This morning I took some pictures of Victoria Park as I walked the dogs. I realise it's been almost a year since I posted a similar picture - when I began to use a camera and to write online as well as on paper.
I began blogging to share some of my life with people in Melbourne I didn't see so much when I moved to Ballarat. However my friends and family didn't read it! They preferred letters and phonecalls and visits.
But I came to love the process of looking closely at my day, using images to focus my words. I read other blogs, followed links, learned a lot, and I found some writers whose posts became a vital part of my day.
A few days ago I took another step and put out a few comments. And I got some back. Thank you! I feel full of spring, like the yellow lilies in the park.
