New Year, Winter 2011
The photograph above was taken while visiting my partner’s sister in the Panhandle of Florida where the temperature dipped to 23 degrees Fahrenheit on two successive nights. Mind you, I’m not complaining, we could have been in the northeast with all that snow. The Video below was shot in Astoria, NYC, by Jamie Stuart, "Idiot with a Tripod."
New Year Wish
On this second day of the New Year, I’m passing on hope for an improved outlook for everyone, and I’ll leave it there, no laundry list of sufferers. One political wish for the New Year – I hope the new Republican majority in congress will have wisdom to actually say “YES” to change occasionally, and that the now Democratic minority will not take up the Republican “NO” mantra of the past two years.
I didn’t exactly stay true to my promise to avoid all electronic technology during the holiday season. On at least two occasions I responded to electronic inquiry, 1) on facebook to a friend, and 2) an e-mail concerning a bill. Never the less, I’m pleased, and I hope all those with New Year resolutions will do as well as I did the past two weeks.
