I find it so interesting, barely anyone wrote year end Christmas letters, year end review blog posts, or new year word affirmations. I am also pretty sure I am the only person still making Christmas Cards by hand. Sending off for a digital photo card doesn't count, altho much more fancy & efficient. Things that make you go, hmmm.
I don't do New Years Resolutions perse, but I do try to get things sorted out in the direction I want to live my life. A fresh (re) start. Of course this could be done at any time, but starting with new numbers for some odd reason is more inspiring.
2017 is going to be one of the busiest years of my life, and already too many things are filling up my time. Some are self inflicted, others are obligations. It doesn't help I am a liker of most everything, except brussels sprouts and coconut.
My plans are to continue blogging. It helps me relive & record life, and sort things out. I enjoy staying connected to you guys & appreciate the friendship!!
For some silly reason, I took on a 365 day photo challenge. Good idea, bad year. I've always wanted to do one. Supposedly they help a person find their style. Something I've always struggled with, even in art school. Jack of all trades, master of none. That's me.
I want to grow my photography. Being creative makes me happy. I am taking the challenge one week at a time. To give you an idea of how it's going, I just might call it good. Already. If you are interested, you can find my related challenge photos on Instagram & some on Facebook. Links on side bar. I'll share a few photos here too. I only wish I could infused more equine photos. Horses & dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Patience. Have I mentioned I need to work on this as well?
Once our horses live with us, I can only hope my equine photography will evolve. I did see our horses twice this past week and rode both days. Before the frigid cold set in. Our long distance visits just aren't conducive to taking outdoor photos, especially in winter. These days it's get them in, get on and get outta there. Koda is being very good, altho I am not asking a whole lot of him.
Way too many other plans swirling around in my overactive head to share them all on here. The most obvious and important one, is building a homestead. That just might be easier then sorting and moving without 18 years of junk! In some ways, I am looking forward to it. Kids these days (ha ha, how many times have you heard that) just don't appreciate keepsakes like we do - so why am I saving them? I thought they would mean something. I don't want so much "stuff" anymore, I want experiences. To relive and record. Memories for years to come, that don't collect dust.
This year more then others, I seek balance & efficiency, and the ability to say no...
