Food for Thought
Lately I have been ponder over this space and my creative doings.
It all started with my Ravelry account, actually. At that time one did ask for an invited and it took a few weeks till one got an email of acceptance- I got mine on my birthday three years ago. I stated reading several knitting blogs- and upon advice of several knitters I stared my own. It so happened that I just got totally inspired by the rock pools in False Bay. To document this I used my little Nikon Coolpix- which was the beginning of my discovery journey of photography.
So here I am three years later. I started knitting since then, bought a better camera, taken thousands of photos, still making jewellery and finding my inspirations from my surroundings. But also I am wondering where to go from here....
My biggest problem I always encountered is that I am fairly alright in many things but not exceedingly good in anything. Since I can think I have been searching for the thing I am good in- until a few years ago that is. I had told a friend about my dilemma and she laughed and said- but we all like that it is only the very few who are exceedingly good at one thing, they called geniuses.... So I just went with the flow.
The flow brought me amazingly new skills and discoveries. And left me with some question marks.
Is it ok not to have a completely marked out carrier? Where do I go next? Can one somehow unite all these different skills or bring the somehow together?
For now I have decided to make a little list with some resolutions and goals. And more importantly to simply accept the fact that I am a little jack-of-all-trades and enjoy my creative goings not matter what.
Now coming to the subject of my blog... it is a total reflection of me creatively. So a jack-of-all-trades. I tried to bring some more structure into it...but every time I do, I feel rather stuck. My question: is it interesting that I blog about photos, food, colours,knitting, jewellery and who knows what?! A blog with the only aim to document what inspires me and what is happening creatively at the moment? Still pondering about the blogging thing... let me know what you think!
