Good golly.  Where does the time go?  Seriously.  It is almost the end of March.  Soon it will be officially spring  Winter here on the west coast was one of the mildest non events in years.  I have been missing my DSLR alot these past few weeks.  It was stolen last year - I have not replaced it.  It is not at the top of the list.  I have my canon I can use  I have film.  I am out of the habit.  So as much as I miss using the camera - I need to make the effort to retrain myself.  We are going on a wee bit of trip next week  I will bring my camera.  

What else is going on?  It is Lent.  I have been sitting on the outside looking in.  

We are wrapping our brains around the idea that we might be moving.  Don't I say that every couple of years?

Spring cleaning and sorting.

Some serious changes happening at work.  Things to be sorted out.  In the meantime we keep trying to publish a newspaper.

Garbage day today.

finding the balance

officially past the middle of february.  unreal. time just keeps ticking ticking ticking into the future.  i am struggling to move beyond the place i am stuck. no. i am not struggling.  i am battling.  it is an active fight.  i have things i can do.  one is to start taking photos again.  do the work.  so above, you have a few photos from New Year's Eve. taken with the canon ae-1.  film.  i have a new battery for my light meter.  little things.

i am also still employed at the newspaper.  that is a very good thing. the industry is precarious at best so i am thankful for the job.  i am also working very hard at new business venture.  this will eventually allow me more time to do some creative work.  the balance is finding the time now which inspires me to do the work which in turn will give me more time to do the art.  you see?

exercise is also key.  i am back in the 5am club.  sheesh. those dues are hard. totally works.  up at 5am -  exercise.  read a good book.  write a few thoughts.  the day goes my more smoothly. overall i more productive. sleep is essential.  so priorities have to shift.  this year is going to be different.  i can sense it in my bones. onward people.  forward.

Baking Day with mes soeurs


It is cold
I am up early.
Setting the tone for the new year.
Exercise is key.
The tree is still up.
Longer than usual for me.
I am enjoying the light.
It is a small tree and it will not take long to dismantle and dissemble.
Not in a hurry.
Not sorry to say good bye to 2014.
It has been a bit brutal.
But, it has also been good to be tested.
I am old enough now to understand that it is not WHAT happens to you
how you RESPOND to what happens to you
do you LEARN?
do you pick up the pieces and move forward
how do you regroup?
We are still here.
Focused on making 2015 a better year.
Full of TRUST 
That is my word for 2015
