˜”*°•.˜”*°•.˜”*°•.★★.•°*”˜.•°*”˜.•°*”˜” Have a blessed weekend!
This is a tough one to pull off, especially after a full year of all sorts of photographic highs and lows… The collection I’m sharing on this post is a taste of 2012; a sliver of the many events I captured on camera. It’s been an incredibly challenging yet empowering year for many of us and I’m glad a new year waits in the wings. My wish for 2013 is that we all follow our hearts dreams with enthusiasm, and develop the resilience to overcome all barriers when they arise. What are your wishes for next year?

Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 In Pictures…Stay Healthy
Post Hurricane Sandy, the Hudson River was slowly receding back to normal, but the shot above was of the very high water level; you could lean over and touch it. A goal I kept was to stay healthy – physically and mentally. I hiked, took lots of classes including Tae Kwon Do and ate more organic foods. I plan to stay focused on health, peaceful living and growth in 2013. What about your goals? More Below!

Haiku: Immortalized as Lady Liberty
Mine, cast in stone, struggles free
Want a piece of me?
Copper, Wrought Iron
Her old clothes… tossed casually
She wants to be free
On a painful pedestal
Dashed dreams… Hopes for peace
Why is it significant? She stands for the hope, fears and tears many immigrants live with in a new land. She is the epitome of the hopeful and the hopeless cocooned by a tough exterior that hides life’s disappointments and pain… There is opportunity in the distance. More below

“To know when to go away and when to come closer is the key to any lasting relationship.” Doménico Cieri Estrada
Haiku: Yo Slick… Blow!
shit jive is poison…
Bell Biv DeVoe – Poison (Remix)
Some jive is poison…
Endless gossip about nonsense
I say, yo slick… blow
It’s my prerogative…
Bobby Brown – My Prerogative
How we live our lives
Look, it’s our prerogative
Toe the line or… go
A friend shared a decision about a difficult relationship and all the clamoring others made. It brought back memories and prompted this haiku; with a title to make us chill out and smile or relax a bit… You know, humor helps with heavy stuff.
