Looking Ahead


Photo: December 31, 2016

I would like to dedicate this year of blogging to Allanah King who challenged me to participate in "a photo a day" for 2016. It has been a challenging year for her and I have followed her photos through which she shared her trials and tribulations as well as her ever positive outlook. So to Alanna - I wish you the best of health and a happy 2017. But no 365 this year!

New Year's Eve is a night traditionally associated with resolutions. I prefer to think in terms of goals. Resolutions seem so all or nothing - you succeed or fail to keep them. A goal is meant to be revisited, tweaked - it is a journey which can have detours, ups and downs and even once reached is only a reason to set a new goal.

So I continue on my journey with the goals of
  • keep working at healthy eating
  • play more music
  • walk or exercise daily
  • make time for friends
  • make time for photography and writing (but not a daily assignment!)
  • And take time - to be in the moment


Can I say I have kept resolutions over the years? No. But if I look over the years, I have certainly moved on my way to attaining goals.


  1. Congrats on your goals and your thoughtful reflection!

    I'm happy to see your still posting this year, even if not daily. :)

  2. Thank you so much for your continued inspiration throughout the year. I found the daily photo a great way to keep people who cared about me in the loop as to where I was and how I was going without having to repeat myself when I was tired and over it all.

    I have four more treatments to go and then I can hopefully move on and put 2016 properly behind me.

    Take care
