On a personal level this was a very intense year. Looking back I wish that I could have had a glimpse of how the year would end because it would have made certain moments more tolerable. Do you ever wish you had a crystal ball? I honestly never did. This past year was the first time that I ever thought to myself...I just want to know what happens! I surprised myself with my patience this year. I learned so much about myself and about love and about the importance of family and good friends. And, now, after the somewhat crazy year that it was, I realize that I had to go through all of that to get to where I am now.
Professionally, this year was very intense but for different reasons! I never imagined that I could do so much in one year...again, I surprised myself!
The future frightens me for the basic reasons...fear of the unknown, fear of making a mistake...but I was raised to turn that fear into excitement. The idea of entering a new decade is so thrilling. I know that this will be the most marvelous and fascinating year of my life and I wish that and so much more for you, my lovely readers.
Thank you so much for your visits, comments and encouragement this year! I can't wait to see where we go in 2010.
Happy new year!
Here's a sampling of some of my favorite images from this year from my personal archives. Every image taken and processed by me. I shot over 12,000 personal (non-commissioned) images this year, maybe more...this is a just a small selection of my favorites.
