The Winter, The Willow and The Promise of Spring

It’s now the middle of January, and I’ve been seeing posts about the new year for a couple of weeks. They vary from the “New year, new me,” to the “New Years Projects,” with a few “New Years Goals” and the dreaded “New Years Resolutions” on the way.

I know I need to post more on my blog here, and I also need to organize the page better, along with organizing my entire photo collection. But I won’t kid myself. No amount of “New Years Resolutions” are going to allow me the time to do these things.

I would also love to really get stuck into a 365 project, but I tried it a few years ago, and ran out of steam by the middle of February. My 52 Portraits project didn’t do much better, although that one did last into the summer.

So this year, I’m going to forget Goals, Projects and Resolutions, and simply try to keep up.

I’ll try to post on here more often, I’ll try to get to finishing off the new website design, but I’m not going to stress over it. Most importantly I’m going to keep on taking photos, whether I get to share them with you or not is irrelevant.  I will still be found with my camera.

For now I’m going to look forward to some better weather. Because even though it’s mid-winter right now, the Willow in my garden is promising me that spring is coming.
