    Thanks ever so much.
    You are all loyal readers and I so appreciate your support and interest.

    In response to Tina, my 2011 goals:

    1. One post of week if I’m in GR and not traveling. Two (or more) if on the road, visiting some place of interest. Actually search out, see, enjoy and share interesting destinations.
    2. Travel more. See the world.
    3. Constantly work on writing craft.
    4. Learn more about my camera and how to shoot captivating photos.

    Have enjoyed all of your posts this past year and have forwarded many on to family and friends. I look forward to receiving the latest posts and know I will read about something I will then long to see, experience or learn about a little bit more. Somehow I knew when I opened this up today that I would see a new banner picture; beautiful!
