How Do You Find Focus?





At the start of every new year, I choose a word (or three) to represent the next twelve months; less a resolution, more an intention. It’s already January 11, and I have a lot of words swirling around my mind, but haven’t been able to settle on three, let alone one. Because New Year’s Resolutions tend to fall by the wayside by the time February rolls around, there is a new trend for people to choose a single resolution every month — so twelve resolutions in the course of a year, but the only commitment is to keep them for just thirty days. It could be a nice way to try on small habits and add to the ones that work.

The best thing to do I’ve found when I have a head swirling with ideas is to get outside and walk. Below, you’ll see a number of images from winter walks in my neighborhood on the Connecticut shore.

















Thank you for reading!

All photographs are taken by me, unless I have noted otherwise in the caption. I used my Canon 5D III for these shore photos.

Many of the photographs you see in my blog posts are for sale in my online store. You might just be looking for some color or black and white images for your walls. Or think about gift giving.

    Thanks Nancy. I love the idea of choosing words instead of specific resolutions. And your photos are inspiring and gorgeous! What a lovely way to start my day.

    • Hi Karen, I think my word this year might be gratitude, always a good word to step into each day, right? See you soon!

    • Tara Tara Tara, thank you so much. I love seeing your work in my inbox ⭐️! I know you are going to DC, wonderful. I’ll be in NYC marching because I have a client I’m putting on TV that week all in prep for the inauguration week.
