Just a Note … May 10, 2014

Hi!

Ok…I’ve been around or so it seems…that is I’ve been posting and if someone happens to comment, I answer you.  But basically, I’ve been absent.  I haven’t been reading the reader and most of the notifications that come to me directly get recycled when I’ve got a thousand or so that I can’t possibly read.

Some of you, like Jen, Oliana, Oriana, Barb, Charles and Eric as well as others like Justine and  Aquiliana, Al and Michael keep coming around as usual … other’s have gone elsewhere.  I wish to thank you all for being you and being such loving people too.

Today I had a few moments and read a couple of my notifications and I  am really upset.  Rarasaur, one of the greatest bloggers around has been imprisoned awaiting trial.  Her bail has been set at a sum so high ($275.000) that it will mean she’ll have to sit in prison awaiting trial (the 26th of May) … for what reason except pure meanness … I can’t imagine, as she herself allowed them to imprison her (she gave herself up), so I don’t think she would have skipped out of the county as she could have done so before …  ergo … why such a high bail?

Why am I writing this post?  I don’t really know except that I just feel so upset that a person whom I’ve read and chatted with is going through so much heartache and sorrow.

People, I live in a world of my own … and I often make that world cozy and soft, because the world around me is hard and full of nettles.  We’ve all got problems, it’s not that I don’t know it, but in my cozy world, my problems never seem so terrible compared to what I see daily.  Of course, that’s not at all true, but I don’t share my problems and when I do, I’m surprised at the reaction of others.

Please read Rara’s post…please send your best wishes and support.

Ciao, Bastet.

 

 

Today is International Label Day!

I just read Rarasaur’s post and discovered that today is International LABEL DAY!

Here…read the post:  International Label Day!

And how would I label myself?

Italy

Italy

 

Well, first of all I live in the north of Italy and feel very Italian

 

 

 

 

 

New day

New day

Blogging and writing has meant a dawning of a new day for me!  I’m so many new aspects of life!  I’m the beginning of my own new day!

 

 

 

 

 

Late blooms

Late blooms

Although a late bloomer, I’ve discovered the joy of photography and writing stories and poetry…something I never tought I’d ever do!

 

 

 

 

Work in progress

Work in progress

Even so, I’m still a work in progress…I haven’t fully understood exactly what my place is in a world of art, or in fact if I even have a place at all.  I’m unsure of my talents and abilities.  In fact, I think that although I’m really getting on in years, I’m going through a second adolescence.  With all the doubts of that period of life.

 

 

Imagination

Imagination

But, I’m full of imagination and enjoy experimenting, both in writing and in photography!

 

 

 

 

 

And you, how would you label yourself?
