I am not back as of yet, just posting my photo of the week. I am getting some of my novel done at the moment – the back story of Raynard the vampire. I am also reading an inspirational book called the War of Art.
I appreciate you all still being there, and understanding whilst I am away.
My time at the moment is extremely limited. I am only just having time to write blog posts, I am not even having time to take photos. Normally I take over 1000 photos a month. Since about October, those have been dropping. In December I managed to take a little under 400 photos, and at over half way through January, I haven’t managed to reach 100. There are only so many photos of seagulls, the sea and the moon I can post.
So I am taking a break from blogging for a while. I am not sure how long for. It may be a week, it may be a month, it may be longer. I need time for my offline activities. As several of you know, I have been writing what I hope to be a novel, and that has been neglected for a while. I am hoping to have the time to get back to that.
I will miss you all. I will see you when I get back. Thank you to the 2,242 people (and bots) that read my blog – or at least clicked the “Follow” button. I appreciate your support.
No matter where you go in life, there are things around you that you don’t notice. Things that allow you to live, to breathe, to walk, to run, to laugh, love, lay, win, smile. Things we take for granted. And things that ultimately, are the same things that – metaphorically – are inside us. Look at the plants around you. They started from a little bulb or a little seed, and they fought their way through mud, dirt, grime. Battled weathers, and even survived birds. And what happens to them? They become these beautiful creations. What about caterpillars? They are these creatures which inch along with rolls of … something … avoiding birds, creatures, everything before going into a dark area. And in that darkest of dark places is where the transformation happens. When the plant emerges from the darkness, it becomes a beautiful flower. When a caterpillar emerges from the darkness, it becomes a beautiful butterfly or a beautiful moth.
When you emerge from your darkness, you will be so much stronger. You will have so much more strength. You will be so much more beautiful. Know that you WILL come out of that darkness.
These today are from a video I putting together. The phrases and quotes have come from a variety of places of the last year or so.
