I’m still navigating my way around this whole new world to me…like a babe in the friggin’ woods. Forgive me some “in development” content :). Presently using my mobile Android can’t seem to upload a profile pic, so many menus and tabs and blabs but it’s all good! I’m so excited just “to be starting something” new.
Blogging…been told many a time “you should start a blog, you have a way with words and such an eye for snapping pix,” etc…terrified the bejeezus outta me…yet not unlike Opening Night of a new show (performer) I also had the butterflies of nervous excitement knowing you’re about to step off the ledge and fly…or fall flat on yer face. A lot of faith is involved…as I’m sure you’re aware. Point is just to start where you are. Right?
So here’s me Julia Manuel jumping off the ledge – weeeeeeeeeeee!
My main reason for starting a Blog? To share my photographs. And I imagine a little writing will involve itself too…I love photography. Everything about it. The whole process from beginning to completion. Very meditative. Being present is a work in progress and taking photos is a grand way for me to do so. I lose my self in it my ego lets go AND I get to express my self too. WIN!
Point being, I’m not a professional photographer. I seek to learn, share, grow and support others in their journeys. I welcome positive constructive criticism, direct or winding makes no difference to me…and I hope you will share your creativity with me as well. Maybe someday I will do it professionally I’d love to. Being a professional actor mostly in Musical Theatre has been a simply extraordinary life. But, it’s time for something new.
I leave off with the immortal lyrics of the man whose image plastered my walls as a pre-teen much to my Uncle’s dismay. Forced to sleep in my room for lack of a “guest” room, he wrote, “More shocking than a tooth extraction is waking up to” the King of Pop, “Michael Jackson.”
