Into Season Four

Soon winter will be here. I mean the snow has fallen and it's cold, but the calendar will officially mark the Solstice. Again. Christmas. Then a new year will begin. Again. Have I done anything meaningful this year? What will the future bring? How will my interaction with this world change? What will I see next, or who, or how? Who will inspire, or disappoint? Where will I travel and with whom? Will Kodak continue production of the only 400 ISO color neg in a 4x5 sheet? Doesn't look good. Transitional thoughts. Not much happens here in the winter. It's a time for reflection. Welcome.

Lake Coeur d'Alene, ID . 2007

It's kind of like standing at the water's edge. How will you enter? Crawl straight over the rocks? Find an easy trail and go around? I think I'll jump thanks.
