It's been a while since I have written a blog especially one where I express myself. Lately my blogs have been kind of superficial and that is not what I wanted when I started. I realize that blogs evolve and change but sometimes they have to have a course correction back to where thy were intended to go in the first place. When I first started I wanted to use my photographs to illustrate my life but I wanted the blog to be about my life and how I cope with my disabilities without it becoming a poor old me (POM) blog. This blog has become more about the photographs and less about me so I started another blog www.young-eclectic-images.blogspot.com/ which will be about the photos and how I did them. I'm going back to using the photos here to illustrate my life and since photography plays such an important part of my life there will still be plenty of photos.
The change in my blog came about gradually but really started when my husband who reads it faithfully and has learned a lot about me and we have had some wonderful conversations started because of this blog, but he told me at one point that my blog was becoming a POM blog. Well maybe it was but at the time I was dealing with a LOT of pain and the blog was telling the truth of my situation. However I take my husbands opinions to heart and from then on the blog slowly became more impersonal, more about the photos, and further apart. This blog has been so helpful to me and hopefully entertaining and helpful to others and I miss what it was. When I was in high school I had a history teacher who taught us first and foremost that history and the truth of it depended on what was told and how it was told but also it depended on what was left out. Lately I have been leaving out a lot of my truth and if at times this becomes a POM blog than please remember that in spite of the pain in my life I still believe there is much beauty in this world.
