The haze was low this morning, wafting across the fields like an amber blanket. The combination of dawn and lingering mist is one to savour for any photographer. So even though it’s still a bit foggy, my word for 2015 is “inkling”
Inkling – a vague idea or notion, a slight understanding, hint, hunch, intimation…….
Where to start? Not a clue. Maybe it means following hunches and hints? Listening to whispers, both intriguing and unsettling?
So inkling it is. Add a T and you get tinkling, the sound of the distant bells that are starting to ring, the promise of miles and miles of dry land ahoy, a hint of celebration.
And this morning look! It was as misty and foggy as any New Year’s Day could possibly be. The winds are picking up now, the rain is battering down but the two feet are dry….
So Happy New Year dear friends. Let’s love life in 2015 and here’s to the freedom to explore vague inklings, hunches, hints and intimations. There is another kind of opening to possibility in that….
Beautiful! I wish you a wonderful year with your word!
Thanks Yvonne, I wish you a wonderful 2015 too!
Happy New Year to you – my friend!! Love your word. May you follow every hunch to wherever it might lead – 🙂
And to you Marcie, into 2015 we go, still doing our thing!
I have always love the word, 'inkling'…such a fun word…some mystery about it but a pull to try to catch that glimpse or hint….it is a perfect word to have fun with this year Catherine. I wish you a wonderful New Year my friend with surprises around every corner as you explore these inklings! Happy 2015!!!
Thank you Donna, I hope it's a fun year for both of us:~))

Inkling sounds like one of the little people skipping thru the low rays of sunlight in the woods.
Happy New Year!
Diana, you are SO right!!! Happy New Year hon:~))
Happy new year! Beautiful shots – I look forward to following along in 2015 🙂
Thanks Helen, and I'm so delighted to see you here!

I love your word for 2015: inklings (it has a lovely ring : ). And I'm taking it to heart to listen to those precious hunches that can guide the way. Thank you for your lovely photos & musings–may your new year be beautiful and blessed.
And a special New Year to you too Diane, already I notice it's a good word if you want to ease up on the pressure to be "perfect"…….badly needed here…..

So loving this low haze series…always draws me in! I also just love hearing that word – inkling! Always have and so happy that you have chosen it so I'll hear it more throughout the year! ♥
I love this path we are on together in so many ways:~) Thanks Robin
Isn't Diana Studer just perfectly right? That is the feeling I have of your word as well. You will see when you read my Blocation post next week, where my more-than-inklings have led me-:)) My words are two: health and clarity. They dismiss perfection in the crucial need *for them* to shine. Wish me luck my friend! I've tackled big projects before, but I was younger…still the creative spirit will not be quieted, it just paces itself. I love your walks…it takes me right there. A big merry and blessed new year to you Catherine–may all you inklings guide you well.
Susie, I look forward to those musings of yours. Health and clarity will lead you in all kinds of directions but all good for the soul and the poor old bod which so often is neglected! I look forward to our continued connection in 2015 and walking together as we do from time to time. Here's to a great year:~))
How intringuing! I will look forward to you path along this inkling.
And of course, I'm in love with your golden light playing with the morning mist.

Happy New Year and I love your inkling word! My word for 2015 is "free", odd though that is for me. Your photographs are absolutely stunning.
