  3. Oh may our year ahead be more gentle and forgiving than this last one AR….It is time to be able to glide quietly for a while and rest ourselves and gather up new strength for what lies ahead. I wish only wonderful things for you AR and the four leggeds and of course Hubby! Stay safe and stay warm. Sending you lots of love….VK ❤
    P.S. Finally made it out of my house two weeks later! Killer flu. So glad that is behind me 🙂

    1. I so agree with you, VK. 2018 was a rough year for many of us. A very strong wind came about last night and I would very much like to think it blew all the rough and garbage right out to leave the shiny and bright behind. I wish only the very best for you, dear friend. I am so relieved to hear you are feeling better. Happy New Year with Much Love! 💝💝💝

  5. Well the photos are mesmerizing with all the pink and the depth of field! Nice! I think I did pay attention, maybe too much here and too much there, but I sure gave it my best.
    Love to you, lots of love and light for your 2019! ❤

    1. SO happy you stopped by and enjoyed my photography, Joey. I’m experimenting, as if being squeezed from out of a tube of toothpaste. I honestly don’t know what I’m doing other then I am ending up on a toothbrush. I paid attention too this year, and ouch, some of life hurt. Other times YAY life was just so darn beautiful. Much Love to you and Happy New Year!! 💝😘💝

    Thank you for your wishes
    The best we can hope for the planet is humanism and compassion for one another, more and more.
    I wish you a happy new year 2019, to keep a health as good as possible, to spend good moments with family and friends, to continue to make beautiful photographs that make us dream.
    Thank you for your friendship
    ps: for my part, I will start this new year with a walk in the forest with my camera (whatever the weather)
    I will turn off my computer, take a shower, get dressed, put on boots and then take a bus and two subways to go for a walk.

    1. Happy New Year, Yoshimi! And I thank you for the well wishes! I too started out the New Year with a long walk in a forest. I didn’t take too many shots but the walk was wonderful! May this coming year bring many of our dreams true!! 💝💝💝

  7. Amy that was a beautiful reflective look back at 2018 in a most magical way, each verse suited each photo. And yes at times I felt a little out of focus, but I chose to add colour, and hope to continue to create and add more rainbows to 2019..
    Wishing you a Very Happy New Earth Year Amy… Hope you had a fabulous Christmas with quiet moments and plenty of walks…
    We got a few wood walks in and its our intention to keep them up daily, at least before the garden and planting season is here..
    Much love Amy.. Happy New Earth Year to you dear friend, and thank you for the wonderful support and conversations over the years.. ❤ LOVE Sue ❤

    1. Loved every word of your comment, dear Sue. My Intention is to increase the walks as well and so far I’ve been pretty good with followed-up action.

      I’m so pleased you liked this post and what it represents. 2018 was a tough year for me. What is giving me HOPE is that just lately I’ve been feeling more clear-headed and aware. It actually started yesterday as I was walking through the woods. I felt Bliss and Connection and when I did I stood in awe realizing how long it has been since I have felt that Connection. How I cherish that Connection and how missed it has been by me.

      Happy New Year to you as well! I feel the exact same way regarding our conversations. Stay strong, keep smiling, and keep walking in the woods. As you do, listen with your eyes and Heart and Mind what you would like to bring back with you to paint. BIG (((HUGS)))!!!

    1. Happy New Year, Lilka! 2018 was very challenging for me but, 2019 is starting out in a phenomenal way for me! It’s as though I have been cut free from a huge net that was keeping me trapped. (or something like that) I’m thrilled you stopped by to see what Mother is Gifting me with. I am in awe! Many Blessings to you in this New Year! 💝💝💝
