First Photo: Things Changed But They Didn't
Dwija is hosting a linkup over at her blog, House Unseen. The gist of it is that you should post twelve (or so) photos that highlight your year. I am not sure that I could come up with that many photos or that few photos to describe my year.
It’s not that I didn't take pictures. I did. They are mostly of gardens, trees, and flowers and of the best niece and God-daughter ever, Sara. I didn't take a lot of other people or events.
I think the First Photo pictures are representative of my 2014. Things changed but they didn't.
It’s the same tree, taken from the same location, month after month. But, the seasons changed. The sky and the weather and the other trees changed. The tree stands tall and sturdy. It changes but it doesn't.
That was my year. Things changed but they didn't.
We entertained a lot and spent a lot of time with family and with friends. Some of them we see often and other friendships were long missed and joyfully renewed.
We worked in the gardens and had a harvest to show for the effort we expended. We also dug out plants that were beaten down by the harsh winter we experienced.
I saw things in myself that I wanted to change, to improve upon. I started eating better and exercising (at least until I couldn't). I tried to watch less TV and read more. And yet there's a lot more to be done.
And that's what 2015 is for.
