A Different Angle 2

Taking the camera with me a lot lately, finding that looking through the lens, framing light and color, is a break from the ups and downs. (Here, from the back of a convertible on the Bay Bridge–which I’ve crossed innumerable times, and never taken pictures of.) Writing and walking a lot too, finding pause and rest from mood swings in putting words to page, walking up and down hills.

Listening to new music, The Boxer Rebellion, loving how their beats and voice resonate with my moods.

Thinking about a series where I post pieces of writing I’ve been working on here, once a week. I like the free flow of blogging, that captures where we are, today, in photos and words; but I also love reading blogs where people post more crafted writing, less often, and have imagined doing that here. I think of it as a way of developing and sharing something from the pages and pages of writing I do every day and never show anyone.

    Beautiful photos. Simply gorgeous. Isn’t it funny how we get used to the beauty around us and forget that it is breath-taking? I would love to read the writing that you are working on. But I hope you don’t get boxed into having to have a polished piece every time you post. I love the conversation just as much as the beautiful sparkling words. I am so glad you started a blog! I look forward to your posts already.

    I’d love to read whatever half-baked (in a good sense!) writing you have in progress! I’m glad you’re back to blogging again; I hope to get my own works-in-progress out to the ether this season, too. Let’s all keep the grand conversation alive.
