Returning to the Blog

For over 5 years I took the time every day to share something on my blog. For most of that time it was my picture of the day, but sadly back in November that streak came to an end. I wish I could say what happened, why a month that I was hoping to inspire me to get back to writing regularly on my blog could be when I stopped posting at all. I can’t, it started with me taking longer and longer to post my picture of the day, till one day I didn’t then another and another.  Next thing I knew it was December and I hadn’t shared a picture of the day since November 6th. I took them, but they are just sitting in my photo library waiting to be shared.

I tried to jumpstart my blogging in December, but it failed.

So I set my sights on the new year. I hopped that I could start 2016 with a renewed commitment to the blog. The first came and went with no new posts.

POD: Nathan Phillips Square at Night


Tonight I had a little different night. Instead of an evening at Violet’s dance class I headed down town for a PHP meetup. The meetup was interesting, and I learned somethings I hope to put to work in some of my current projects. On the way home I was struck at how city hall looked all lit up. So of course it became today’s picture of the day.

POD: Treat for Daddy

Snack for Daddy
