A post worth reblogging to inspire further conversation, Paper or E-books?
Today being one of those wonderful, late September sunny days, warm enough to sit outside and soak up the tranquillity of the country, I decided that my afternoon perambulation required the inclusion of a cup of tea and a little something.
Excellent summary of what it is and takes to be creative. Challenge, Practice, Be interested and be interesting,
I have been looking forward to this day since first registering. The appeal of being able to write uninterrupted for a whole day, in a different environment, and sharing ideas, well really what’s not to like?
But best by far is the enjoyment of being able to explore my local area and find beauty, shape and structure in the old, the great, the bizarre and the beautiful. To absorb new ideas, mull over dormant philosophies and stretch the imagination, toning mind, soul and body to be healthy in the whole sense of the word.
A fine list, some I have yet to read. Sharing books, ideas, art and culture. It’s all about connecting the world.
One of my ‘forbidden’ pleasures is to go to auctions. Walking into a room with a myriad of items, on tables, hung on walls, hanging from the ceiling and those delicious ‘boxes’ to be rummaged through under the tables gives me goosebumps.
Wanted to share this as it is so poignant.
But I’m used to it. ‘bin living like this for ’bout a year now, on account of my parents gone. Went to live with a stranger, they said he was me bruvver, but he didn’t act like one. Isn’t a bruvver s’posed to look out for ye, and do right by ye?
But today is different. Today I am going to speak.
