my own version of resolutions

Week 33 of the Wednesday lists.
A few wishes and dreams; gentle plans, you might say.

Wishes and Dreams

a painting come to life
to be brave and take more pictures of strangers


great big chapeau
to work less and enjoy Sloane more


winter shadow
to be outside finding beauty every day


why I love to teach
to be patient and always remember to enjoy my students' exuberance


to give proofs of love

It's a short list, I know. But, these are the things that are important to me this year.

Sounds like a very good list to me. I love that picture of Sloane and also the one of the grass sticking up out of the snow. What a great picture. You are doing so good with that camera!

Lovely list. Hope you can achieve these dreams.

Mine is:

1) Concentrate on home/meet relatives and friends

2) Get out of the rat race; Don't sweat the small stuff

3) Enjoy nature, whenever I can

4) Volunteer more

It might be a shorter than Relyn's usual, but a good list. Especially may we all remember "to give proofs of love".

These are beautiful and important.

Regarding the photos of strangers, here's a good blog to look at if you haven't seen it already: L'Image Quotidienne:
http://limagequotidienne.blogspot.com/
She took a portrait of a different person every day for a year, and posted them with the name, home town, and some thoughts about the year.

Also thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I've been knocked out by one of the worst stomach bugs I've had in years, and am still recovering, and one of the things that's cheered me up has been reading your thoughtful comments :)

That's funny you should mention being brave--and taking more pictures of strangers. I'm the same way! I only take them if their back is to me ... or there in costume. And I just can't bring myself to ask ... sigh.

Jaime said...

Short and sweet. And again, it's filled with people love. And nature love....What a beautiful picture of shadows falling on snow. So delicate and fine. :)

Oldies, but Goodies
