This year, I hope to keep growing and improving in my creative pursuits, including more photo-taking, more writing (and hopefully song-writing), and more blog posts! Just wish there were more hours in a day so that I could fit everything in, with time to relax and sleep as well. I want to visit more places and see new sights, capture the fleeting moments there, and translate them as best as I can into images and words. I know this year will be warm and colorfully glowing on the spectrum of years passed so far in my life. I don't know why, but there's just a feeling.
In 2012, I started this blog, paint with stars, and with it rekindled my passion for photography. Motivated by the thought of being able to share my pieces with you all, I stepped out beyond my daily routine and have produced many photos and entries that have added up over the past year. I'm really looking forward to further developing my photography skills this year.
Thank you so much to all of you who continue to read and support this blog, and especially those who take the time to leave comments!
Personally, I know how it feels to be a silent reader and simply move on to the next website without clicking the comment link, but it also leaves such a lovely warm feeling with the writer of the blog, to hear the thoughts of their readers. That's another thing I hope to accomplish this year - become more active with commenting and reaching out to the blogs that I follow and love. There are so many wonderful works out there, and it's very inspiring to see them.
Finally, here is my very first video of 2013 - singing while wrapped snugly in a scarf, of course :)
How did you all spend your holidays and New Year's Eve/Day?
I wish you all the very best and great happiness for the upcoming year!
