Reflections on a year gone by

Now that 2013 in nearing its end

(it’s 9:37 pm as I write this), I’d like to take a moment to reflect back on the past 12 months.

Quite honestly, this year has been far from the best for me and my family. There have been a lot of struggles, pain and heartache. And while I am always looking forward to the fresh start a new year brings, that is especially so this year.

Despite the negatives,  there have been some bright spots among the darkness. And many of those came in the form of arts.

So, without further ado, I would like to thank, acknowledge and recognize the following, all of which have had a great, positive impact on the year that was.

The models

To all the amazing models with whom I had the pleasure of working and creating some amazing art, thank you so much and I hope to work with you more in 2014.

Web design and Social Media clients

To all those in need of social media management or content creation and the development or revision of websites, I thank you for allowing me the opportunity as well as the challenge.

Fiverr buyers

To everyone on Fiverr who ordered one or more of my “gigs” allowing me to delve into a variety of artistic projects ranging from photo editing to custom limericks. It’s been great and I look forward to working with you guys even more this year.

The muses

To anyone or anything that inspired me over the course of the year to seek out that perfect photo, write that ideal line of poetry or otherwise create the best pieces of art that I could, you have been so amazing and I am truly grateful.

The structure of a limerick

As any fan of prose probably knows, there are several styles of poetry out there. If you’re a fan of poetry books of simply like to write yourself, you’ve probably at least heard of the term limerick.

So here’s the lesson of the day if you will.

A limerick is a poem that follows this simple pattern:

1. They contain five lines.

2. Lines 1,2 and 5 rhyme.

3. Lines 3, 4 rhyme.

I’ll leave you with a link to practical examples of poems about life, humor, culture and more that fit this style.
