Where did the year go?

This has been one of the busiest years of my life. I’ve been the project manager/advisor for a LONG project that has been ongoing for eighteen months. During this project I’ve started to dislike technology by the end of the day. I don’t want to deal with computers. I don’t want to read blogs. I don’t want to post on my own blog. Possibly the worst situation for someone that has a blog.

I’ve wanted to do posts about ‘live photo’ on my new iPhone 6s. I wanted to post about the Color Curves app. I’ve wanted to post about my Apple Watch and how it works with some photo apps (I’m so happy with Apple Watch!). There are new iOS apps every day, Adobe has added a wealth of new/updated apps, and the iPhone keeps getting updated.

Last week I took my first day off in 2015. I went up to New York City and ran the marathon. I hadn’t run a marathon in two years but it was fun. It was a challenge. My time wasn’t the best, but it wasn’t my worst. Three hours and forty eight minutes. Running gave my mind several hours of pure relaxation and I focused on taking one more step over and over again, and avoiding the mass of humanity the covered the city that day. My mind and body both felt good at the end of the run considering I’d just completed 26.2 miles on a sunny afternoon in NYC! I was happy.

A gorgeous fall day in Central Park. I used Glaze for the painted look.

My project is getting closer and closer to completion – that should happen by the end of January. A long vacation isn’t too far off. On a whim I signed up for the Stockholm Marathon in June 2016. That sounds like a great vacation to a place I’ve never been (I have only spent a few days of my entire life outside of the United States). I can’t wait to take some pictures of Sweden on my iPhone.

I’m sure I’ll be blogging about that.
