This photo is of Lake Ontario and shows the horizon.
If you are of average adult height, standing on flat ground, the visible distance to the horizon is just under 3 miles. If you feel energetic and want to climb a hill to a height of 330 feet, you may see as far away as 22 miles.
The part of the lake that is visible on this side of the horizon, is called the offing.
Another definition of the word 'offing' is
the 'near or foreseeable future'.
For 2010 it is my intention to keep my feet firmly on the ground, with no desire to see ahead, just to live in the moment. To enjoy each day as it comes, regardless of what life has to offer. Things will evolve as they should. I will let go of my worries and offer them up to the universe and let the powers that be take care of them.
All the universe asks in return is gratitude for what we have.
Whatever your resolutions or intentions for 2010, I wish you the very best for the coming year,
and an unbounded joy for life and living.
"Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself." ~ Richard Bach
