365/365

This is the last entry for this blog. The intent of "Jonah 365" was to document one year, 2007, in words and pictures. Since the first five entries were text, it seems appropriate that the last entry be primarily text as well.

This is the 352nd entry - a few less than 365. As you may recall, I started this discipline eighteen days late. I played catch-up by posting diary entries for groups of days.

As I say, the first five entries were text; the remaining entries have been primarily photographic. The Blogger system encourages me to create "labels" (a.k.a., "tags") for each entry. A quick review suggests these are the top five:
  • fall (32)
  • OKC (31)
  • nature (30)
  • travel (26)
  • flowers (24)
I'd be remiss if I did not mention another one of my acknowledged obsessions: cats; there were 13 entries labeled "cat", 14 labeled "Cat Friday", and one labeled "cats".

My friend the Rt. Rev. Dr. Omed recently asked what I learned from this experiment. I learned it was physically possible to post at least one thing a day. I learned I could maintain the discipline, even though I tend to be a bit of a will-o-the-wisp. Though I tend to bounce from one means of creative expression to another as whim leads me, this year I focused primarily on photography.

Knowing that my goal was to post an image a day caused me to be more aware of my surroundings. As I drove back and forth from work each day, I would make a mental note of photo-worthy scenes. I made special trips to OKC's downtown on photo expeditions. I made special trips to local gardens and parks. I even made a three-hour drive to southeast Oklahoma for a fall foliage tour. All so I would have images to share in this space.

This blog space was dedicated to Project 365. In my mind, the goal has been to document a particular set of 365 days - the year 2007 of the Common Era. The blog will remain up so long as the overlords at Blogger see fit; it will not be up-dated after this entry.

I hope you've enjoyed the images I've shared this past year. I will continue posting images at my original blog-space, Love During Wartime. I hope you'll follow me there.

Thanks for taking this journey with me; I close with the spirit of 2008:

Thanks for sharing these photos. I lived several years in OKC and it was a nice trip down memory lane.
