Image of the Month: January 2015

Slightly behind schedule, that is if one attempts to keep one.  For now I hope the delay of one day was worth the wait.  Still in disbelief that it's actually the new year I've come to the realization that it is indeed a time for reflection and hitting the 'reset' button.  To that end I'm sharing this simple, yet colorful and hopefully poignant image that conveys my message for the beginning of 2015; just breathe!

The message is quite simple.  Breathe.  Do so with purpose.  Slowly, gently, and deeply as each breath offers mini-moments of respite, reflection and perhaps new ideas and beginnings.

As for the artistic significance of the image itself I'll keep it simple and save the deep analysis for future "images of the month". Suffice it to say, although your eyes will fixate and luxuriate on the colorful patch of springtime sedum flowers carpeting the ground, they will eventually follow the small foot path to the horizon.  So no analysis paralysis, just a message of simplicity, a moment to breathe before meeting the challenges and opportunities of 2015.
