What a whirlwind week it has been, one filled with many big and small things!
The biggest and most important thing was undergoing my 15th procedure since the wreck and to finally have my smile restored! I’ve not devoted much blog space to the events of the past 9 months, and the only reason I’m doing so today is because this important event kept me from fulfilling an obligation that I committed myself to.
I’d been asked by 3 different bloggers to participate in a Blog Tour. I appreciated the invitations but knowing that I was a bit over extended and had a big case pending, I initially declined. Eventually I did agree to participate because it seemed fun, and a nice way to meet other bloggers.
The rules are simple. The invited participant composes a one-time post. 4 questions are answered and then 4 other bloggers are invited to create a post, answering those same questions.
I dutifully made a calendar note to create a post, but then … I forgot to invite others to participate!
I must apologize to Emilio for only partially fulfilling my role as participant. Please check out his post about the Virtual Blog Tour.
And since we’re talking Tours, why don’t you visit a Displaced Beachbum. She’s traveled the world and is currently touring Scotland.
Jo the Tart Queen is another blogger whose posts share delicious sounding recipes and beautiful photos from her travels.
So … the Answers to the 4 Questions in brief:
What am I currently working on? I’m continuing my growth as an amateur photographer and am so happy to have been included as one of the photographers in a new B&W Photography Blog called Monochromia. Please visit the blog and check out the great work of the participating photographers.
How does my work differ from others of its genre? I have no specific goal other than to improve and no specific subject other than what draws and attracts my eye. I do like to travel as much as I can and many of my posts are about the things I see from the road … short, local trips and longer, more adventurous ones.
Why do I write/create what I do? Simply put: It’s all about the joy, the fun, and the opportunity to be creative in a life filled with work and structure.
How does your writing/creating process work? Oh gosh … let’s see. Something draws my attention. I pull over, crawl around on the ground, climb a ladder, fence, or bed of the truck, or slide down a riverbank, and shoot and shoot and shoot. Once I get home, I just pray that something worked! I do edit but not extensively.
Thanks Emilio for inviting me to be a part of this tour!
