Quietude's Junction

Bio: I'm an introvert in an extroverted world. I find beauty in things that few ever see because they don't pause long enough to see it. I teach for a living, but art of all kinds consumes me. I thrive when I create. I delve into all different types of art whether it is writing, food, drawing, jewelry, or any of a myriad of things. Cooking is a passion of mine. I love just about all types and styles. Right now I'm fascinated with Middle Eastern and Asian. So, you may see recipes inspired by those areas. Another major passion of mine is costuming combined with bead work and embroidery. I plan and create costumes as well as jewelry. Currently, I've been working on the jewelry aspect since I love beads. The curious thing is that while I thoroughly enjoy creating jewelry, I rarely wear any other than a ring or a bracelet. Writing has been my outlet, my joy, my pain, and my therapy since I was in elementary school. I remember in third grade asking if I could write poetry instead of the stories that my teacher continuously asked us to write. I was lucky. She always agreed as long as I completed the assignments. Journals, poetry, and short stories abounded from then on through college. My first publication was in high school with a poem that I was told was excellent while too jaded for the high school audience. The committee asked me to reconsider it, that it did not suit who I was. My question back was, "Why color the truth?"

    Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Been away for a while, but now I wanted to catch up and say “thank you… I really appreciate your ‘follow’ as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.”

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…
