OK, I'm a tad tardy with this snap. Shot in mid-April, I'm thinking, long about when my Bradford Pear was fixin' to bloom. I've been going thru my photo folders all week, doing some Spring cleaning. I don't believe I've ever showcased this massive tree when it's on the imminent edge of blossoming.
This shot seems apropos for a number of reasons.
I turn the page to a new chapter in my life in less than 2 weeks (about time, correctamundo?) & Summer is the season of new growth for yours truly. I'll have one chica home for 3 months; the other will be ducking in and out, since she's actually got a "grownup" job this summer. I'll be able not only to get in touch with myself, but with La Familia Scribe, as well.
I'll have more time to read, to cook, to putter around in the yard. Travel is always one of my priorities during my Summer Solstice. I'm going to clean out my computer files, reorganize my closet. Heck, I've even made some noise about purging the basement of the flotsam & jetsam that's been piling up down there over the years.
On the professional development front, I don't think I'll do too much, school-wise, but I plan to invest in some personal growth activities. I'm in my 3rd year of blogging. I'd like to learn some new tricks, compose some killer posts, snap a few more memorable shots.
And I plan to peruse the close to 800 posts I've written since March 31, 2008. Maybe there's something worthwhile there. Maybe I'll put some of my favorite rants in a collection of some sort. I don't know much about Ebooks, but I could see something from that genre in my future.
Trouble is, I'm not much good at critiquing my own work. And I've never been apt at conjuring catchy titles.
