What will be will be - So come with me.

Posted by
Abena (Illinois, United States) on 6 January 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

Que Sera Sera (spanish) translates to what will be, will be and sometimes it's best to do exactly that.
So, it's a new dawn and hopefully a great start to the year :-)

Splendid image (seems not completely horizontal) and good start of the new year! I wish you the very best, keep your dreams alive and one day they'll come true!
Television gives us alarming news about your environment, I hope everything is well with you and your family. It must be an enormous challenge to survive such a low temperatures, especially if you're not used to them! Warm hugs from your friend in Belgium!

@christine: I tried correcting it a little but I see how it isn't straight. one day I really hope they do come true! Thank you Christine! oh the weather has been horrible! Never seen so much snow or such cold before! We've been in the house a lot keeping warm though :o) and yes indeed it is very different. hugs to you too!

I wish the weather will change soon! On Facebook the american photographers are making all kinds of experimental images indoors, so snow can be a boost for creativity. I hope you can stay positive! :o)
