2016 is a strange development, despite the awareness we supposedly had of its impending arrival. I suppose we are all too lost in the concept of busyness to remember that years have expiration dates. It's funny, but the new year is like the arrival of a house guest we forgot we invited. My mind is left shocked at the doorway, wondering what on earth I have to serve this house guest.
The last update to this blog was almost a year ago, and yet it could just as well have been last week. Despite that feeling, many things occurred between then and now, many things that could have easily been the stuff of blog posts, but will now be distilled into a handful of photographs I share below that are in some way meant to encapsulate the places I went. At least a few of the places, that is-including photos from two different trips to England and a lovely holiday to Prince Edward Island, a piece of floating land as charming as Lucy Maud Montgomery led us to believe in her Anne of Green Gables stories. I have more photographs to show for in 2015 than words, but deep down I hope 2016 will be different.
