No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.
If you do not sow in the spring, you will not reap in the autumn.

A photograph is usually looked at - seldom looked into.
A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
~All quotes by the brilliant Ansel Adams

Having dabbled with the One Little Word project that I came across from Ali Edwards, I struggled to find one for 2012. Nothing seemed to fit quite right. The more I thought the more this word circled around me. It embraced me. It whispered that this is my word.

This morning I woke to a city clouded in a misty fog. Rather fitting for me given that I was up much later than I had intended doing things that were less than enjoyable. Perhaps peculiar but sometimes, I see clearest amid the fog. It forces me to focus on the right here and now. I can wonder what is in the grey space beyond where my sight can see but can't do much more than prepare for what it will reveal once I reach that point.
A bit like life in general, I'd say. I can ready myself for any fathomable thought but it's only in the here and now that I can be. The past is filled with memories that soften around the edges as time goes on and then fade to grey in the mist. The future radiates hopes and dreams of what will be. It, too, is a bit grey and certainly unknown. But right now, in this this moment, in this tangible space where my eyes can focus, is where my heart drums its beat.
February, welcome. You knocked gently on my open door politely waiting for me to invite you in and I thank you for that.
