Silence is not Golden

I do not want to just look at the world. I want to participate

We read, we write, we speak, we listen, we look. Who notices? So much goes on in the world and we can do nothing but observe. How can we make a difference – even a small difference?

I had a WordPress blog some years ago and I decided to discontinue because I was so busy living life and working that I did not have time to make myself heard by writing my blog. Today I changed that. I came back to WordPress.

I have things I want to say. I want people to hear, read, and understand why I say the things I do.

It bothers me that there is so much injustice in the world. So much poverty. So much illness. So many conflicts. So much grief. I feel frustrated that I have no voice in the world and I cannot make myself heard above everyone else’s voice. I do not want to make myself hoarse by shouting above the voices of my friends, my family, or the rest of the world.

In the calm of my own room I will write. Someone may read my words. They may be ignored.

The important thing is that I have a place where I can shout as loud as I want without uttering a word. I want to travel the road to speak as I wish no matter where it leads.

And someone may notice and make just one change for the better.

I'm a creative woman, totally hooked on photography. I like nothing better than to be out in my car finding new places to go and new subjects for my camera. I have a serious side too. I try not to let it stop me enjoying my time out with my camera with my friends and those closest to me. I like to write and I love to take photographs. This blog is a wonderful way to combine the two. I hope you find my blog interesting and enjoy visiting regularly.

  1. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
