things happening and part of my bigger quest to live a balanced and diversely rich lifestyle that incorporates my many interests.
Most recently, I learned crochet and last weekend I worked on this basket for my quartz crystals:
Now that we’ve traversed well around on a brief tangent, I’m going to tell you what that means for the photoblog! Many of you are aware of spring cleaning when we open the windows, shake the rugs, clear out the old and make room for newness. Otherwise, known as spring. Many of you are also aware of the American holiday, Thanksgiving when we make long lists of gratitude for our blessed lives. On my earth walk, though, now is the time I’m feeling the need to purge and unload. Almost in the dead of winter, I feel compelled to make room. When my intuition and inspiration speak to me so clearly I am much obliged to ignore social and cultural norms and follow my bliss because I know that’s what I must do for success, happiness, and prosperity.
Typically I keep a long running folder of photographs and then I slowly pick through them as I make blog posts. As I use photos and select options, I file them in a more long term folder. My system still has photographs from January 2013 that have yet to be sorted and posted. That is not to say that I don’t like the work or that it is technically inferior in any way. It is very important that you understand these photographs are not leftovers!
The next series of posts will be a blast of photographs: an end of the year POST UP. Enjoy!
