self discovery – an expedition through some life issues – and other random thoughts
Because I’m exploring some issues and have made a conscious effort to be honest, I’m keeping my identity to myself. Suffice to say I live in New Zealand, a land of hills and mountains, forest and sea. There is a reserve behind my house which is filled with trees which are home to a number of native birds: tui, wood pidgeons, fantails and waxeyes, all of which I love. I have a love of forests and trees, and enjoy exploring.
I have chosen this medium to explore some of my own issues and beliefs, and I am finding that I am learning about myself as I write. I also want to write to remind myself about what's important to me - character and values: being authentic, kindness, compassion, integrity, honesty; who I am; how I see myself; what I believe. I often use quotes and sayings as a means of expressing thoughts or ideas, or just as a reminder of what's important. I have discovered a love of photography and so create quotes using my own photos - and enjoy playing with light and form, colour, tone and texture.
I think life is a journey, so feel free to join me for the ride.
