blue, foggy & still. light rain. be still my heart. be still our hearts. Miss D & me.

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy;
for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves;
we must die to one life before we can enter another

Anatole France

Things are changing. I'm changing ... accidentally on purpose I guess you could say.

I'm desiring changes. I'm embracing changes. I'm planning & scheming lots of changes & plenty of changes are just happening on their own because they are meant to be. This blog is changing naturally. I'm not the same person I was when I began it over four and a half years ago. I'm not the same person I was two years into it ... or three, or four.

I am incredibly grateful for the journey I've exposed here in the 1,624 posts (avec images). The word incredibly is woefully inadequate. There is no word for how grateful I am for these archives, that by some weird accidental whim one day I chose to begin documenting bits of my daily life with photos. My joy, my sorrow, my love(s) & passions. It has shown me who I am.

You may (or may not) have notice that I've removed a few favourite sidebar tidbits - friends blogs, my book list, creative/design blogs ... these are all only temporarily shelved while I do some blog housecleaning. A change I'm increasingly craving is simplicity, more spareness in my life. Blogger allows you to create separate pages that you can link to on your main page by list. Between now & the new year I plan to do a little revamping (that is if my wee particle of a technical brain can figure it all out) I'm choosing to believe that it can & will. I do love a new year after the whirl wind that has been 2011 I am thrilled to be saying Bonjour ! to 2012 with so many brand new dreams, goals, plans & wishes. I want this blog to best represent how I feel as I rush arms wide open into this new year.

So stay tuned please ... & bear with me. Merci ! & have a Happy Weekend !
