My little indulgence

I began this blog five months ago with a specific goal. To "put it all out there." To unleash all that was forcibly contained within. Truthfully, I had no plan, no intention. Since the time I originated goal, I have become aware of my intention--to write--to focus on producing. I'm still contemplating and studying vehicles of book, script, or whatever.

I'm not one who needs structure nor schedule. Should the day arrive that I need to produce according to structure or schedule, THEN is when I'll be concerned about those beasts. And to me, they are beasts. For the time being, I wish for more time to write and will be focusing efforts to accommodate that wish. To that end, I have decided to abandon my photography business at the end of this year. (Note...starving artist sale is going on NOW at my fulfillment site -- so anybody who may care, please consider purchasing a print. As sales occur, I may be able to maintain that site for the rest of the year (which would be nice).

So, as I have indulged myself with reading and/or following other blogs, most are so impressive, literate, informative, and/or inspiring, I realize that my little blog is purely my indulgence of self. I am considering presenting a "real" blog, one that would be more suitable to my professional goals. So, if you visit me here, know that this is my beginning, my introduction to this world of expression and sharing, my personal indulgence. When the face I need to project requires more sophistication and professionalism, then I will worry about the content and presentation. For now, you may choose to join my meanderings and my whims, or not.

I often bring up my blog in a background window, insert my earbuds, and work away at whatever project requiring my attention and intention. Sometimes, like now, I even take the time to add a new post on whim. After all, this is my little indulgence. You are welcome to join me...or not. Either way--be blessed.

And thanks for popping in!


  1. DiDi - congrats on dedicating yourself to following your dreams. I checked out your photos - they're quite stunning. Have you considered putting them on a stock photo site like istockphoto? That might bring in some revenue while you're changing gears. You have been such a supporter of my writing and I want to say a big *thank you*! I wish you all the very best in whatever you decide to pursue next :-)

  2. Thanks PJ. I not only appreciate your compliments but also follow. The istock is something to think about. Its funny--when I decide its time to quit I'm getting folks approaching ME about shoots. go figure...right? lol I think you're an awesome writer and love reading your posts. I only wish I had more time to read more of them. I on earth can you manage a family and find time to do all you do online tho...must be that wonderwoman cape...justsayin'...
