Adieu 2007

The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning.
Ivy Baker Priest

A friend and I decided to go out and say good-bye to 2007 by hiking/shooting pictures. Our intention was to go up to the snow plain on the Sierra Nevadas and shoot at a state park. We made it there, but we had an unexpected opportunity to also shoot in the fog on the way in. I used my tripod more here and it did make a difference. It was an incredible day, but I'm ready for 2007 to end. It has been a year of great ups and downs in my life. I'm thankful that most of the bad came with a silver lining, but there are still ripples being felt into 2008. We'll see what they are as things happen.

No New Years resolutions, just a commitment to live every moment that the coming year brings with openness to opportunities and growth. Happy New Year to all of you. May 2008 bring an end to the Iraq War and new blessings.

In tribute to a gentle man who wrote incredible music and left us all too soon a couple of weeks ago; Dan Fogelberg, "Same Old Lang Syne":

Happy New Year to you, too! Your photograph is beautiful...peaceful but with mystery. I love it when it's foggy outside.

You mentioned to me that you are thinking of moving back to the East Coast within the year. Will you be my neighbor? We may have to meet up for a coffee and a chat then! :)
