2013 – I won’t even Attempt to make a resolution…lose some weight, exercise more… as I have the excuses already lined up and waiting for a cause.

Why spend all that time and energy when I know any minute now, someone will invent a pill for that, and then won’t I feel silly?!

So, my resolutions, or shall we call them ideas for joyful living (?), or Rules to live by (no, too strict…no rules), maybe just thoughts and notions?

Anyway, here we go…

Thought #1:

Visit more small, charming villages that have lots of character and plenty of cafes…old men with berets; very polite, well-dressed children skipping (noiselessly) down the street…ok, it Doesn’t have to be out of Central Casting…but something like this:

But wait, there’s more!

Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures

My 2012 in Pictures…Seems to have been VERY quiet around here during January and February…at least photographically.  Things pick up in March and April with a trip to ENGLAND and WALES…

Great way to spend the year…traveling with friends and family!

Weekly Photo Challenge: BIG #2

The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, is, itself, a work of art, as this glistening titanium structure flows, just like the river it rests upon.  Standing sentry around its perimeter are sculptures by Jeff Koons and Louise Bourgeois that are beautiful, colorful, magical and certainly BIG.
