  1. What a beautiful way to sum up the year.
    Pictures, facts and all, easily twitted, easily liked, easily appreciated. I love seeing the master at work.
    I hope I am able to learn some of these wonderful social media ways from you in the year 2013. I know you have already taught me a lot, but like any good student eager to learn more.
    May beautiful words and pictures fill your life in the coming year.
