new year reflection...


spent a wonderful christmas at home in colorado with my family and friends... so fortunate to have experienced a beautiful snowfall while i was there... but more important... lots of love and visits with amazing people whom i care dearly for...

the new year was spent with wonderful friends in tremendous rainstorms at the beach...so cozy and fun.
we rang in the new year (have not been able to stay up in years!) but this holiday was different somehow... the new year will be an exciting one in many ways... as it unfolds each day with new hope and amazing optimism...

i wish everyone many special blessings in 2010...

the photo shows the ocean on one of the few clear days... the roar of the waves was intoxicating...

another brilliant photograph by john granen.

There is no better place to reflect than by the sea ... I could never live anywhere else -- although your white Christmas sounds postcard perfect, and love and family is everything.
Happy, happy New Year, Pam. Thank you for all of the inspiration and beauty you bring. I can't wait to see what comes this year!

Is that a shot Cannon Beach at the entrance next to Ocean Lodge? I can't imagine my expert beach eye would deceive me, but without haystack in sight I could be wrong. Sounds like a lovely new years!
