The absent blogger is how ichKalliope can be described of late. It's not for lack of thinking, dreaming, wondering, arguing and observing. Nevertheless, there has been little to nothing on these electronic pages!
Some of it was due to a Happy Hangover of 2009 and the election of President Barack Obama. A bit was due to my excitement and commitment to my new online friend Facebook. A little less traveling in 2009, depleted my photography bank. It was a tough year, and we were all directly affected, some far more than others. And although it was an ok year for me, nevertheless I am happy to see the calendar read 2010.
It's time to get back to ichKalliope. My little green book where I jot down blog ideas and begin most posts is filling up.
2009 ended in the embrace of family in Germany. Wonderful meals, nice talks, nice walks, bottles of wine, a little snow, game nights. For some, it may have been chaotic, for me it felt like one big needed hug to send me into 2010. If that wasn't enough, my sweet husband and I headed to Paris for New Year's. So the first post of this new decade comes from the beautiful city of lights on the Seine. Photos are taken from my iPhone, which by the way I am still in the middle of a love-hate relationship. Nevertheless the inspiration of form, settings, color and textures continues on for me.
Happy 2010 all!
