    I've just signed up - slickvic50. Uploaded just one pic of Merlin so far.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    I'm almost finished my project as well - can't believe I stuck with it! Have followed you guys back on my project.
    Don't be afraid that your life will end. Be afraid that it will never begin.

    Already started! Posted my second picture of 2012 today. My friend and I are challenging each other on FB with our 365 project so why not on the website, too?

    Post them here, too, Kirsten, and I'll try to do a poem for each! That'd challenge us both! You, too, Rachel!

    For Day one:

    Memories of rare childhood visits
    Being in a diner was a rare thing
    Reserved for road tips to nowhere
    Getting to spin on a round stool
    Legs flying (tuck 'em in as we pass the counter)
    Just a few twirls, checkerboard floor blurring
    Until someone stopped us
    But still
    We could see they were trying to hide smiles
    Remembering their own trips
    Round and round and giggling with glee

    And even the blue-haired lady
    In that booth over there
    Gave us a smile
    When she thought the folks weren't looking
    Remembering her own days
    As a fetching young gal
    Ribbon in her hair,
    Perched atop that red stool
    Hoping to catch her sweetheart's eye.
    I've Been Frosted

    Okay, Karen... Here are the three pics I've posted so far this year. I think the first one works only with the text I've written:

    Jan. 1, 2012



    A New Year...


    ...is like a blank sheet of paper that is lying before us on our desk today. White and empty, waiting to be filled with stories and pictures. Now it's up to you. Maybe you already did your first sketches today, maybe you have no idea how to start... But no matter if you already know how to fill your paper, or if you have no clue at all, no one of us can say for sure how it will be looking like at the end. Will the bright colors dominate? Will it look dull and grey? Will there be many corrections and ink spots? Or will there be nothing at all? Will life let us write our story the way we planned, or will there be someone who's scratching out the things we came up with only to dictate us what to write instead? Will there be others who support us while we progress, or do we have to walk alone? Will we learn more about ourselves and our skills while we work? So many questions, and all we can do is taking a pencil and accepting the challenge - and as we go, we may find our direction and see where this is leading us...

    May your paper sheet be filled with stories of love and joy in the end, and with cheerful pictures of happiness and light!

    Fake flowers set in muted colors
    Light gently catching the petals,
    Flattering the false blooms with soft light
    The way an aging starlet demands
    To be filmed through gauze
    So no one notices the minor imperfections
    That age brings
    I've Been Frosted

    Great thoughts, Karen! I never saw them that way!

    Ominous skies at sunset
    Bare branches silhouetted
    Against the wrong-colored sky
    Gathering clouds and yellowed light
    Portends storms a-brewing
    Hurry home, hurry home
    And be glad for warmth
    Even old radiators are comforting
    Against the threat
    Of a winter storm
    I've Been Frosted

    Oh yes, you described this perfectly! This storm was brutal, it's been hard to walk against the wind, and I'm still feeling cold. That's why I'm going to bed now, with a hot wheat pillow!
