001|365 Wishes for the New Year

I take a lot of pictures and decided to join a 365 project. Essentially the idea is to take a picture every day and post it to the group pool on Flickr. I plan to do mine as a blog as well and hope to use the images to tell a visual story about the year. I'll probably add other random posts here as well. We'll see how that goes.

I'm happy to see 2008 go. Despite my many blessings (family and friends, health, career), it was not a great year, most notably because a very close friend committed suicide. I'm happy to start this morning with a fresh slate and a positive outlook. But, the first image of my 365 project is representative to me of the new beginning we all experience every morning. New Year's is fine and all, but I don't want to wait another 364 days to feel I get another chance. So, I really hope to use this year to dream big, wish good things, make positive changes, and do my best every day. And, when I screw up, which I will, it will be fine because I know I'll get another crack at it tomorrow.

Cheers, and Happy New Year!


  1. Looking forward to the posts - something new to add to my reader!

  2. I was just reading your post for the New Year pic, & wanted to say sorry to hear about your friend Keith. I was also thinking the same thing about 2008. My cousin committed suicide on Nov 30th., Hopefully 2009 will be better...
