New Years resolution

Lake Catharabah New Years Eve
Stay calm. Let go lightly. Try not to become too attached to things.

I don't do New Year's resolutions. This one is a late entry (4 January) and follows my accidentally deleting all the photos I took over the last week except this sole survivor.

I could wax lyrical about their beauty and the way they captured the spirit of fresh beginnings. There were photos of one year old Riley who captured our hearts as she took her first steps and gazed into our eyes unblinking -  innocence personified.

There were some accidental masterpieces which were simply studies in slow shutter speed of wild fluorescent colours - the wrist and head bands everyone was wearing down by the lake where the local band was playing. You get the picture.

As I embrace my seventh decade perhaps this experience has something to teach me. One is never to old. For almost anything.

So as I take a deep breath and exhale slowly while meditating on the life I am meant to lead I wish you, the world, a fulfilling and positive 2013.

Wise words (your opening sentence) maybe I should adopt that as my mantra.
