Shadows of the Present

This is a test photo I snapped messing around with lighting one day when it was still fairly cold out. It’s my shadow and the closest you’ll get to seeing my personal photos until I feel comfortable posting them. (Unless of course you follow my private Instagram, then you get to see all of that lovely mess that is me.)

Some of you that visit me regularly may’ve noticed a slight change in my tone of writing lately. If you’re super-observant, you may have even been able to pick out, I haven’t quite been myself.

As I’ve stated somewhere in my older posts, I’m a very emotional person. Often, those emotions seep into my writing.

If I’m feeling sad, it flows into my wording. If I’m happy, you may notice an up-tick in my frequency/online presence. If I’m angry (queue the dramatic orchestra) I might be venting here & quite fragile.

My apologies to anyone that has suffered the wrath of my moodiness. I’m only human, and much like I put in my “Daily Daydream” the other day:
“We’re all unfinished works.”

  1. My less than happy moods seep into my writing. Not on my blog so much, but in my books. I can always edit later. But our moods help us to be better writers. For the most part, I like feeling things deeply. It may not always be pleasant at the time, but I think it helps as I write characters and want to convey their emotions.

    I think I am all caught up with you now, dear DD. I don’t know what this week will bring, so have no idea when I’ll be back, but I’ll be back. 😉

    1. It is a therapeutic process for a lot of us, I think. I appreciate feeling things deeply as well. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

      & We certainly have our lives to juggle as well. I’ve been having the same issue. I look forward to your return. I always love my Maddie visits. 😀


  2. “We are all unfinished works” – i loved it! Every true artist is an emotional volatile person, otherwise s/he is not an artist! 🙂

    I was just thinking yesterday that i’d be interesting to see how you look in reality haha! 🙂 Proceeding to your instagram 😉

    1. I’ll e-mail you some photos, Sofia. As for here, it may be a while before I share personal photos. I have my reasons. I’ll explain it all here someday. 😀
      (You already know these reasons, though.) 😉


      1. I do, dear, and totally understand! Just be comfortable and safe ♥

        By the way, i had hard times committing to my gmail account, so I switched to hotmail for all friendly correspondences 🙂 Write me there! 🙂
