A sea of Holiday festivities and me feeling a bit in-between

I hope you shared a beautiful holiday with the ones you love. I’m still here, navigating my way through a sea of holiday festivities, putting in over time at the store and feeling a bit tired. I can’t believe a new year is just around the corner. This time of year is a bit melancholy for me but also a little magical. It’s that in-between state-the party is over but a new adventure is about to begin. I’m never quite sure how I feel about it.  I don’t usaully do the big noisy hoopla for NewYears. I prefer to usher in the day in a little quieter more intimate setting with time to think and hope for a special year. We have a long winter ahead and although I despise the weather, I do welcome the quiet solitude that allows me to go deep with thoughts which sometimes end up as words on paper. I’m never quite sure how I feel about the passing of another year and the anticipation of the new. Maybe it’s because I’ve had far too many cookies and my brain is still coming down from a sugar high or perhaps it’s the shear exhaustion of the holiday hype which ends in a mess of wrapping paper and dirty dishes. No matter the reason or all the details, 2010 is on its way and I’m hoping for something spectacular.

What are your thoughts about the New Year and how will you celebrate? Tell me about your holiday and share your hopes and ideas for a New Year.

The Ghosts at Grace Hotel

Here is a little fun in photos for a peaceful Wednesday. I thought I would start you out with a spiritual image I shot in early morning and then move right into the haunted hotel.

I live across town from an old campground where I occasionally go to walk and snap a few pictures. One of the dilapidated buildings on the property leaves me with some very peculiar photographs that I can’t explain. Take a peek and tell me what you think.

This is an untouched photo  from just outside the window of an old hotel taken in the early evening. What ever caused this phenomenon made it an interesting shot.

This is a shot a few feet away from the window. It’s a creepy old building and wasn’t in use at the time.  Walking through this campground is like taking a step back in time. It’s full of old cottages/shacks and there’s lots of breathing room. It’s a great place to walk and absorb a little quiet solitude.

Just an old cottage along the path. Tell me what you think about my mid week muse. Have a peaceful Wednesday.
