A Year Breaks

You won't be seeing 'Photo of the Year' from me today. There, I'm glad I have that out of the way.

Here are a few things I plan to do in 2014.
*"Know thyself." The Greeks had it right.
*Wear a kilt.
*Work hard.
*Photograph my world.
*Enjoy family hard.
*See friends more.
*Cook a bit.
*Read more.
*Write more.
*Take a trip.
*Make a new friend.
*Be a better person.
*Touch the future.
*Celebrate life.


  1. That is a loooooooong list, and I'd love to have you check in occasionally on the progress of each one. "Retired" intrigues me and I recommend it! Retirement Rocks!
    May 2014 bring you much happiness and love.

  2. Will we see a photo with you in a kilt? You'll have the bag over your head, of course. :-) Happy New Year, Birdman!

  3. I do like a man in a kilt Birdman, always have :) it's a Scots thing! All the very best for 2014..

  4. Even if I don't much like being in a cold and icy place, I do admire your photograph today. You have a good list. It will be interesting to see how you progress. I don't make lists. If I did, it would have one item. "Take it as it comes."

  5. This kilt seems to be a great idea, especially if you don't mind making a female as the "new friend"! :o)
    Happy New Year!

  6. It's a good list for many of us to follow, Birdman! Have a great year doing all those things! ;-)

  7. You have some lofty goals here but all are very worthwhile. Retire?? Good for you. Happy New Year.

  8. Great goals. I'd wait 'til summer to wear the kilt. LOL
    Thanks for visiting my blog in 2013 and hopefully you will chance upon it in 2914 also.
    Happiness in the new year, MB

  9. Good points and an awesome shot with some beautiful color.

  10. Great goals!
    Just do it!
    I wish you a HaPpY NeW YeAr!
    Look forward to see more of your photos. Greetings from Gunn / Stavangerdailyphoto.

  11. If'n you can do all those things, you'll probably end up a better person. I didn't see "Move to Florida" on the list, though.

    Also, if'n you do wear a kilt, please do NOT post a picture of yerself. OK?

    Another beauty of a winter photo!

  12. I like all your 2014 to dos. Happy New Year!

  13. Sounds like you are going to have a great and busy year. Wish you the best with your goals. Do all of them, but keep a camera handy.

  14. Hey Sounds good to me!

    Happy New Year to you and your family!

  15. Looking forward to your captures!

  16. Wear a Kilt! Now, that's the spirit!

  17. Well, this photo will certainly do even if you decline to chose one. Retire? At last? Think of all the adventures you will have.

  18. Birdman, you are making me wish for snow! Lovely shots of the great white, frozen water.

    Happy New Year. Here's to another great year of photoblogging.

  19. What a GREAT photo! Looks like a beam of light streaking down on the right to illuminate a red tree . . . balancing that reddish wood on the left. . . and what's that spot of yellow on the left . . . and those icy snow-coated trees are gorgeous. We have them too. And are you really going to retire this year??

  20. Thank you for the NY wishes, Birdman. I wish them back to you. We are in the midst of a hot summer right now, so the least said by me the better.

  21. Retire...that's a good one but hard to handle in the beginning. Don't know if it was the busy life of working 6 to 7 days at 10 to 12 hour days or just the friends and comrades I had gained during my years of working. If you put it in motion give it time and does become a great thing.
