Transitioning Into 2019

“Light precedes every transition. Whether at the end of a tunnel, through a crack in the door or the flash of an idea, it is always there, heralding a new beginning.”  (Teresa Tsalaky)

Memories of transitions

Come and go

New year sets the stage

For realignment

Change of perspective

Finding the magic

In possibilities

Passions still alive

As the winds of change

Flux and flow


All these photos were taken in 2019.  The one just above (representing my passion for writing and photography) peaked my curiosity. I was holding a pen and the sunlight white-washed my hand. In post processing, lines appeared like writing paper.  So weird!  So I wrote a few words on it.  The magic of photography!


“A lot of people resist transition and therefore never allow themselves to enjoy who they are. Embrace the change, no matter what it is; once you do, you can learn about the new world you’re in and take advantage of it.”  (Nikki Giovanni)

    Love the quotation! So fitting. Your poem made me think that age gives us the advantage of greater flow – we can just carry on with what works. The last image is incredible – so apt.

      It’s a decorative barrier at the bottom of my balcony that looks out onto some trees across the street. I thought it was an interesting image for transition. Thanks for noticing the dream-like feel to it. 🙂
