On New Years Day I woke up early, made my way down to the beach in Carmel, California and sat down. I took my shoes off and waded out into the water, washed my face in the cold Pacific and went back up to my family. I felt refreshed. 2012 was an amazing year. I’ve learned to live more in the moment than I used to. I appreciate the smaller things and worry less about five year plans and doing the right thing. I do what makes sense to me there and then and make that my life plan. Along the way I see patterns, but I never let them guide me, I just see them as markers I leave behind. Oh, so that’s what I’m doing. Interesting. I’ve collected some photos from my 2012, not a best of in any way, just moments from the year, a selected few, random and out of order. Maybe there’s a pattern there, but I really don’t care. It was a good year and I lived it to the best of my capacity. Here’s to yesterday, here’s to the future, but most importantly – here’s to today. Let’s drink from the cup we have in front of us.
