The fact that I have not blogged since May 17 makes it obvious that I am a little challenged when it comes to being consistent. I have the best of intentions, yet for some reason I do not always follow-through. Why not? I think the main reason is because I am easily distracted. I'll get excited about something new and dive in full force, then before you know it I've abandoned that pursuit for something new.
My latest interests are gardening, photography and drawing. My balcony garden is in full bloom right now and I enjoy sitting out there. When the two fountains are running it is my own private oasis. Sometimes I sit out there with my camera and try to capture shots of the birds that frequent the surrounding trees. When the birds aren't around I photograph different views of my space like this picture of the copper and brass fountain (now I have plants in those pots sitting behind it--I'll show them to you another day.
As for the drawing and sketching, I've played at teaching myself those skills on and off for a few years now. I'm finally beginning to see a little progress when I compare things that I have recently drawn to the ones that I did back then. I'll scan something to post one day.
Finally, there is this blog--I'm not sure why I feel compelled to jump on the bandwagon and join the blogosphere, but I do. Who knows? perhaps eventually writing here will help me develop the self-discipline that I need to be consistent. :-)
