I am not a writer. I am a woman with a challenging 9-5 job who needs a creative outlet and writing is what I do to to recompose. I write about things that move me in one way or another. I write to reflect on the world around me. I write on a whim, putting down whatever comes to my mind. I should mention that the banner image on top of this blog is part of a surrealist photo by Anja Stiegler (see post of April 2, 2012). It depicts a girl sitting on a swing that is attached to a cloud. I like it because to me it expresses a kind of dreaminess, a childlike freedom, a sense of being suspended in a moment. And perhaps that is part of what this blog is about; fantasy and reverie. But the blog is also about life in a more concrete way. I like to vent. So there we have it! The blog is a reflection of who I am.
Addendum, May 30, 2012: I simply have to add this paper-cut version of my avatar (and of Anja Stiegler’s picture). This was created by Nicole Belanger Smeltzer, the incredibly talented and innovative creator of the blog The Middlest Sister. She posted 50 paper-cut interpretations of avatars in celebration of having reached 5000 subscribers. See my re-blog of her post dated May 29, 2012.
