“Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight.”~Leah LaBelle, Canadian musician
It’s the middle of the month. Right about now, resolutions are falling faster than snowflakes. Mine have been sidetracked by one nasty, lingering cold. Now is a good time to reflect on the past.
I’ve been doing a December-Photo-a-Day project since 2007. Great memories. Every year it’s amazing what I do that’s new. It’s fun to see the events that have become traditions and how those same events have changed. My Deadwood Writers Group is one of those. We have a holiday party the first week in December, and I insist–dare I say “force”?–that we do a group photo. The size of the group has grown, yet some faces are the same since that first year. My husband and I always see It’s a Wonderful Life on the big screen at Penn Theater in Plymouth. My compositions of the photos are interesting to compare.
It reminds us, especially during the busiest of seasons, to stop and appreciate what’s around you. To remember.
That is different than my Photo 365, which has turned into a year-long adventure. Here, as in other months, I was with friends, I played Yahtzee and wrote in coffee shops, I created art and I played with Zentangle. Unique to this month was that I published my third book, visited family out of town and hugged a long-time college friend, discovered new used book stores, and had a tooth filled in the Fun Room at my dentist’s new office. My husband cooked me breakfast, a Tweet of mine was favorited by a famous TV show actor. I cheered the Nittany Lions and celebrated victory from Yankee Stadium section 409 when Penn State won the Pinstripe Bowl.
What do you remember from December?
