New Obsessions

book:  In Praise of Shadows by Jun’ichiro Tanizaki

I was so surprised when I came to blogger to write a new blog post,  and saw that my last blog post was December 2016.  I guess that old saying, TIME FLIES, is true.  I remember when I used to be obsessed with Flickr… looking for artists to follow and finding wonderful imagery… and I still love my ‘favorites’ there (which you can find at my sidebar).   Then Pinterest came along, and my time and obsession moved to pinning fabulous images and finding wonderful artists… and I liked the process of pinning images into categories making them easy to find.  During this time, I still found time to write my blog posts, look for artists to follow, and leave comments.  But this past year or so, I started traveling so much more as I taught workshops all over the U.S…. and now I am leaving soon for Australia and New Zealand to teach workshops there.  So my blog has gone almost silent.  And now I  have moved on to my new love… Instagram.  I like taking my own images and posting them and finding new artists to follow there…. a new obsession.

So Instagram has become my new obsession…  and the images I am posting here are some of my posts that included a book…. some of my favorite books, arranged with some of my favorite collections or obsessions… I seem to have a lot of obsessions!

Breathe by Jean Hall

I do want to recommend BREATHE by Jean Hall…  which includes simple breathing techniques for a calmer, happier life.  Breathe helps you to increase energy levels, improve your sleep, instill a sense of calm, and reduce stress.

Hope in the Dark by Rebecca Solnit

I also recommend HOPE IN THE DARK: Untold Histories, Wild Possibilities by Rebecca Solnit.
