So, I shall talk about why I decided to start this blog.
I've been what I will call a "Blogpie" (Blog Groupie) for some time. I have a list of various blogs that I frequent daily and am always interested in keeping up with the news, following the updates, and stepping into these other worlds. I am thrilled and intrigued to stumble upon a new one once in a while and slip mindlessly into someone else's perspective, drama, challenges and day-to-day existence. It's the peeping Tom in me, I guess. The same way people like to gawk at accidents, people watch at the Mall, and eavesdrop on strangers in restaurants. By seeing into the lives of others, I hope to gain insight into how other people live, love, laugh, and yet, still manage to shine through it all. So, in sharing my own random thoughts, I suppose I am hoping to find some direction, gain some clarity, improve my own perspective, or at the very least open myself up and perhaps as a result, manage to get the ball rolling towards realizing some dreams. How, might you ask, will a simple little blog accomplish all this? I have no idea, but anything is possible...right?
I will be honest, many of the blogs I follow are photography blogs, which for the most part leave me feeling part awestruck, and part completely and utterly inadequate. For this, you see, is my dream. The aforementioned dream I hope to accomplish someday? To be a photographer. A real photographer, not just a (heavily) practicing hobbyist. And to have a photo blog of my own that people like me would visit, marvel over, and hold in high respect. Why does this seem so far off? For starters, I lack the equipment, the knowledge, the training, and most importantly, the confidence. I do, however, have plenty of passion. So, as I shape and mold this blog of mine, you will see it grow, I hope, into a forum through which I can share some of my favorite photos and take some leaps and bounds towards achieving this goal. But mostly, you'll read a lot of my obscure ramblings, hear charming (and most likely redundant) stories of my precious boys, and hopefully gain some insight into who I am, what makes me tick, and where it is I'm headed in this joyride we call life!! Buckle up and keep your hands inside the cart at all times! I hope you enjoy the ride!
