An unexpected gap in my day. A little window, spent peering into the archive.
Christina and Denise, both writers whose elegant words and images never fail to make an impact, asked me to sort through 7 posts which define this space. Can't refuse a request from such wise, warm women.
The moment I decided to share the film photos in posts is the very moment this place began to feel like home. At the beginning - oy, really, it's so cringe-worthy I could almost press delete on the first two years - I was sure it was words that people would want (if they wanted anything at all, was my thinking). Turns out it's the pictures and an economic use of words that draws people in. Having tried just about everything I could - for more than a decade - to avoid making pictures, it is, in the end, what makes me happiest. May have taken me a while to find my feet creatively, but found them I have. Blogging's been..interesting. Unexpected. Delightful at times.
Felt as though this was going somewhere interesting here: Bowls-full
AND this gave me clue as to where things might go What does home mean to you?
The recent success of this, thanks to pinterest, is mind-boggling: Roasted Cauliflower, Just So
Whose success surprised
I wrote this while feeling...sad, to put it mildly. Sad about blogging, about people...still makes my heart heavy today, but it spoke to others, too: Last Night's Curry
Post of which I am most proud
There was a seventh question - most under-appreciated post...well, I don't feel as though any posts have been under-appreciated around here. Any reading done by anyone feels like a gift, really. Thank you.
