Postcards and Snippets

Autumn, the new season has arrived -- for me, that means the thrill of new beginnings. Which is why I've been thinking about how I'd like to update and enhance my blog.  I started three years ago by just 'jumping' into this cyberspace world of wonders. And like any skill, the more we learn and develop in it, we like taking on new projects to challenge us.

Over the past few months I've been pondering, dreaming and envisioning a look, format and theme that helps me to be more focused, yet allows me to develop in other writing areas of my heart.  All still related to living a beautiful life -- because in essence that is the theme of my life.

In that light, I'd like to introduce one new segment on my blog I've chosen to call 'Postcards and Snippets'.
It's the place to share thoughts that are snippets -- a bit, a scrap, a morsel -- of thought and feeling, maybe a tiny jewel, yet unpolished.

But if I wait -- which I have done so often in the past -- the idea, which sometimes is as fleeting as a soap bubble, will vanish if I try to fashion it into something more substantial.

Besides sometimes we don't need -- or even desire -- it to be full-fledged.  Our hearts know how to catch 'nuances' even if the thought isn't said perfectly!

For me, so often it's a passing remark in a book or conversation -- very often the proverbial rabbit trail -- that turns out to be a tiny jewel in uncut state that, upon catching its glint, changes my day or week  into something beautiful and winsome.

So watch for these.... they may be posted often or not.... after all one never knows when such a snippet will show up!

Wishing you the joy of dreaming new things!



  1. yes, i know what you mean about fall and new beginnings. summer here is so hot i went into "creative" hibernation. now that it's starting to cool creative juices are flowing and i'm starting to blog again, and will soon head out with camera in hand too :).
    i love your "postcard & snippet" idea - sometimes that's all there is to say! looking forward to reading them :)

  2. A good idea that to catch the thought before it floats off in the breeze and good luck with it. I'll be interested to find these snippets of yours to see if they are anything like the snippets of mine.

  3. What a great idea. I am thinking about doing this with my Spirit Whispers soon, just letting them pop up from time to time. It is sort of the same concept.

  4. Sometimes all you need is a snippet.
