When I first developed this photo, I threw it in with the 'bad' lot... I thought of throwing it away, except it lingered a 'je ne sais quois' in my mind.

...I decided to sort through old photos to post for today's blog, and came upon it.

With today being my birthday, I guess I began to feel a sort of need for reflection... getting older, when you're past the days of planning fun birthdays, seemed all too melancholy for me. I grew up on an island where everyday the sun was bright, the air was warm and the winds were cool. I suppose I had a bit of nostaliga when I woke this morning... but looking at this photo reminded me of how, even when the sky is as dark and threatening, as the sea is rough and angry - there is light, there is calm, which brings brightness to the sky, softness to the sea... And for me, another fresh, new and unsuspecting year.

It's like Forest Gump said...

" was like a box of chocolates, never know what you're gonna get."
