Day 15 In Search of my Blogging Identity “Tips for Pursuing Vision”

"I saw glimpses of the vision…and then the smoke rolled in." It seems we must work through the grind in order to live the sublime! Over the years, I have come to believe that creativity develops on a continuum and a vision worth reaching requires perseverance. My eclectic creative temperament was imbedded by a mother who raised us …

Day 14 In Search of my Blogging Identity “Synergy”

It was difficult to post this morning and tonight in light of the Haiti tragedy. Any words written seemed ridiculous while watching the suffering on the news and internet. After deciding how I could help, I chose to post anyway. During these times of earth-shattering crisis, I am proud to be a part of humankind. Seeing countries …

Day 13 In Search of my Blogging Identity “The Modern Renaissance”

The squeeze…here we go! A chance to be honest once again…I knew it would happen, but just not so soon. Understandable…I'm back to work…then to the gym…dinner with hubby…return a call to my best friend…American Idol… …can't find my sketchbook with the drawings intended for post number 12…the one I have on my computer looks …

Day 12 In Search of my Blogging Identity “The Land of the Little People”

"Behold, The land of the Little People…of which I am just one!"        When I was a young mother, my children, niece, and nephews used to gather around as I told them make-believe stories. Fascination glowed from captivated faces. Otherwise squirming bodies calmed as together we set out on adventures into a magical land of little …

Day 11 In Search of my Blogging Identity “The Vision”

We might see a glimpse through a dream or an epiphany, but often the promises of God form over a lifetime. Moving forward in darkness of sight…one step at time… is the usual.                                      I do not know what my future holds, but I do know I have never been happier than since I started writing …

Day 10 In Search of my Blogging Identity-“Awakenings”

"Life is like a series of awakenings from birth until death."            Contemplation is essential for the human soul and yet modern living does not easily lend to this practice. The temptation to stay continually "connected" leaves little time for reflection. Without reflection, one activity blurs into another.        Awakening... sudden awareness, recognition, or realization …

Day 9 In Search of my Blogging Identity-“Stepping Out”

"If we step out into the light with all of our insecurities still hidden… who can penetrate such darkness?"        These words floated through my mind as I drifted off to sleep. After they awakened me, I wrote them down. This morning, I contemplate their challenge.      Yesterday I had written a post titled "Awakenings" yet removed it when …

Day 8 “In Search of my Blogging Identity” Poetry Enhancement

As the 8th day of my blogging identity quest comes to an end, I am thankful for having ventured into the artistic worlds of others. There are so many creative people! Part of my new blogging identity quest led me to the poetry of gifted writers. These blogs sparked the desire to post my poetry written …

Day 7 “In Search of my Blogging Identity”-Self-Disclosure

Recently I posted a piece explaining why I love masks; they remind me of trying on new identities. Today, I explore a different perspective. Masks also speak to me of hiding my identity from others.   Dark, mysterious masks inexplicably draw me. As if some unseen force lures. I imagine what the former masquerade balls were …
