A Happy New Year

It’s New Year’s Eve … a time of reflection and celebration. I had planned on a retrospective of some of my favorite photos for this year, many of which you won’t have seen. However, Mother Nature gave us something of a gift – snow and hoar frost combined with very Canadian dry temperatures below freezing.

My boots squeak as I take my morning walk; my nose tingles slightly with cold, my cheeks are rosy and the most amazing sparkles catch my eye. You never know how much you miss something, until you have it after a long period of absence.

Tomorrow, it will be 2015. There will be change, of mind, of heart, of direction. Change welcomes so many guises. A few days of true winter — they clear the mind, hearten the spirit — bring me back to myself, my roots, just in time to cross the threshold of the new year.

Thank you to all of you who have followed me over the past couple of years and to those who joined us this past year. Today, I share not only my photographs, but the impressions of people over time as they looked out upon their winters. I look forward to sharing more of what this Canuck’s eyes view on this journey called life.

Happy New Year.
