2012 is blowing in quickly here.

The wind is fierce and cold but the

sun is shining. Here it is a shot of

a new day and the new year.

I hope this day finds you at peace

with the past and looking forward to

a grand year of living in the moment.

Set your path for laughter

insight, creativity, bravery,

hope, listening, being in the


My moment right now is

cold fingers (the house is still chilly),

needing my first cup of coffee.

Listening to the wind blowing.

Getting ready to take a hike today

along the Missouri river and

capture the day in photographs.

What moment are you in right now?
