Shades of grey

When we think back on the year, we remember supreme successes and frustrating failures. We remember events that made us giggle, and things that made us cry. We remember the people who went out of their way to be nice to us, and the ones who were nasty.
But is that what the year was? Ups and downs? Crests and Troughs? Wasn’t most of the year, just normal? One day merging into another. Chores performed, hugs exchanged, deadlines met. Survival from day to day.
Why do we focus always on the black and white. Isn’t life mostly shades of grey?

Flashback 2011- November
This monochromatic photograph was taken in November when I was visiting my mother. Crappy camera phone, no editing, yet, it was my unanimous choice for the month of November, when I was working on my Pictoral Flashback of 2011.

Natasha - I think most of life is made up of those "normal" things. And they are the stuff that keeps us going. Perhaps we remember the other things precisely because they aren't normal. It's similar to looking in a box of chocolates and especially remembering the only one wrapped in gold paper.
