December 31, 2010 (Day 365)
This is a gratifying day for me. This is day 365 of my 365 project. I would like to thank all my friends on PJJ365 who supported me throughout the year. This project would not be a success without you. There were times when I wanted to quit, but your encouragement kept me going. I was inspired by so many of your beautiful photos. They made me want to do better. As I look through my 365 photos, I can see I did improve, which was my initial goal.
What an experience this has been! Many highlights: my trip to Alaska, a trip to New Jersey/New York and a family trip to St. Louis to watch the Milwaukee Brewers play. Unfortunately the 365 also marked the lowest of the low-lights for me – losing my job after 33 years. I have gone through a process of grieving over the loss of my job but now feel that 2011 is going to be the best year ever! I believe that everything happens for a reason.
This is “The End” of my project. I do not plan to continue into 2011 but I will continue to take photos because it’s what I love to do.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
