Well, the best laid plans of mice and men ...
Always wanted to a place for a daily brain dump. Just never thought it would be a public space like this blog. So here goes.
Starters: What is the purpose of this blog? I can only guess how it will evolve in the future but for now it is simply a small corner of the universe that somehow records and remembers the ideas and thoughts that endlessly sift through my consiousness.
Why: A daily blog is also a daily habit. As with most habits, (brushing teeth, putting a few miles on the elliptical machine, playing tennis with my daughter), it takes discipline to get started. Inevitably, habits become easier to start as time goes by ... they become a part of one's daily routine. The other thing about most (good) habits is that they created a feeling of a "job well done", even for the most mundane tasks.
Framework: At least for now, I will try to focus on topics and ideas that are somewhat related to photography, art, being a photographer/artist, latest projects, etc.
Feedback: Although I appreciate feedback from folks that see the universe in a similar way, my primary goal is to get stimulating feedback from folks who see things from a completely different headspace than mine. My only criteria is that feedback is constructive, not petty or destructive.
Inspirations: For many years, I have been recieving artist Robert Genn's "Twice-a-week" letter. This one page "brain dumps" from Robert are always a treat to read. They are always thought provoking, controversial and often humourous. Check him out and consider recieving his twice a week letter (free) ... always a treat for me.
