A Look Back

The numbers on the calendar have changed. It's a time for retrospection and a time to change perspective. Most of us review the year, consider the future, make resolutions so it occurred to me to do the same. Here's a look back at the year just past on this blog for favorite images and posts. These are my favorites.
