The first one
To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which is doing it’s best, night and day, to make you everybody but yourself – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight – and never stop fighting. – E.E. Cummings
Hello! Thank you for joining me in my first foray in to maintaining a real web presence, and on my journey in self-discovery and creativity.
In reading The Code of theExtraordinary Mind by Vishen Lakhiani, I found he defines a state when “you’re truly at peace and in touch with yourself, that nothing anyone says or does bothers you and no negativity can touch you.” Along with this concept and Dr. Susan Jeffers wisdom on the concept of Fear, there’s really no “better” time to start a blog than now.
Anything you put on the web nowadays is subject to countless eyes and opinions, all judging in various degrees. Well, I need to get over that because now I have a blog (!) and it’s going to be a creative space that’s all mine.
My posts won’t be about living your best life because that’s definitely not my area of expertise. I’ll post about traveling, books, exercise, podcasts, cooking, etc… things that I find enlightening or interesting, and maybe you will too.
Now I’ll take a few moments to answer your burning questions:
Q: Where was your site header photo taken? I took this photo in Cusco, Peru. It’s one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. The colors are magical.
Q: Is that a nutcracker AND a menorah in your profile photo? Yes. I was raised Jewish but we also grew up doing non-religious Christmas activities with the other side of the family.
Stay tuned for more posts!
