CFFC: Twisty or squiggly

Another mighty fun gallery put together for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, ending with my favourite twisty image of all times.

I clearly remember posting several twists of fate already, including the last shot of today. It was the post Simple twists of May 2017 when I lost my front tooth to chicken. Today I add several fresh photos, the majority of which are from this year.

In the meantime I have just read an interesting post by Amanda about blogging and journaling. This was my comment:

“Interesting subject. I kept regular diaries between ages 11-15, which I took with me upon moving to Tuscany just because I’d be sooo ashamed if somebody found them. Between ages 16-25 (approximately) I kept a scrap book where I collected sayings, song lyrics, one-line descriptions of my days. After that – nothing. Only at age 44, eight years ago, I started blogging and my blog is my diary and my scrap book in one. Last May I started to include blogging memories at the end of my daily post, looking back at all my posts from the same day in history. I know that nobody reads old posts, and I don’t think many click on the links to read mine, but I do. It’s been really eye-opening. At the beginning I was SO much more upbeat, bubbly, chatty, I told the world so much more than now when I merely show photos with short captions. Sometimes I can’t believe an old post I find: I don’t remember writing it and it’s so good! Funny and quality writing. So – even if nobody notices a thing, I’m keeping myself entertained, amused and inspired. Isn’t this great?”

I wish you to do the same: keep yourself entertained and inspired. After all, it’s the least we can do.

This day in my blogging history

  1. I’ve thought the same thing about my blogs- diary and scrapbook each one. I like your links to posts of the past. There is a different perspective on events in looking back and it can change with each reviewing. I have the photo album my mother made for my first couple of years. I always have enjoyed looking at it though so many are gone now who were featured in the pages and I am a grandmother myself now, but each viewing strengthens me to go on. I think your look backs do the same, it seems like.

  2. Also, I too look back at old posts, and wonder who wrote them. And my old art alway surprises me. We don’t think we change, but the history of our blogging shows a a different picture. Truer than a diary I think. (K)

  3. Ah yes, I saw your reply to Marsha and I think your point about keeping ourselves ‘entertained, amused and inspired’ is spot on! I love your twists and turns, especially the octopus and lighthouse steps 🙂
