Welcome to my Secret Garden….won’t you come and sit a while?
My biggest passions in life are: TRAVEL : READING : WRITING
I see the world as my playground, providing me with all of the inspiration and opportunity I need to indulge in these passions. I have an insatiable desire to be everywhere and see and experience everything! As exhausting as that may sound to some, I can’t seem to get enough.
Travel and reading have always been a huge part of my life. Just recently, I have started to write. The result of an overwhelming feeling that there are living, breathing people inside of me who will not wait one moment longer to take their first breath on a page. And so, I have started to write about them.
Where it takes me, I do not know….BUT I’M EXCITED!
When getting ready for a writing session, I have found that I can be flooded with a million and one ideas just by looking at one really beautiful, whimsical picture. ( I discovered this whilst sitting quietly on the deck, flicking through an old picture book showcasing the art of Jim Warren). Due to my extensive travels around the world, I possess a rather comprehensive library of amazing photographs taken by yours truly. Now, I am by no means a photographer, but I have a fairly decent camera which kindly does all the hard work for me. The element of beauty found in my photos can be fully credited to the subject matter, with zero credit given to my very amateur “happy snapping”.
I have always wanted to share my photographs, rather than keep them hidden away in the far back corner of my hard drive. So, coupled with my new-found desire to write, I will be adding posts to this blog which include one of my photographs, along with a few inspired words. I believe this blog will be a great writing exercise to enable me to flex my writing muscles and generate those creative sparks, with the ultimate aim being to achieve one of my lifelong goals : To write and publish a novel or 3! But of course, baby steps first!
Please feel free to provide feedback and advice on writing here. I greatly value any input on offer.
So, once again, welcome to my secret garden. I hope I can, in some way, provide you with a little inspiration each time you visit.
