A String Around My Finger

I couldn’t let the first day of the year pass without marking it with a few thoughts and images. I am so grateful for the support of the amazing people who are in my life and excited for what the new year will bring. This is kind of like a little reminder to myself to be strong, to stay on the creative path I have chosen and to always be thankful for what I have. It’s like a string around my finger.

Strength, for whatever lies ahead

Reach, for your wildest dreams
Reflect, on what you have and what you have learned
An adventure lies ahead. Thanks for joining me!

  3. I love the strength of trees, Karen. Just something about them and how they also reach for the sky. What a perfect way to illustrate your words. i wish you the best in 2012 and can’t wait to see where your creative path leads you.

  4. Love the rootedness and reach of this post in word and image. Happy New Year Karen, nice to see you getting off to a great start!

      1. You’re welcome.

        Also- tying back to your comment on my website–I would love to have a funeral photographer, if you’re interested. I can work the time of my death around your schedule if need be.
