Happy New Year everyone and thank you for all your visits and comments in 2008!
It's so hard to pick a photo to be the best of a whole year, but we chose this picture from Ystad Daily Photo. It's a beautiful motive which reminds us of the spring that we long for. The road reminds us of what lies ahead of us; which we do not yet know what is. The poem that Fredrik added beneath the photo is a lovely one which we think is such a fitting way to welcome the new year.
THE ROAD NOT TAKEN
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
We have run this blog for quite a while, and feel like we need a break to do other things. We will still post photos, but not as often as before. Hopefully you will continue to visit us from time to time. :-)
