When I first started this blog I honestly wasn’t sure what I wanted to say or about what. So I picked creativity and the first several posts reflect that. But life comes along necessitating the need to be off-line more than on. As you can see by the obvious infrequency of my blog posts.
My posts illustrate what I want to talk about or share. Not just creativity and creative endeavors, but all the different reasons why we do what we do (as well as, sometimes, my personal thoughts on a particular subject) I care passionately about our present condition in life and our futures – All of us.
As just one of more than 8 billion humans on our planet, it astonishing me that I am unique onto myself – as are you. And not so astonishing is that we are far more alike, in many more things, than we have even yet begun to realize.
Perhaps I can close that gap. Bring us just a little bit closer together with some of my thoughts and insights as so many other writers, photographs, artists, musicians and other people just like you and I are currently doing on their blogs, vlogs and other social media platforms.
We all have a common purpose here. To connect with one another on a global level and to share ourselves. To be creative, to explore, each other and our surroundings – the essence that makes up who we really are – both the good and the bad.
Blogging, in many aspects, has turned out to be the perfect way to accomplish this. So there you go – I am a blogger, like millions of other bloggers.
I hope to encourage and inspire. Inform and enlighten but most of all connect with as many as possible. Bring us, perhaps, a little bit closer to each other.
Thank you for dropping by, hope to see you again,
The very best to you,

I wanted more people to come and meet you so I am happy if that occurred! Keep posting and visiting other bloggers, they will gladly follow you! Once again thank you for visiting me, I appreciate you very much my friend, Penny
Your blog sounds intriguing. Thanks for signing up to follow my blog and for the like.
You are most welcome Tracy. If I like the look and feel of a blog I follow. Makes me feel even better! 🙂
Curiosity is a wonderful thing! Thank you for being curious enough to check out my blog, and for signing up to follow me! I hope that you find my blog entertaining, informative, and fun! –B
My pleasure. As I find the time, I enjoy visiting other bloggers. Some I find entertaining but don’t hold my interest. Some I like right away. Yours is one of those. Your wit, the flow of your words, your photography, yes it easy to hit the follow button! 🙂
Why thank you Penny for the lovely compliment! You take care and hugs! — B
I still need to look around, you know. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a little slow at that- likely because of the dreaded procrastination bug, and my own mild introversion. I had to drop by anyway, to return your favor and take a look around. I like your writing style, and I must say I approve of curiosity. I suppose I’m curious myself, after a fashion. No, that’s not true. I must be curious- what is a lust for knowledge but curiosity pushed towards its limit? I love learning new things and meeting new people, and I’m, as I’ve said before I’m sure, always happy to see another friendly face around my site.
So thank you for dropping by and, as we’re all going somewhere, I hope your journey is pleasant and just bumpy enough to remain interesting. Safe travels, knowledge-seeker.
Thank you for the visit, good luck to you also in your travels. May your journey be as fulfilling as mine has been todate. Which isn’t too shabby by anyones standards (lifes unfortunate events not withstanding). Be well and take care of you!
What a clean, friendly, and expressive intro. So what made you leave the blogging world for so long? Oh by the way, your “BeLOnG” art looks fantastiqe on my mantle 🙂 I think its the best looking image in my home page 🙂
Yes I read your last entry. No worries, life moves on, we can go with the flow as best we can or not. All about choices ultimately isn’t it! I did lose my ‘glass half full’ for awhile but it’s back and blogging with people such as yourself is greatly helping to keep it there. I may even have to get a backup half full glass if this one keeps overflowing! HA! Thank you so much Chris for being concerned, it is appreciated by me, Penny 🙂
Just to say I like your premise and love the BeLOnGing and I am now following 🙂
Thank you for following and also for your generous compliments. I appreciate them very much! 🙂
Thanks for the follow Penny! I wonder what is the why all the time, both with respect to myself and others. Look forward to reading more of you!
Thank you so much Kate I hope I won’t disappoint you. 🙂

Thank you for stopping by and the following 🙂
Saw you on ReconstructingChristina and just dropped in for a quick look-see.
Have just scratched the surface but some fascinating stuff.
Looks like you have had some rough times, even by life’s sometimes bizarre and totally unfair standards.
Glad to see you overcome them.
I will come back to read more.
Beautiful blog, Penny. Thank you for visiting. I will also enjoy following your page!
What an interesting introduction and yes i think that your choices
of subject matter will prove highly informative, of course the whimsical
side will add some humour, perhaps even a zany twist, but to find out
even more iI will have to retuen and have a more lengthy visit 🙂
This will be on your morrow as I am leaving for the morning now, but
as the Terminator always used to say… I’ll Be Back 🙂 Have a fun evening…
Sorry about the dreaded typos, i think that
my keyboard is having a mid life crisis 😦 lol
Hello Penny :). I am glad you have discovered me :D. I’ve read this about page of yours; unfortunatelly have no time to read more right now as I am packing for my holidays. I will now click the follow button to be able to visit you more when i get back in 12 days :). In the meanwhile keep writting and I you feel like it, go through my posts to discover more of my “thinking”. Very nice to have met you. My best, Paula
