happy new year

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
~T.S. Eliot

The new year inevitably always makes me think of trying new things as well as renewing ambitions.  With a 2012 list started last week, I have felt encouraged and motivated already.  A couple of items that stand out are:  1. taking photographs outside of my comfort zone (ex: indoor photographs!) and 2. give more love. Wishing each of you a joyful start to January.  Happy, Happy New Year.
