An update:  I've been on Blip for more than two years now and have finally achieved the 365 milestone.  I love being a blipper and sharing the love and compassion of this marvelous community.  And I'm finding myself as a photographer.  I never was one before Blip, but I'm seeing what my eye is drawn too and learning about how to show that in my photos.  I know I am a far better photographer for having been on Blip.  You will note I've changed my avatar.  The old one no longer looks much like me, and since I've not taken a new one I can stand to look at, I'm switching to this picture that I love.

I'm a retired psychologist living in Seattle, Washington for the last 30 years.  Originally a New Yorker, I moved here to be near my sister and help raise my two wonderful nieces.  Finding a focus in retirement has been difficult for me - I've tried lots of things, but nothing lasting.  I learned about Blipfoto from my sister Endless Weekend and our mutual friend Connections, and I've been looking at all the great photos here for more than a year.  Now I'm ready to take a stab at it, with my very basic digital camera and my complete lack of experience.  I appreciate your support.
