Hi... Welcome to my 'Thoughts on this amazingly, complex and gorgeous world that we live in/on.'
Love, Laugh, Live
Well, this is my very first ever 'Blog' in the whole world.
Granted in the past when something got me riled up, I would say 'a thing or two', yet to write more then a paragraph? What?
I share my views of the world in photographs, not words!
And that I know stems back to 3rd grade primary school, when I wrote a 'composition'. I thought I had told a great tale, until my teacher gave me my book back and the mark was less than exciting. In her follow up I was sure that she said that I couldn't write a story for anything in the world... or was that my crushed young heart, dramatically and finally at 8 believing that I was doomed to never be able to string a sentence together? That's what I unconsciously believed for many, many years and particularly in my late to mid 30's when i would apply for jobs in the Commonwealth Public Service that I was working with at the time. "Your statement addressing the Selection Criteria was too long... it was too short... you didn't give examples... you gave too many examples"!!!
I resigned myself to not being able to follow the rules of writing and set about expressing myself in other ways... one of them obviously in my photography.
And then, one day I decided that I had words to express and opinions to share, I had experience of this world that I wanted to share and there were others out 'there' that perhaps wanted to hear it.
I first hid myself in amongst my wonderful friends who were so great at expressing themselves in the written word and I got more confident and over the last few years I have added 'paragraphs' all over.
Now, the culmination today, I know I have lots to share and am finally confident that when what I share comes from my heart, my composition 'Rocks'!
