PlayPennies Loves...Slugs On The Refrigerator

21 November 2010

blog1 This week PlayPennies loves...Slugs on the Refrigerator - if only for the name alone!

I'm trying to think of the best word to describe this blog: insightful is one word that springs to mind, but it's not really what I'm trying to explain.

Gentle, is another but it's still not right.

There's just something about the way its written that really leaves you feeling as if inner-most thoughts have been shared - not the ins-and-outs sort of inner most thoughts that would be TMI for a Sunday afternoon, but almost the internal random musings on 'stuff'.

This is the sort of thing I mean, from the Notes About Creativity post...

"...and in the midst of it all, it dawned on me.  Creativity isn't communing with angels or being visited by the muses.  Its about hard work and learning. Sure, there may be a spark...a good eye or a dab hand.  But the the fire only grows with a lot of stoking and fuel.

One of the better examples of this for me is how photography has developed in my life.  Until recently, taking good pictures was largely a matter of chance.  It wasn't until I decided I needed to LEARN how to use my camera and photo software that I began to be able to take many of the pictures I see in my head.  I started reading my camera manual (whilst stirring risotto).  I try and take a picture every day...and slowly things improve.  I still have a long way to go, but the point is, I am working towards it."

As a photographer, I can relate to this - I've been there, and it never actually goes away; it just becomes 'different'.

Go and meet Kat - an Iowan transplanted in Scotland with a Scottish son and daughter, a South African husband, 2 cats, one goldfish, and a couple of slugs. Baby Oops will be joining them in April 2011 - you'll be very glad you did!
