Flooded

Digging for gold! This post is my own contribution to the Buried Treasure collaboration. Links to each and every participating artist can be found in the previous post on my blog.




My post for the Buried Treasure collaboration is a modification of a blog post that I had posted on New Year's Eve in both 2008 and 2009. So I guess three times is a charm. While going through all my old posts to chose one for today, I was flooded with so many memories. It was as if the tape was playing in reverse. This post captures it all...

As night falls...



I remember the positives...



and the negatives...



the highs...



and the lows...



the moments of contemplation...



and moments of pain...



feeling calm...



and feeling alive...



climbing to new heights...



and being heard...



taking a chance...



and realizing the sky is the limit...



and throughout it all...

'art' is worth a thousand words -- you nailed it -- a complex idea can be conveyed with just a few still images.....

That's a great one Seth. I love new year's and the feeling of having a whole pile of adventure and promise laid out before me. I like shaking off the old, tucking the good memories away for safe keeping and stepping boldly into the new. This post perfectly celebrates this ritual.
