Thought I’d pop in and wish you all a very belated Happy New Year before January gets away from me and we’re celebrating Cupid and, in the U.S. at least, a vague holiday dedicated to no particular president. It’s been non-stop activity for me this month but I did manage to take a spontaneous drive down to the desert today and it did me a world of good to just poke around and take a few photos, something I hadn’t done in a while. Unusual plant life, decay and dilapidation, and lots of rusty junk…I was definitely in my happy zone. I’ll post more shots over the next several days. Until then, sweet dreams, peeps!
A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has spent time here in my little corner of the Internet this year. Thanks, also, to my subscribers for putting up with this last-minute barrage of posts. I appreciate you sticking with me!
I’ll be taking a little break from the blogosphere but will return to a regular, if less demanding, posting schedule soon.
Wishing you all much opportunity, growth and fulfillment in 2015.
Happy New Year!

Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart. She withers the plant down to the root that she may grow it up again fairer and stronger. She calls her family together within her inmost home to prepare them for being scattered abroad upon the face of the earth.
~ Hugh Macmillan, “Rejuvenescence,” The Ministry of Nature, 1871
