If you have read any of my posts before, you may know that I am somewhat of a procrastinator when it comes to things like publishing posts on my own blog, or sending out holiday cards in a timely manner. In fact, it’s down right pathological!
Two months ago (actually, its more like 3), one of my favorite bloggers called “Monochrome Junkie” wrote a post on her blog that ignited a fury of thoughts and feelings I had no idea existed within me. She is a totally bad ass photographer who takes amazingly insightful, and thought provoking photos. In November, she wrote a post called “This one’s for you, kid”.
My reaction was something like this:
Sob blobber blubber sob …. All I’ve ever wanted … Sob blobber blubber sob … was to inspire someone … Sob blobber blubber sob … and make someone laugh … Sob blobber blubber sob … so that all my mentally clumsy mishaps and uncalled for neuroses … Sob blobber blubber sob … weren’t for nothing … Sob blobber blubber sob.
I had no idea that the afore mentioned ability to inspire or make people laugh was all I’d ever wanted, until I read her post and it all came gushing out of me! There may have been a little extra estrogen infused in there, too, but more on that later…
Thank you, Monochrome! Not only do I now have this beautiful photo to hang in my house, but I also have something that reminds me of you and your encouragement. You constantly inspire me to keep going, even if it is late! Click here to see the photo!
