This past week or so, we’ve had 25 degree below normal temperatures and three days of snow accumulation (totaling over 12 inches). This morning’s temp was 9(f)! Too soon Winter, too soon.
A little snow on the ground, and breakfast at Madison’s Jet Room restaurant has me dreaming of flying off to warm, exotic places.
It’s been pretty dark and dreary in Madison for a while now. The lack of sunshine, and the fact that I haven’t spent much time out in nature lately has a definite affect on my psyche. As a small antidote, I was looking at some early autumn pictures I took recently, when clouds weren’t dominating the sky.
The lesson that I need to get outside on a regular basis, no matter the weather, is not new. It’s funny though, how often I need to remind myself of it.
I thought it would be fun to look back on the photos I took last year and pick out a few favorites. In the end, I suppose it’s really not about the photographs I’ve taken, but the wonders I’ve seen, and the photos that help me remember them. Here’s to more wondrous memories in 2018. Happy new year!
