Captured Images of the New Year

As  I have been taking down, packing away and tidying up 2010 I have had much time for reflection.

Thinking about the year just gone by as well as the bright new year ahead.

Those thoughts revolved around what to do and where to go from here.

Opportunity for growth surrounds us. New ways of thinking about what the word growth really means have been spinning inside my head.

Each year brings a fresh slate to put your mark upon.

Where, how, when. To what end? Ponder, ponder...

I am trying to make some decisions.

Of course Chloe's advice is take a nap and think about it later.

As Yogi Berra reportedly said
"When you come to the fork in the road, take it."
Yours in befuddlement, P.
Pin It!

I love both the header and the post. Exceptionally beautiful photos but of course, when one includes an animal.....Chloe takes the prize! (I'm all for naps myself)
There is so much change around us; I've been muddling the same thoughts....with no conclusions.
Here's to good answers for 2011!

Photos of a single lamp on a table always evoke a feeling of home for me, especially during the winter months when the days are so short and so dark.

That Yogi... what a character!
