Heads up everyone, it’s a magic day today!

And it is also the anniversary date of this blog. I started it on this date, four years ago.

A lot of things are different for me then they were back then. And yet a lot of things are the same. I'm wondering if some of the wrong things are different, and if some of the wrong things are the same.

I took the long way home today. It wasn't because of this date, or because of this post. It just sort of happened. I stopped by the old house where my mother grew up. I'm not really sure why I did that, but I did.

Then I drove through the old neighborhood where I grew up. I stopped at the Barnes and Noble, bought a tea, and walked over to the old Library that I used to go to as a kid.

I left there and I bought a cookie at the Paradise Bakery down the street. I stopped and looked around inside there for a minute, because I wrote a couple of my blog posts from that location.

And then I drove to the park in Sandy that I've been going to for years. I hiked up the mountain and sat there while the sun set. I've always loved parks. When I was a kid, maybe five or six-year’s old, I used to tell people that I wasn't Alma, and that Alma had gone to the park.

Some days, I feel like telling people that now.

"I'm sorry sir, Alma isn't in the office today. That's right, he has gone to the park."

It's a tempting thought. Maybe I’ll try it sometime . . .

Things are a lot different in life then they used to be, and things are a lot different now then I expected them to be four years ago. I'm not entirely sure what I expected, but they are different.

Two thousand eight was really an amazing year, for us as a nation, and personally for me.

Two thousand nine and beyond? Well, it's been interesting the last couple of years to say the least. For everyone.

I suppose that everything is cyclical. That's the nature of things. A lot of us had plans, hopes, and dreams. We thought that we knew where we were going and what we were doing, but things changed for a lot of us.

I too, had lots of plans, hopes, and dreams attached to the creation of this blog. Those ideas never really worked out like I hoped they would at the time. Maybe it's for the best, or maybe not. I don't know yet.

I haven't been behind the camera much the last couple of years. That in turn has contributed to less blog posts. We'll see what happens in the future. It needs a re-design, and a re-focus.

I took this image today at the park. It's pretty simple, but it means a lot to me, and it's the best one I got during my walk.
