New Years News

Ringside View of Underside of Van Horne Overpass
New Years is celebrated a little differently when you have children, but it's still a time of thinking about future goals. I have just four days left of my eleven-day vacation, and other than blogging, I appear to have crossed out very little on my to-do list.

As this is my last year living on the Plateau, I decided that I would photograph some area murals before they were defaced and some little corners of my neighbourhood that I have fond memories of. Believe it or not, next to the train tracks and the Van Horne overpass, there are plenty of artistic undertakings.

My husband and I have been working on a special project for about two months, a new visual blog that, in theory, was to require very little writing except for the basic template and a line or two about the work and artists we will be featuring. We hope to provide a daily visual fix for visual addicts.

Have I bitten off more than I can chew? I think so, but my husband seems to think that once I get the hang of it, I'll be able to knock off a post a day. At this particular point, I'm not so confident, but maybe it's just my pre-launch jitters.

Here's to jumping into a new project and the New Year feet first!

Happy New Year and please drop by our new blog: The Day's Visual Picks

Stay tuned for our official launch.

We're working on it, as I speak. There's more of a learning curve than I expected. H
