It's been a big week in the Picket Fence house. Lots of appointments here and there, lots of driving to those appointments here and there ,lots of sitting ,waiting ,sighing and thumbing through year old women's weekly magazines,waiting for appointments here and there.... School assemblies and domestic duties took the front stage and a couple of birthdays flew into visit :) Phew, makes me want to sit out the back with a glass of something dry and sweet and play cloud dreaming for a while !
That aside, I've been doing some thinking :) Not mummy thinking , you know, appointments, school uniforms, assemblies, birthday kind of thinking; But really thinking; the introspective kind of thinking, that sits waiting for a busy mummy to find a quiet moment and really think about the stuff that makes her tick. Bare with me here ;)
I love to ramble, to contemplate, to relish my life and loves, photographing them and writing about them in the form of a blog ,hopefully ,gives me some parameters in which to do this. The essence of blog writing is about refining what you love, photographing your glass half full rather than half empty and singing your song with gusto. Its about looking at who you are and then going ,Yep my world is awesome and totally worth sharing.
In a world full of necessity, blogging is somewhat unnecessary and yet in other ways essential. It makes you stop, and create something, use that part of your brain which involves your eyes and emotions , its intimate and therefore intrinsically valuable. Its a common mans art :) It makes me happy.
So here, as I stagger along learning how to use my beautiful shiny new camera, photographing my tarnished and often shabby treasure, as I describe my chaotic and noisy family of 6 , humour me ,because its a warts and all unique song, a personal journey, a focus on the things that make my heart sing.
More now than ever, Thanks for sharing my ride
