Dark and Dreary Start
Cricket's Thoughts

It’s What You See

I woke up so excited for 365 Project Photography and 365 Project Blogging because I have desperately needed something to start feeling inspired again.

Of course, Mother Nature decided to offer me the darkest and dreariest possible day to begin this new quest.

Ya know what though?

I am okay with that.

As it turns out, it’s all a matter of what we see.

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” Henry David Thoreau

What I see is new beginnings regardless of what stands in my way this year.

      Ha! I simply stepped out on the porch and pointed my camera to what was right in front of me. It is amazing how often we miss that…

    it’s alright Cricket. We had magnificient weather here yesterday for Day 1. Clear, blue, sunny and fresh snow. So, when you have dreary, just imagine the beauty of wherever the sun went that day. And now, having said that, I will do my best to remember these words of wisdom as I look out at another overcast day. At least the snow helps brighten things up when the clouds are interferring with the sun’s work. hmm…. that was lengthy, do you suppose it counts for a blog post? ha. off to print a cubee now.
