Not only is it from Pete Seger, but the Bible too! What do you know? ;)

3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.


My 2009 was filled with all of the above (except maybe the "hate" part--I've never been good at hate) and I'm betting that 2010 will be filled with more of the same. The world keeps spinning, and I keep spinning with it! Funny how that works.

Above is my year in pictures, with much artistic liberty taken with Photoshop. :) I wish you all a very Happy New Year, and as Oprah said: "Cheers to a new year, and another chance for us to get it right."

Happy New Year to you, too, Sharon! Thanks for your comment and New Year wishes over at my blog (and noting my "Duh!" moment...lol).

I'd love to have someone with more skill at Photoshop than I tinker with my header. My photos aren't wildly inspiring compared with so many others' (especially yours!) and my little digital isn't the best, either I fear. (Note I'm avoiding suggesting that the photographer's skills are less than polished, too). Hard to believe I was photo editor of my HS yearbook waaaaay back in the day and was far more able (and infinitely more patient) than I am now, I'm afraid.

Not sure what I'd feature in the next header to convey the idea of rural/urban, historic/modern, but let me know your thoughts and I'll see what images I can gather that might be suitable for some magic manipulation a la Serendipity.

Thanks again!

Oh, so very well done, Sharon! I love the effects you've created, making each pic so evocative. One thing that makes them so cool as a series is that only one shows the presence of human beings (without any human beings in the picture). A lovely summer photo with table and chairs ready for a summer party. Very, very cool series!
