My new distraction is Pinterest. It is really clever for people who are interested in crafts, decorating, fashion, hair, nails, make-up, etc., but I am into the things you have to write about rather than the things you look at. I have had fun assembling some kite pictures, dogs, bread, Christian writers, Carnival--click over here to see what I did, but I wanted to give all the details and make comments. This is the place for me.
I don't know what to call myself; less visual comes to mind. I'm not good with fashion and trends. They look great on others, but I have neither the vision nor desire to pursue them. Ideas and meaning and consequences are the trails I like to follow. It all goes back to my mother and my father. They liked to read. Somewhere along the way, I caught the bug too. Writing something that communicates with other people is fabulous. Not that everybody agrees--no, it's a conversation, an argument, an exploration--remember, it's communication. The pictures and images are too, but they are not my medium.
