My word for 2012 is perspective. Here is my whale mantra and my haiku to symbolize that word. This is a combo of my photography, a drawing I did of a whale, maps, clip art and Photoshop collage.
When I was in California last month I took my family whale watching. We saw lots of bottle nosed dolphins, and Rizzo dolphins, but no whales. I was disappointed. When I came home, I realized that the whales were there, making their migration to the warm waters of Southern Baja in Mexico, whether I saw them or not. The might have been deep under the water of our boat.
Change your perspective
Turn, gaze, open, embrace, see
It is all here, now.
