no, that’s not my age. though i’ve been rocking the grey streak in my hair just to prep myself for attempting to age gracefully. i have nothing against dyeing those greys, but i don’t want to do it to “hide” anything…
no, “50” is about this being my 50th post here. i was curious what others have written about on their 50th post, so i googled “50th blog post” and got all sorts of hits. many have contests, give-aways, profound thoughts and deep insights into some topic or another.
me, i got nothin’.
i have no contests, unless you count moderating the one where 3 kids fight for our 2 beanbag chairs (should’ve really splurged on a 3rd beanbag chair).
i have no give-aways, unless you count my words and photos here. i love writing. i love taking photos. but i know very little about photography. my brother-in-law is a photographer, amongst his many other talents. he takes incredible photos. plus he knows how to process actual film and stuff. if my SD card gives me trouble, i may be tempted to shake it like an etch-a-sketch hoping to put the pixels back in order. but beyond that, i’m stumped. i’m not a photographer, i’m a point-and-shooter. it is so much fun, and i’m learning all the time.
i have no profound thoughts, except what i most often say: “creativity is contagious,” (with “no, we do not eat dirt! spit it out, pteh ptoo yucky!” being in a close second place these days…)
and no deep insights, other than i’ve found that doing what you love, and striving to do it well is as close to a guarantee for personal fulfillment that you can get. since my first post here, i have gotten to know so many of you who do just this. that’s been fun and inspiring, thank you.
but here is what i do have: the luxury of doing what i do. creating, writing, sharing. it really is gravy when i don’t have any of the struggles so many people do around the world: to be safe, to be healthy, to have a home and a life. i have all of that, and a blog :-) where i can write freely. 50 times and counting…
