I love visiting blogs where people write about their passion. You can always tell where a person's heart is by what they write about and the images they post. It is like taking a peek into someone's soul.
It has become harder for me to come up with inspiring posts about decorating, fashion, and make-up and while I have plenty of these posts in my archives non of these compare with those of you have made these topics your life's work. Those of you who have studied design and thrive on the architecture, placement, and the design of a certain period or style, or those of you in the fashion industry who know the right kind of scarf, shoes, dresses, tops, and jackets to wear with what and of course those of you who re-design, re-work, paint and work with antiques. All of you are nothing short of inspirational and your creativity comes out in your work. This is where I fall short because it is not where my passions lay.
My passions lay in social issues and my writing pushes me in that direction. Life for me is about the children who through no efforts of their own, go hungry or lack the opportunities that are often not afforded to them, the working poor who try to get ahead and somehow always fall short and the homeless.... people who are sometimes looked upon as the throwaways, the ones that have chosen a life on the streets because it seems a safer bet than the shelters offered to them. This is where my soul takes me...writing about these issues brings out what makes my soul sad, these issues that lay beneath the surface of everyday life, the ones we seldom talk about or want to address.
So, my posts will be taking a turn with posts about inspirational topics and stories... and who doesn't like a good story! Just like those of you who inspire me with your interior design, fashion, antique, d-i-y and beauty posts, I hope these articles give you cause for pause in your busy days. That's not to say, you won't see fun and light-hearted posts and the occasional craft or design post to shake things up a bit too but is my hope, that I can through my writing on these topics, shed some light upon and bring some inspiration and hope to those who might somehow feel deserted and left behind.
I hope you will continue to visit and leave comments because I always love to hear what you have to say and your personal views as it relates to the topics I write about. So, on to the New Year!
