The year of the turtle

I have seen many blogs dedicated to the end of 2007, so I figured I would put my two cents in the hat. My year was one of professional growth, I spent the year learning to do my job really well. I spent the year paying off the debts I acquired while in school. I am almost credit card debt free! An amazing feat, if I do say so myself! So, now I am sure you are wondering why it was the year of the turtle and how my photo applies?

I am the turtle, going as fast as I can to get to the point were I can travel. (See Petroglyphs post.) Because I am a turtle, I am slow by nature. It took a year and a few months to cross the road, find my new home, and get on with life. It also applies, because I have a hard outer shell to protect me, and to hide behind to save myself from the sorts of bad things that life throws at you. Luckily, I haven't had to hide too much. Life was kind to me this year.

Yes, this is very philosophical/earthy thinking....but give me a break, its 0100.
