It's a Brand New Day

A Brand New Year!


I pray that you all will have an exciting and prosperous year ahead.

Take time to smell the roses. Bask for just a moment, every day, in the beauty that is Planet Earth.
Spend time with those you love and tell them you love them...every chance you get.
Never take anything or anyone for granted.
Every day, every moment, every breath is a precious gift.
Life is fleeting...

One of the most profound quotes I've read in a long time
comes from the words of David duChemin;
at the pixelatedimage.com
I'd like to share it with you here.

"You have one brief, beautiful, unique life to live, and only a limited handful of matches with which to set your world ablaze. Don’t you dare waste them."

You can read his "Resolution or Resolve" post, in it's entirety here;

It's an excellent read.
something to think about going into A Brand New Year...
So............

Happy New Year!

I just moved across the Country last month
and I don't currently have quick access to all my photographs from 2011,
I'm going to share a couple of old photos, and some new,
never seen before, photographs from the last two months of 2011.

The first one is most precious to me....
Taken in Spring of 09
I surely miss this aerodynamic tail wagging.
You have to look closely to see it. It's moving so fast it's all but invisible.
We used to jokingly call this rapid fire whip, a deadly weapon.
Though if in his exuberance, it slapped you on your bare leg, you knew it was no joke.

I'm pretty sure someone he loved very much was coming up the walk...
the whip was whipping and the pittie butt was wiggling.
