The Newest Year

As time passes...


and night falls on 2012...


I remember...


the highs...


and the lows...


the moments of contemplation...


and moments of pain...


objects found...


and people lost...


feeling the weight of the world...


and feeling light as a feather...


a sense of calm...


and being content...


feeling off balance...


and finding my way...


climbing to new heights...


and realizing the sky is the limit...


and throughout it all...


Thank you all for being such a big part of my world this past year. I look forward to sharing the journey together as 2012 becomes 2013. Wishing you and your families a very happy, healthy and creative 2013. May every dream come true!

Wow, Seth
These are very thought provoking images of reflection. You've touched every aspect of emotion a human could experience...which was exactly the way 2012 was all about.
It's great to be a blogger and to be able to share the inspiration with those of kindred heart and spirit.
And thank you for bringing a greater insight into the mixed media art world with 'The Pulse'. It lit the fire of creativity and the torch is still being passed on as others experience your passion and artistic muse.
Cheers to a grand New Year for you!

A simple thank you does not fully express my thoughts of your inspiring creativity.
I have learned from you and your blog participants, and moved forward in my artful creations.
But what can I say but "Thank you Seth"
