Around Here Week 52

I’m looking ahead to 2018 and want to share my choice for the new year’s motto. I see it as the only way forward.

Not your usual epitaph, but Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland isn’t your usual cemetery.

This ends a year of Around Here. I’ll still take photos in 2018 and may share some with you, but less systematically.

Happy New Year.

  1. This made me smile. I consistently talk to myself and one of the most common things I say is, “Get over yourself, Missy!” I try to get over all the things that weigh me down, including myself . . . not that I’m always very successful. I hope you (and us all) find 2018 a calmer, gentler year . . .

    • My resolve is that I not drag around resentments to gnaw on, knowing that I most likely have magnified the situations beyond all recognition. Another motto I try to follow is “If we couldn’t laugh we’d all go insane.” – Jimmy Buffet

  2. Happy and safe New Year to you and yours!

  3. I’ve enjoyed your series. I’m not sure about “getting over it.” Not sure I want to sink into complacency. At the same time, I’d sure like less stress than I’ve felt over the past year. blech… (And on a better note, I wish you a very happy and healthy new year!)

    • Many thanks for your best wishes for 2018, and right back at you. “Just get over it” is my reminder to let go of resentments and stop rehashing would have/could have/should haves. 2017 did much to shred my faith in many things. I need to look ahead at the long view.

I Love to Hear From You
