2019 is almost upon us...looking back....
In 2018... something that I enjoyed so much was photographing FIELDS!!
This may seem simple to some, but I guess that is what pleasure often is, the simple things in life.
The moments where you are not stressed and experiencing something normal and good.
It could be talking to a friend, it could be shopping, it could be walking in the countryside.
The Dutch have a word called "Gezellig." The Danish have a word called "Hygge." They both mean, a sense of well being and inner joy experienced from the simple things in life.
The bible says "The joy of the Lord is your strength. I seriously think we can deliberately manoeuvre our circumstances to put moments of joy in our life.
These times make us stronger and give us a greater appreciation of life.
Looking ahead I think the trend for 2019 will be even more gezellig more hygge, more simplicity as people search for meaning from a fast and busy world. I believe we will get better at streamlining our lives and doing the things that matter the most to us.
Thank you for taking time out of your day to read my blogs this year. I truly appreciate and value your time and contribution to my world, and I hope in some small way it has brightened your world.
See you in 2019.
