I am not sure what my blog is, really, honestly! It is probably the rantings of a deranged mind but nobody is perfect not even I- or is that me? I started writing a blog, not this version, to be able to find a voice for some of the thoughts in my head that wouldn’t go away and so that i could find some space for new thoughts and in someways i have managed to do that. Although the the crazy ones occasionally all try and speak at once still, and it leaves me all a bit confused.
However, I have recently read lots of ‘how to’ blogs and they normally say pick a theme and then see where it leads. The problem is i don’t seem to be able to do that, no matter how i try to do so. In fact one blog suggested that you write several blog posts in front and it is my desire to try and do a little of that, then if something happens and i am pushed for time i won’t have to leave a blank. However i do feel that some people follow me under false pretenses!?!
Let me explain. You see i love books and i love to read and i read wide and far and i have gained a number of followers for that fact alone; in fact it has been quite astonishing to me how many people do follow me for that reason. However that is not all of me. Another part of me is that i am a Christian and try to live my life in such a way that others see that i am different and wonder why i am different, although a little imperfect too and sometimes i write about my faith too; people follow me for that reason too. Then i love to take photographs and there was a time when i would photograph just about anything, but then life became too sad to think and i stopped, but this year i am hoping to start again (and that!)
I also live a simple life; part through choice, part through necessity. I also enjoy good, simple food and love to try out new recipes and twiddle them a little bit to come up with something else on the same theme. I now suffer from bouts of IBS and need to eat little and often and simply too. In a world that seems to thrive on fast food it is often difficult to eat well, in fact it is almost seen abnormal to want to eat well and eating out always seems to be on a run, which is not good.
So you see although my life is slower and living is simpler i am not so sure that i am any less complicated than i have always been. So during this coming year expect some things about Jesus and his teachings through my ‘Way to Be..’ posts, some food ideas, and recipes, some photographs more about the 333 Project (Courtney Carver – Be More With Less) and other simplifying ideas and plenty of books – I know i am a little behind but i have just bought the Hunger Games!
All i can say is ‘stay tuned for more rantings from a deranged mind.’
