Journal Entry: Jan 02, 2021 ~ Today is the beginning of another year and the end of one that I am not sad to see go. While it could have been much worse, it has been worse for so many which makes me sad. It is not just one part of our world, but the whole world that has experienced so much unhappiness due to Covid-19. But we have started a new year with promises of a better year as immunizations have started.
While many lives have been impacted, it has also resulted in many coming to better realize what is truly important in life. Many families have developed deeper relationships due to having to slow down the non-ending rush of activities to spending more time together. The holidays have had their challenges also. While being in an older at risk group, while I appreciate the increased protection from exposure; in some ways, I also feel like I’ve been put on a shelf to pick up living at a later time.
This year, I am looking forward to never taking for granted again being able to hug my love ones, visit and share meals with family and friends, and be able to travel whenever I want … and hopefully without a mask. I am grateful even though I feel guilty as if complaining. I am looking forward to this new year of healing, love, fun times, travel, and sharing love. I am planning on living the life I imagined and hopefully you will too. ~

If you are a creative type, where do you find your inspiration? Who lights or inspires you to study in a certain direction, technique, or subject? One of my inspirations are the large flowers painted by Georgia O’Keeffe (1887 – 1986), artist and ‘Mother of American Modernism’.
“Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven’t time and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.” ~ (Georgia O’Keeffe).
No… I cannot draw or paint and I am not anywhere in comparison to O’Keeffe’s art, but I do have a camera and the desire. She inspires me to keep working on my images, including this one of my many flowers. There are always such surprises and beauty found in their structures and essence. Like many other artists, progressive improvement is the end goal throughout it all and to keep working at it, no matter your medium.
