About to step into the new year and I think, 2015 wasn’t that bad. There were a few promising moments which made it not suck so much. There were a few times when I said, this is really great being me. And there were a few moments when I was painfully aware of our collective humanity.

We all have our perspective to wrestle with. Mine is suddenly suspect as I roll into 2016 with a new word and consciousness. But that’s the next post.

Enjoy 2015’s  beautiful photos which were collected under my daily practice of the ‘year of making’ which I started at the beginning of the year. A great way to collect my pictures every month.

This post is about what I’ve captured, those irrefutable moments we shared. This year was lovely. Two year-olds aren’t really lovely and yet, she takes a wonderful photo and leaves you thinking she is… Magic

I look at these and think, there was more here than I gave life credit for. And I am grateful again to have lived it.

  2. You’re amazing. Look at all you accomplished. All that beauty and life and love…and with a two year-old imp in the house too.
