some photos…

I may have mentioned several times that photography is one of my hobbies, and I realize that I've yet to post any pictures other than what you see in the header. I originally intended this blog to my photo blog, but it seems to have morphed into an entirely different and unexpected beast. I'm still … Continue reading some photos…

lyrically inspired. an idea.

I've been kicking around an idea the last several days, but I'm not quite sure if I want to give it a try or not. I suppose I can see how it goes. One of the things I love about myself is that I'm musically oriented. By that, I mean that I think in songs. A lot. … Continue reading lyrically inspired. an idea.

anxiety, friends, and looking up

Granted, it … Continue reading anxiety, friends, and looking up

I can go my own way!

Oh. My. God. I feel so liberated right now! I just did the blogging unthinkable and deleted not one, but TWO, posts that I hated! They just weren't in line with what I wanted to post and felt so completely contrived, it was ridiculous. But having deleted them? I'm seriously excited about it. That's how you know … Continue reading I can go my own way!

the blog of dreams…write it and they will come

When I started this blog, I had few concrete ideas about my purpose.. I still don't have many, even with participating in the Blogging 101 course.  I'm finding that the assignments are out of line with what I envisioned, but yet I can't tell you what that vision is. I write assignment posts and want to … Continue reading the blog of dreams…write it and they will come
