I didn’t plan on doing this 365 project…on January 1st of this year, I noticed my friend Sarah had started this project and I thought what a great idea it was. I didn’t think about what it would entail, what I would have to do…I didn’t think about whether I would follow through. I just knew I had already taken a picture for the day and I wanted to do it. I will tell you right now, I am surprised to be here on day 365. I have been uninspired and frustrated and annoyed by the whole process. I have wanted to throw in the towel many times this year. But I stuck with it, and I am so proud and happy that I did.  It has been the most difficult year of my life and this photo project has been incredibly cathartic and now serves as a journal for a year of goodbyes. This final photo is in honor of Jim, Gram and Papa. I toast them and their memories tonight and will hold 2010 close to my heart always.

Thank you to my visitors for the support, encouragement and kind words…I appreciate it more than you know.  I’m not ready to commit to another project just yet, but I certainly won’t put my camera down for long.

Lots of love and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2011!
