Feeling Blocked

  • Ha! Ha! A few weeks ago, I snapped a picture of my little gnome with just the expired plants around him. I thought it would be fun to capture him in the newly fallen snow from yesterday.
  • I really love this blog. I love that it gives me another creative outlet. I love that it gives me a place to record glimpses of my daily life and share them with my family and friends. The only thing is I don't know if my family understands how important this little corner of my world really is to me.
  • It's all part of a ritual of sorts. I have a short list of blogs that I like to follow and I enjoy starting off my day with a hot cup of coffee and a little quiet time to peek into the lives of fellow bloggers who want to share their worlds with me, too. Some are of friends I've known a while. Some are of blogs created by complete strangers.
  • I love that having this blog forces me to look at things in my daily life in a little bit different light. Remember that old Mac Davis Song? Everything Is Beautiful ... and I like to challenge myself to capture the beauty with my camera. And in turn, I like to share what I capture here.
  • Lately, the photographs have come easily, but the words have felt blocked. I've blogged before where words definitely came very easily. My goal is to get that back...the ease of letting words flow. I know a lot of it has to do with the many iterruptions I seem to endure with all the tiny knocks at the door from The Smalls. I have a few ideas of how to carve out a little time for me. The hard part is putting them in place to make them work effectively.

Sometimes, the photos ARE your words, they say what you want to say in images. I get lost for words sometimes, but my artwork speaks for me!
So, when you feel blocked, say it in photographs. You have a lovely talent, and it speaks for you!
