Seven to Eight

(Scene of Winter Sonata)

Somehow I was never a photo blogger, nor would I try to be one. There are attempts of course, but then, it just never got to me. This is simply a different one, its a different year after all.

(Frozen fountain on a frozen pond)

I think it all began with being someone who's hardly interested in cam-whoring. I find it clashes with who I am, not that I do not appreciate every single moment, but somehow I never chose to capture them with a simple few clicks.

As for the reason of why I don't, I myself is not quite sure. Perhaps is because I find myself unphotogenic, or because photos sometimes reveal unspoken secret that you simply cannot hide.

People take photos to savour sweet memories, something that one day when they look back, they could tell a beautiful story based on those captivating moments. Something to remind them, a little artwork that tells you after all the hard work you've done, its actually worth it.

(Four Season's Garden of Everland)

And yes, I do agree a picture is worth more than a thousand words. It is I believe a great relief to a lot of people out there for something is better left unsaid and the responsibility to express is conveniently shifted into the visual department.

Another year had gone, a reason for people to reflect what they've achieve throughout those 365 days that seems to evaporate after a good night sleep. Of all the happenings within a year which tell you which route to follow, and which to not, for the brand new year.

(Lotte World's Christmas Parade)

There are those who say there's nothing much to celebrate, its just like our birthdays, its comes and goes every year and how special can that be, the meaning of it thinned at a gradual speed as one simply has too much of it.

(War Memorial)

But then, even if one agrees of it returning every year in a same cycle, some would certainly say it is still a different year than the one before. You will never have the same year twice, nor would you be the same age for more than once after the year has melted. And perhaps that alone is enough a reason for one special fine day.

New year resolutions are made every year, and of course, broken every year too. Pretty often, people tend to continue their last year's resolution, in other words, make it your resolution to achieve the one made earlier. Now, perhaps one might just wonder how many resolutions have you made in order to fulfill previous ones.

Maybe this is odd, but for the past few days, I've been trying to recall what was my year 2007 resolution. And I just haven't got the slightest clue at all of whatever it was. I guess I'll just settle with not even having one at all.

Happy New Year..=)
