Start of a New Year

The past few months have been quite a ride. Writing on this blog has been quite difficult, as I’ve found that emotions running high and dry are not the best conditions to squeeze out quality content.

The holidays have come and gone. Life’s chapters have come and gone. As with the more tragic chapters of any story, it seems more fitting to just close these chapters and start fresh.

And this is what I’m doing today.

Today started off on the wrong foot again. But I will always remain hopeful that perhaps I’m just coasting through a bad period in my life, and that things will start looking up again.

Upon arriving at work this morning, I opted to indulge my stormy mood and feast my eyes on visual inspirations that fed the hurricanes in my heart. These were the beautiful pictures I found on the Web taken by artful individuals.

At the end of it all, they may seem dark, foreboding and morose… but it does remind me that in the greater scheme of things, I am but one tiny piece that makes up the whole of this world. On the bright side, that means there’s a bigger force surrounding the universe that’s looking out for me. So hope always remains.

Meanwhile, I’m sharing with you the best of stormy weather as found on Google Images. Enjoy, and Happy 2011!
