As 2012 comes to an End

Greetings for this special season.

Another year is almost over and what a year!   I invite you to scroll backwards through the previous posts and read about my year and see all the photos.   Often the postings are more photo essay than essay so it makes easy reading.

This year found the relationship with Chris expanding and growing stronger.   We managed, despite our different lifestyles, to spend a lot of time together.   It was a year of some magnificent and special travels.  It was also the year I lost my good friend, Alice.  

The year began in the Sonoran Desert with Chris joining me for New Year's weekend. And I am headed back there now.   In between there has been an African safari, a look at Dubai, a visit to Hawaii, Maine, and up the coast to Halifax, and time in the Southwest and California.   I didn't work this summer, the first time in a number of years.  I missed the role of tour guide but this year had plenty of new rewards.

I look forward to hearing about your year, your adventures, your families, even the trials and tribulations.  But I hope it was mostly a positive year for you.   And that you enjoy the holidays, be it Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza, solstice.   And that the new year holds great promises for you.

Scroll thru the older blogs to see my adventures this year.  At the end of each section you can click on "older posts" to continue.   By going back to Jan 2012 you will have covered the year.   You can click on the photos to enlarge.
