so for 2016 i have lots of the same old intentions which i know by mid january will soon fade away. the kids are growing up and life is speeding past – i managed to photograph a couple of weddings, impending births and sadly witness the loss of a friend who was far too young to die – these important events in one’s life made me realise that what is really important is your health, family and happiness. so here are a few things that i will be bearing in mind….
generosity of thought
kindness of heart
patience of mind
selflessness in spirit
a little phrase that really resonates – friendship isn’t about who you have known the longest – it’s about those who came and never left your side ….
and specifically with my own family, calm not anger, praise not criticise, speak not shout
wishing you all a joyous and healthy 2016!
after all the hard work of shopping, wrapping, preparing and cleaning – this is how i spent my new years day – sat on the sofa in front of the tv wrapped in a blanket.
