Something Good To Say
Blogging is such a compulsion for me, I don't think a day goes by when I am not thinking about posting something on Chickenblog.
But. Well, lately all of my posts have been sitting in a draft file. My thoughts, feelings and other musings have been too morose,
sad, frustrated, cranky, angry, bitter, funky and junky for daylight. I know, it hasn't stopped me from sharing before, but I find that
even my brilliant insights and reflections on the economy, our government, housing woes and the trials of being a rental
rat in a high brow neighborhood are just too depressing to print.
Yet, still, here I am. Here I am trying to think of something to share, something to extend to the world or to mark for our own memory banks.
And I got nothing. No pictures. No insights. Nothing. Do you think it's true, the old adage... if you can't say something good, then don't say anything?
Every thing I think of seems to come from someone else who is doing it, or saying it or sharing it better. So, I will fall back on the very essence and
core of what blogging is all about... creating a web... logging strands and connections between people and ideas, art, creativity, news.
Turkey Feathers has put up her banner for February, a bit early, but she's a busy talent and she
knows that some things are "now or never." This is the blog I visit
for eye-candy and reflections on life in a creative home. I am looking forward to ordering her book, "Blanket Statement." I know I won't find (much) time to start new projects... no matter, her inspiring ideas and beautiful photographs are a heartwarming tonic.
I have been abroad, in Belgium, exploring a whole new country and adapting to life far from my Georgia home... oh, wait.. not me, Dallas! Dallas, "For The Journey," is in Belgium, exploring a whole new country and adapting to life away from her Georgia home. She's brought her amazing photography skills, her sewing machine and her husband, so there are the familiar subjects I knew from her old blog, but now they are living in Europe and I have been enjoying the sights and following along as she navigates new paths.
Another adventurer I visit is Tara, of "TinyGlutton." She's a Canadian mother of 3 and she is a super quilter and skilled thrifter, living in Idaho. I love the light, bright and fresh looking quilt she posted about today. She played along in the "Interview Me" posts that "Chapter III" got me started on. Tara answered all of the questions posed to her in this post. I think the interview posts have been very interesting.
Recently I have been visiting a new to me blog called, "Wonders Never Cease." I think I should go to this blog whenever I am on empty. She posts a variety of links and her own reflections on a single subject, including a variety of related images and videos. It's like a mini explore, with tangents, of an idea, or a word, or a person, or a name... Just go see for yourself. I am realizing that I am running out of time, before I should be cleaning, cooking, driving, organizing, filing etc and I won't be able to highlight as many blogs as I had hoped, so I am not saying as much, as well, as I would like... Don't assume you know what she is going to say about a subject... ready for Change?
My time is up. I really am going to walk away from the computer and get busy with clearing messes and even making new messes.
Have a good weekend. Get inspired. Find a view. Come by and share some news.
