  No clear picture



And so this illusion of an ending and a new beginning. This sudden shuffling of fuzzy everydayness into arbitrary clear distinctions. Like this photo: all the nuance of rosy brick buildings and green gardens on a winter afternoon cast by a moment's trick of the low sunlight into an illusion of sharp relief, which satisfies only aesthetically. No endings, really. No beginnings. No clear picture. Thank goodness.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Jean!
 
I agree with you, it's such an arbitrary distinction, today is one year, tomorrow another. And yet, and yet, many cultures world-wide have an important festival at this time, and it is the rebirth of the light even as we go into the coldest, darkest months.

Beautiful writing, beautiful photograph. I want to say, keep blooming your wild Winter blossoms, but don't know if that's apropos.

Have a wonderful evening in all the ways that are most meaningful to you, and may 2006 see the realization of long-held dreams...

Happy New Year's, love Brenda xo
 
You are simply beautiful. Happy New Year, Jean.
