I made it! For those of you that made the journey with me….thanks! Thanks for your encouragement, your support, your comments and likes.
I’ve given a lot of thought about what picture I should end the year with. After much deliberation I settled on one of my favorite selfies of me and Tina.
Tina is my wife, my support system, my partner, my friend and the encouragement that gets me through everyday. She helped me have the courage to start blogging and she is the person that patiently waits when I say, “hold on, let me finish this post.”
I’ve enjoyed the journey of posting 365 photos during the year 2015. I’ve enjoyed sharing my view of the world with people I’ve learned to call friends and I’ve enjoyed learning more about this world of blogging.
I look forward to sharing more journeys with each of you.
In April 2000 a tornado hit downtown Fort Worth and the near west side of downtown.
These four metal beams were once supports for a billboard. But Mother Nature bent them useless.
Instead of tearing them down, it was decided to include them in the design of a new post office.
I really like the connection of the bent steel and the mail carrier motto….”Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stay thecourier from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
On December 27, 2015 Meadowlark Lemon died. If you don’t know the name Meadowlark Lemon please follow this link and read about his amazing career and legacy as one of the most famous basketball players ever.
I admired Meadowlark Lemon as a child. I loved basketball and spent many hours shooting baskets in my driveway and trying to emulate Meadowlark Lemon. I practiced dribbling the basketball between my legs, I learned to spin the ball on my finger and I dreamed of shooting the perfect hook shot.
This morning after my workout I noticed the gym was void of the many children that typically run around shooting hoops. I decided to take advantage of the moment and spent time running up and down the court shooting baskets.
During my time on the court I entertained memories of playing in my childhood driveway and the many things I learned from coaches throughout my childhood. It was a workout with physical benefits and emotional benefits.
I think this photo sums up my Christmas nicely.
Yes, that is the bunny suit from A Christmas Story 🙂
Merry Christmas everyone!
I caught this candid shot of Santa as he waited for his sleigh to get gassed up for a night of deliveries around the world. 🙂
