Who I Am – Why I’m Here – Part 4.

Months, maybe a year later I can’t recall, a friend was going thru a difficult time. She was lost, spiralling. I felt she needed something to hang onto, get herself steady, stabilized. See her way out of her troubles.

One morning it came to me… Why not post my affirmations, my poetry on my blog, accompanied by my art and photos? This could be a place where my friend could come daily. Maybe to be inspired to find solutions to her troubles, know she wasn’t alone.

So, that’s how my blog began and why I came to be here.

It is my hope my words, my art and photos will bring pleasure, enjoyment and inspiration to your life.

Who I Am – Why I’m Here – Part 3.

July 9, 2015

At the end of the workshop, to say thanks to my fellow journeyers, I made up postcards with a painting and an affirmation of mine on each.
Everyone in the group got their own unique card. One of the facilitators called to say thanks and said too, ‘You should do something with your poetry’.

Poetry?
I write poetry?

Who I Am – Why I’m Here – Part 1.

July 7, 2015

Last used July 7/15

I’m an artist. Have been all my life. Loving the drawing, painting of nature and feeling a connection to animal life.
People, not so much. People have issues. I have issues.

And that brings me to why I’m here.

At the urging of an acquaintance, I opened my blog. She was my first ‘Follower’ — just to encourage me to get out of my comfort zone and feel I was writing to someone, not just out to empty space. I thank her so much for her support then.

I believed a blog was a good place to show my art, my photos. Drive new customers to my website. But what made my blog any different from any other artist’s blog? What would make it unique? Me?

That was where I was stagnated. For months it sat there. Not a new post, not a new word.
