Looking Back ~ A Year of Pic and a Word

In the Wake, BC Ferries, Island Bound, Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada
I like to glance back
At the path I’ve travelled
To learn from trials and failures
From adventures and successes
And celebrate them all

Then I turn forward
Take the next step
With a clearer vision
Of the trials and adventures
The path ahead promises

Island Bound
BC Ferries
Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo
British Columbia, Canada

Taken during travels, 2015

There is little more satisfying
Than finding a little-used road
Crossing unfamiliar country

Such a road promises
Adventure, beauty, discovery
And the longer I follow it
The further inside myself I see

I posted Discovery 51 weeks ago, and so began the journey of Pic and a Word Challenge. In hindsight, it was a most insightful and appropriate beginning.

Now seems a good time to reflect, take a look back at where this challenge has taken not just myself, but also those who’ve risen to it and offered their beauties, their insights, those who’ve revealed a bit of their own journey. So, some of my favourites from 52 weeks of Pic and a Word Challenge. I’ve loved so many of your postings, I’ll split them between two posts. The responses to the first 26 weeks here. And the next 26 will be posted next Monday, or so.

To all those who’ve posted responses this past year, you have my deepest gratitude. For responding to these challenges, of course. But also for the beauty, insight and wisdom you’ve shared every week. Thank you all so much.

Please do offer your own favourites in comments.
