Sometimes, I imagine my own life as a series of snapshots taken by some omniscient artist who is just keeping track- not interfering or saying anything , just capturing the moment for me to look back at it again later…This is the way it is, the photograph says, and I nod my head in appreciation. The power of art is in that nod off appreciation, though sometimes I puzzle nothing out, and the nod is more a shrug. No, I do not understand this one, but I see it. I take it in. I will think about it. If I sit with this image long enough, this story I have the hope of understanding something I did not understand before. And that, too is art best art- Dorothy Allison



Positively Purging-I welcome your feedbacks in the comments and your likes and passing the real life wisdom on to others as I embark on this new venture of “positively purging“, as I know each of these pieces represents something…

    Very interesting post. In one of your snapshots I can read on the cover of a magazine ‘ depression and aging. On a plate ‘pain au chocolat et des gousses de mandarine’. I believe you can write a beautiful story with these moments. Love your post. Food for thought and writing.

      Interesting that “snapshot” stood out to you. That breakfast was a wonderful act of kindness. I also do truly enjoy my quiet moments of continuing education and Social Work Today is one of my favorite academic magazines. That issue was excellent because I like to be kept abreast on topics such as depression and aging as many of my clients deal with these issues daily.
