it’s almost time

The December edition of The Changing Seasons is coming soon

It’s almost time for The Changing Seasons, for the end of 2021, for the beginning of 2022.

As the time draws nigh, glooming, a cloud, A dread beyond, of I know not what, darkens me. I shall go forth ….

Walt Whitman, As the time draws nigh from The Leaves of Grass, 1855

And go forth we must, with dread or cheer. But before that, please join Brian at Bush Boys World, and I, as we co-host a wrap up of the month. We are looking forward to catching up with you. Please pingback or post your links to either of our sites in a few days.

About The Changing Seasons

The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently — though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month.

For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape.

But in the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you.

There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.

Brian and I will post our The Changing Seasons at the end of the month. We hope you will join us with a post of your own, with a pingback or link to either of us.

Following along with Manja at Embarassment of Riches’ This day in my Blogging History segment at the end of each of her posts: I am inspired me to go back to look at some of my old posts; to chuckle in reminiscence and to gape at some of the things which caught my attention then. Here is my This day (or one closest to) in My Blogging History:

  1. Thank you for linking to past blog posts. I was particularly delighted to see you mention Lord of the Dance. We, too, bring that song into our season.

    Each year we attend a performance called the Christmas Revels, which introduces intermission with that song. The costumed performers weave through the audience and clasp willing folks by the hand. Eventually, we wind in long strands around and around the narrow lobby, singing and singing, until we all end triumphantly and exhausted. And my husband and I always get teary-eyed.

    p.s. your feature photo with the smiling gingerbread man is adorable!


    1. Here here to Team Cheer!
      Yes, you are indeed the first to get us going! Have already included you in the Roundup – post will be released in about 12 hours.

      Thank you for the thoughtful and encouraging wishes for the year ahead …. wishing for you & Jack the same!
