Learning: Reverb12

Prompt:  What did you learn?  Compare the “you” from the beginning of 2012 to the “you” that you are now. What new skills or talents have you learned or discovered this year?

  2. You know that I am a fan of all of your images, but this is one of my very favorite images that you've ever posted here. It took my breath away this morning. I agree with Marcie that the life lessons you write about are inspirational. You're one of my heroes.

  4. What amazing light on those delicate fibers. Important lessons you have learned - and are still learning, as we all are.

  5. The image is intriguing because it seems both soft and spiky -- kind of like your year, I imagine! I love the words you've written here. I think we learned a lot of the same hard lessons in 2012.

  9. This year I learned that I'm much happier being me and doing my own thing instead of trying to be the person other people want me to be and doing the things other people expect me to do.

    I also learned that if I wash my feet every evening then they don't smell at work :o)

  10. Most of your lessons are similar to mine. Life would be so boring without our animals. Digby has me experiencing so many extreme emotions in the space of a few minutes . Sheer frustration with his distructive puppy ways, disbelief at his intelligence, absolute tummy aching mirth at his antics and love because of the bond we share. Your photos are beautiful and I love your header. I'm giggling at Brainwhispers lesson re washing feet :-)
