Friday night is date night. I have been hibernating at home lately with all the snow and cold (it was -24C with a windchill of -36C this morning and snowing).
I have spent a lot of time inside looking out. Hubby is brave enough to go out in the snow, but I am a snow-chicken and hate being on the roads after a snow. But after running out of decaf coffee today and having too much energy, I decided that it was time for me to get out! We drove DD#2 to gymnastics and ended up here at Starbucks. I just had a tea as I have had enough coffee for today. We have a few more days of really cold weather before it warms up to "normal" which is about -6C at this time of year.
Instead of making New Year's resolutions this year that never really last long, I have decided to come up with one word to focus on this year. The first word that came to me was CREATE. This year I want to focus on creating things with my photography and in my life. Dictionary.com defines create as:
1.to cause to come into being, as something unique that would not naturally evolve or that is not made by ordinary processes.
2.to evolve from one's own thought or imagination, as a work of art or an invention.
6.to cause to happen; bring about; arrange, as by intention or design: to create a revolution; to create an opportunity to ask for a raise.
7.to do something creative or constructive.
I think I will try to focus on making something unique come to being. Something creative and constructive that evolves from my imagination. I will try to document some of my creative process here.
