Although I was not expecting to sprint over the 366-finish line, I must admit I feel more like I am limping.
But here is the last and 366th/366th photo for 2016.
It is also the last post for Move the Chair.
This all started with a gentle suggestion and nudge from an art coach in 2012 to move beyond Facebook postings of my photographs and to start a blog showing my work. Since then over 1,000 posts have been added along with hundreds of photographs.
In the beginning, it was frightening. What if nobody came? Or worse what if nobody found anything worth looking at? But then I realized the amazing gift I had been given by that suggestion: a giant canvas on which I could throw anything and everything to see what worked–for me–and what did not. If others wanted to come along for the ride, then that was icing.
I write for a living, but I have to say that words do not even begin to express the amazing things I have learned, the fantastic art and writing I have encountered, and the even more amazing souls I have met who have offered their support, their suggestions, and their enthusiasm.
And so here we are.
Thank you all so much for inviting me into your screens, particularly this year with the 366 Project. And for you, here is a parting bloom in appreciation combining a few of my favorite elements: tulips, negative space, a polaroid, and a Dickinson poem excerpt. For those of you interested in seeing where I go next, check out Instagram under #littledogslaughed. My other blog Little Dogs Laughed, to which many of you also have supported will still be chugging along for a bit longer.
Best wishes to all of you near and far to an abundant and creative 2017-and thank you-It has been a real pleasure.
