Happy New Year from an Island in the North Pacific
In the winter of 1984, I delivered my personal belongings to a Seattle shipping company and then drove to SeaTac airport to catch a flight to Kodiak, Alaska, a large, kidney-shaped island in the Gulf of Alaska. A week later, I celebrated New Year’s Day with new friends.
Thirty-one years later, I’m still in Kodiak. It’s winter again and it’s dark outside. But it’s bright here in my office with my iMac where I just finished working on one of photos. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it. I couldn’t stop there though. Following the image below you’ll find four, short ‘n sweet quotations that I hope inspire you or someone you know, to start the new year with a positive attitude.
“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Your daily life is your temple and your religion.” ~Kahlil Gibran
“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” ~Psalm 90:12
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~Maya Angelou
