My Story

I always dreamed of being an author.  A photographer.  A world-traveler.  A champion.  A musician.  An adventurer.  A creator.  And a long and oddly disconnected assortment of other ambitious and far-reaching versions of my imaginative perfection. 

If I were to be the best that I might be, I would be the kind of woman who never gives up on the world, nor tires of chinking bit by bit to make it better.  I would be a person who continues, despite what hits the fan, to spy and snatch the best.   I would be someone who doesn’t give up, who squashes fear with aplomb, who rips off the dress covering the nakedness and ends up standing, whole and proud,  looking (naturally) quite good.

In my vision, I would take the sum of my experiences, subtract the misgivings and doubts, multiply a few delusions of grandeur and then divide by the hardest lessons learned.   With that, magically, my dreams would gel, my eclectic way of becoming the best and perfect me, that dream I’ve long-held, would equate.      

What I do here is connect back to the equation inside, the mishmash of things I like, combining what brings me meaning with slices of what  I do or do not understand.  Deep as I make it sound, it’s really just my way to keep dreaming.  You, reader of my blog, keep the idea of being an author, photographer, traveler, champion, musician, adventurer, creator and all other such dream stints alive.  Thanks be to you.

  1. I have read your posts with a feeling of sharing your insights into some of the things I also enjoy most.and no less than marveled at the pictures there. Needless to say i have subscribed.
    I’m not sure how this works but i’m looking forward to reading your future blogs.
    I enjoy writing vignettes about some of the things in my life and I’m trying to find a place to park them along with some pictures. I’m not sure if this place is for me but from I’ve seen so far I like it..


  2. Hi winsomebella,

    I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award because I enjoy and admire your blog. There are some rules that go with it. I broke one of them, but I don’t think anyone will notice. If you have done this before or it’s not something you really want to do, file it away. I understand.

    Here are the rules:

    1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
Share 7 things about yourself.

    3. Pass this award along to 15 recently discovered blogs you enjoy reading.

    4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

    Thank you for all your great posts and pictures.

  3. Hi Winsomebella (love the name): I noticed you subscribed to my blog and I dropped by to thank you. How did you hear about my blog? I’ve checked out some of your posts which I really like (especially the picture of the snow-covered puppy). I’ll definitely stop by again. All the best.

    • Hmmmmmm…..I think it is kind of like your name… the hell did I end up there?? No, seriously, I saw your name on another blog and clicked and enjoyed. Thanks for stopping by and nice to connect with you.

  4. Thank you for your recent subscription to Thoughts On Theatre. Nice to have you as a new reader! The French language is one that’s near in dear to my heart and I love how you have used the term “collage” to describe your writing here. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen so far and will now be subscribing so I can be sure to keep up with your posts in the future. All the best.

  5. Lovely blog, very inspirational. I cried when I read one of your posts about the woman who learned to love herself. Your writing is poetic and soothing.

    Thank you.

  6. Winsombella . . . thanks so much for checking out my blog and liking my recent post. I’ve just started getting into photography as a hobby and love the pictures you’ve taken (especially the desert shots). I very much look forward to seeing and reading more!



  7. Good morning!
    I know that you have received many awards already, but I hope you won’t mind one more. I have nominated you for the Beautiful Blogger Award, because your blog is so lovely both visually and verbally. I have some info on my “awards” page on my blog (although I’m sure you know the drill by now!)
    Anyway, congratulations, and thanks for your inspiring posts!
