I spend a ridiculous amounts of time in front of my computer typing my thoughts in a semi-private blog, so I thought it might be worthwhile to channel those energies into a more formal and structured outlet.
This blog was born from a break up, but I hope it grows to much more than that.
I love the intricate, interconnected patterns that tree branches form, especially those of rain trees. Huge, over reaching canopy of beauty above, one picture made out of a trillion details, one tree with innumerable branches, leaves, crevices, different stories from different angles. Order in the chaos, simplicity in complexity, untold beauty in the commonplace, unity in variety. Visual beauty representing a beauty that goes much deeper, a beauty and truth that transcends.
I like photography and aim to post photos.
I like ideas and throwing them about in philosophy, though I’m not formally trained.
I enjoy singing and drawing and writing.
I love nature and animals and being outdoors.
I feel strongly about environmental issues and LGBT rights.
And because of some recent major upheavals in my personal life, I presently also find myself engaged in issues related to religion.
I’ve been trying to organize my posts better, so here’s a breakdown of the type of entires you might find here (by categories, which can be accessed on the right hand side of the home page):
Any post which feature my original drawings, doodles, paintings or perhaps even crafts I will put in this category. Most of the time I tend to make Artist Trading Cards, or ATCs, because they’re more convenient to do. You can also check out my ATCs from the navigation bar above.
2. Biodiversity and Nature
Any post that features or talks about animals, plants or just nature in general will be here.
3. Exploring Ideas
This is where I expect most of my post to end up. Previously tagged as ‘opinion’ or ‘philosophy’. These will be posts in which I explore ideas and concepts, sometimes to expound my own opinions or sometimes to question and figure out what I believe. May be reflective or philosophical in nature.
4. Expression in Words
Here you’ll find original poetry or poetic prose, or you might want to call them pseudo-poetry. I generally only write this sort of thing if I’m feeling particularly emotional or depressed, so there probably wouldn’t be too much of these. (Hopefully!)
This label doesn’t tell you about the type of entry, but the content, so it will always overlap with one of the other categories. However, as this is a main theme on my blog, I think it deserves its own category. Anything and everything to do with homosexuality, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or non-mainstream gender and sexuality issues.
6. Personal Musings
The second most common type of entry will probably be this. These entries will be shorter versions of entires in ‘exploring ideas’, expressing a random thought which crossed my mind without delving too deeply into the issue. Alternatively, they will also feature musings (or whining) of a more personal nature.
This should be self explanatory. Posts that contain my original photography.
Like ‘LGBT’, this a content category, because it’s one of the main themes on this blog.
Shares refer to sharing and linking content from else where on the web, where the article, video, quote, image etc that I’m sharing is the main point of the entry, or acts as a significant springboard for the entry.
I hope thats helpful! Thanks for stopping by and comments are always welcomed. :)
