My 2011 calender for you



As we begin the year, I would like to share with you some of my images recently posted for download in the form of bookmarks. These 2011 Calendar Bookmarks  cover the first quarter of this year and feature three of my favorite ones captured in 2010 from the Berkeley telephone pole series Typography Graveyard.

In general things have been slow all last year due to my being in cardiovascular rehabilitation and though I graduated at the end of August, I since returned six weeks later till early mid-December. The year 2011 will remain guarded, yet I have decided that health issues should no longer dictate my life as it has these past two years., this also means no longer bringing it in future posts.


A few days ago, during meditations I scribbled a few words in my notebook, then revisited them the following day. The following line represents my path for this year.

The dreams you have sealed away,
give them the breath of life so that you may experience living.”


In closing I wish to thank you dear reader for having ventured with me these last nineteen months and though I cannot predict what this years offerings will bring for us, my notebooks have been filled with ideas which deserve another closer look.



Thank you for your visit

I am so excited and encouraged to see this post. I think your ideas of what the future for you will encompass is a healthy and yet inspired one. I am facing my own challenges to be more heart healthy, facing some surgery and big lifestyle changes, and struggling with what that might mean to my artistic endeavors and inspirations. I need to see you fly now!

Dear Folk Heart,

Your words give me strength and I wish to give you encouragement as well, but there is no link back to you or an email address and yet I am hoping this message reaches you. Please send me an email so that I may reply in private.

Warmest regards,
Egmont

What a gift, these words that came to you (from you)...yes live we must, we are fragile, it is true, but living as fully as possible moment to moment (and that fullness shifts) is what we are here to do/be.

A great idea Egmont, thank you for this. I will be downloading and printing straight away. Best wishes for the coming year.

Querido Egmont, ya he imprimido el calendario para estos tres próximos meses. Lo tendré delante para contemplar tus estupendas fotografías. Muchas gracias por hacer todo este trabajo para los amigos de la red.

Cuídate mucho y da la importancia justa a tu corazón, ni más ni menos. Tenemos varios proyectos por delante y hay que pensar en ellos.

Muchos besos, Isabel

Te mando por correo una Photo Booth con tu calendario.

Thank you Egmont! I love these!
What a beautiful gift you have given with the bookmarks but also the writing you shared. Can't wait to see what unfolds as you "give your dreams the breath of life". Love that! Happy New Year!

Teri said...

I must be doing something wrong because I cannot get them to print full size. Can you help? Thanks in advance. Glad to see you back!

The Artist Within Us said...

Dear Teri,

What you need to do is go to the link underneath the picture that will take you directly to the full size version in my 'Freebie' folder on Picasa.

Once you are in the folder, click on the image then just above it is the button 'download', click on that and retrieve it fro your computer.

Warmest regards,
Egmont

Thank you, Egmont, for generously sharing your thought-provoking photography through the bookmarks. It always amazes me to see the images you capture in the things that the rest of us pass by as ordinary.

I hope the coming year is an enjoyable and productive one for you. Your post is an inspiration for positive thinking. Thank you!

Thank you for the wonderful New Year's gift. As soon as my desktop computer is fixed I shall download them.
It's good to see you on board again! We love seeing and reading your posts.

Lieber Egmont, Dein neues Motto gefällt mir sehr gut! Du blickst voller Erwartung und Hoffnung in das neue Jahr. Ich hoffe, dass Deine Träume in Erfüllung gehen und viele schöne Erfahrungen in 2011 auf Dich warten! Vielen Dank auch für die schönen bookmarks, die Du für uns gestaltet hast! Liebe Grüße an Dich, Miss Kitty und die Familie von Luzia.

It is so good to have you back! I feel for you and the journey you have been on. Two people I am close to are having major (life-threatening) health issues as we speak. I can see how facing such an illness could become all-consuming, as it has affected all of us. I cannot possibly imagine (though I suspect I will know one day), what it is like to face mortality so directly.

I greatly admire your goals for the coming year. I can say that my creative endeavors help me cope with everything else life throws at me, and I suspect it is the same for you. More than that - they can make everything shine! So best wishes for 2011 - I cannot wait to see what your living dreams will produce!

excellent!

teresa stieben said...

beautiful, you shine. I love your meditation note. I myself know how hard it is to unwrap from chronic health situation to put aside fears, to live and see deeper. Big Hugs.

Here's to fulfilling your dreams for 2011- in all ways possible! very best for the new year!

Carol said...

Egmont, a beautiful calendar and such an inspiring thought for us all to be going on with - "give your dreams the breath of life" - wow, I will write that on my heart. xx

FINALLY I'm taking some leisure time to catch up on my favourite blogs. I do beg forgiveness for having taken so long. As usual your images are 'époustouflantes' as we say in French. They blow me away.
Live live live Egmont. As much as you can and let's catch up soon

Leonardo da Vinci is credited for having painted Mona Lisa, is commonly known. The painting was created during the Renaissance, in Florence. It is believed that the painting was started in the year 1503 and completed in 1519. The painting portrays Lisa Del Giocondo, who was from an affluent household in Florence.Unfortunately, the painting was stolen in 1911 by an employee at the Louvre. Being an Italian, he believed that Mona Lisa should be returned to Italy where it truly belonged and not France. He managed to conceal the painting in his apartment for close to 2 years. However, the long arms of the law finally caught up with him when he attempted to sell it to a Gallery in Florence.This painting can be reproduced by WahooArt in cracked form, which will give it the exact look of the original painting! http://www.wahooart.com
