A New Year

News flash, it's 2010. Who knew?
We don't make new year resolutions around these parts; rather having the benefit of being married to someone of German descent, we "plan" (think highly organized). So after having a wonderful weekend of fun, reflection and a few good soaks in the hot tub, here are my plans for the coming year.
1. Participation in project 365. I will take a picture every day and post it on my photography blog. The pictures may not get edited every day but I will take a picture every day this year.
2. Shoot a wedding with my friend Julia. I don't know where or when or who even wants us, but I am going to plan this. It's on my virtual calendar, just waiting for the phone call. She is the only person I could do this with. I just don't have the personality to carry it off myself. :)
3. Plan a girls-only retreat East of the Equator. The guys can have their own retreat but I am not planning it. They can plan their own. Drop me a note if you want to be included. Space is sparse but worth it. You will need a camera, a chair and some kind of reading. No TV EOTE.
4. Shoot the moon. Really. This year is the year I make it look good.
5. Continue to dream. Enjoy the journey.
The Prophet
And a man said, "Speak to us of Self-Knowledge."
And he answered, saying:
Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.
But your ears thirst for the sound of your heart's knowledge.
You would know in words that which you have always know in thought.
You would touch with your fingers the naked body of your dreams.
And it is well you should.

Ah, dreams. Sweet, glorious, wondrous dreams. Here is to an amazing year of plans!

I LOL'ed when I read about the wedding we are going to shoot because we SO ARE going to do it!!! I definitely want to go on the East of the Equator retreat - anything involving a chair, camera & some kind of reading is where I want to be!!! I also need to figure out how you get east of the equator. I already bombed out on the 365 thing but I am now lifting a 3 lb weight daily so I can manage my camera better.

It would be nice of you plan to work, too. We'd appreciate that over at the Knollcrest farm. :-)

So funny! Julia, just keep hunting the weddings. ;) We have good GPS to get you there.

Henry, I laughed out loud - of course. Coming to work on the farm is my TOP priority. :) See you in the AM.

Trust me, the HR Maven will be at the Knollcrest farm on Monday morning. The question to ask is will there be a Boy's Weekend Retreat East of the Equator? I have some friends who need to meet Winky and buy some pulltabs at the VFW!

I was 4 days late starting my 365 project. I should have called. :-)

Thanks for all the help last weekend. I am LOVING the camera. I am LOVING the lenses (particularly the 1.8). Must have the 1.4.

You are awesome!
