Having lived and traveled in Asia, a collection of red themed photos seemed like the obvious choice for The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Color. In many Asian cultures, red symbolizes happiness, joy, celebration, luck, and life. Its many shades were especially vibrant in Japan, gracing everything from ancient torii gates to elaborate kimonos. This gallery is just a sampling of the reds I collected from Japan, Singapore, and Bangkok.
I want to be a writer, yet Henry David Thoreau's cautionary words echo in my brain: "How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live." Knowing I have promised to blog daily for the coming year, I am committed to living the next 365 days to the fullest by seizing new opportunities, making old routines less mundane, and immersing myself in the details of ordinary situations. Building these habits will be key to convincing myself that I can legitimately sit down to write a future bestseller!
