"The world is too much with us." ~ William Wordsworth 1806
THE world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
The Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not.–Great God! I’d rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.
As we close this year I just wanted to take a moment and thank you all for sharing your lives with me.
You’ve inspired, and encouraged me more than words can say, and I’m grateful for each of you.
I’m looking forward to your adventures, and photographic journeys in 2012. May they be safe trips filled with laughter, true friends, health, and great light!
