Filtered vs. Unfiltered

These two images were sitting in my folder from a few days ago. Upon brainstorming for titles, a thought came to mind.

There’s been some new eyes on this place recently. Some more family members even found this place. I’ve heard many bloggers and site owners talk about feeling “filtered” in their writing, if they thought certain people would be among readers.

I always had a feeling the subject of filters might come up here and my answer is simply this:

I don’t feel the need to sensor myself for family, hackers, or whatever malicious (forgive my expression) asshole out there. You have all just been too kind and loyal to me for me to go and change things now. Why would I do that? So many wonderful opportunities have come directly from being somewhat spontaneous.

That’s my take on the matter anyway.

So that’s how these two daydreamy, cloud-gazing lovelies got their name. I hope you enjoy them. They go up to my gallery at Snapping Turtle Publishing soon. (Which also has some new additions!)

How to you feel about “filters”, verbal or otherwise? Do you prefer being filtered or unfiltered? Which of these photos do you like better?

Happy Friday!

Leave the Lights On

Dearest Readers,

It has come time for me to make a decision. I will be taking a much-needed blogging break until January 2015. There are many reasons, but the main one has to do with my family. As I told some of you last week, I simply would like to focus on them for the holidays. We had a little health scare a few weeks back. Those events kind of brought things into perspective. It only seems right that I take a quick breather.

You may still be able to find me here:


I’ll most likely be checking in there and/or responding to comments. (I always love our discussions there. It’s like group therapy.) Come and visit us!

I’ll be temporarily shutting down Daily Daydreams and Sleepy Sundays. They will (of course) resume upon my return.

I wish all of you a very happy, healthy holiday season!

Leave the lights on for me!
