I was recently catching up with a dear friend of mine, a writer and world traveler, and I expressed my frustration at trying to blog and “keep up”. Keep up with what she asked? My own expectations and perfectionism of thinking I had to be posting all the time or never. Keep up with knowing what to write. Wanting to write. Picking what to write about from the many options that I have. Being inspired.
Her advice to me, keep it simple! Write something, even if you don’t feel like its amazing. Choose a photo, a single photo, and write a quick bit of info about it and share it; even if it isn’t a perfect masterpiece. Remember, this was supposed to be fun?
So I’m going to do just that, choose a photo and share the story behind it. For now it will be a weekly thing, but we’ll see where it goes from there.
I loved the trees at this beach on Maui. The bleached standing trunks stood out against the blue of the sky and water and the green of the jungle, giving them an elegance the landscape around them didn’t have. They also have a sense of longing, for what I was unsure but on a small beach on the way to Lahaina I could feel it.
