Calendar of events that I find interesting, along with items that some of you have pointed out, may make it onto the calendar.
There may be a reason to create a more private space for the site. If I decide to go there, this area will hold some details on access. We'll see...
I have a new hosting service for my site. My last site was hacked and it was easier to just start over. So here I go...
This is my little island on the grand Internet ocean. I make the rules, post what I want and entertain myself and perhaps a few of you as well. I have several hobbies and activities that occupy my time. I'll poke around in a few of those here. We can discuss them, share ideas and spread the joy of shared passions and work out some of the frustrations, as well. We might even find a few fixes along the way.
If I were to describe myself to you, I would use the phrase: Endlessly Curious. The main reasons I even have a site are; a) sharing stuff with family and friends, b) providing an opportunity to collaborate with other folks with similar interests. I'm hopeful that we'll get the chance to learn from each other as you wander in and out of here.
This is probably the oldest hobby I practice. I have been taking pictures and creating images for about as long as I can recall. The bug really caught me in Junior High, when I joined the photo club. I was fascinated with the technology as much as the ability to record events and craft images.
To be sure, as an admitted geek, I'm much better with the technology than my creative flow. But I figure, if you don't try,you'llnever learn and I'm all about learning, practicing and getting better.
I've recently joined a couple of the meetup groups for Seattle and Phoenix. This should put me in touch with a few like-minded folks that are into improving their skills with their equipment. If the policy allows, I may post some of the events on this calendar and link them back to the appropriate groups.
As I think I've already said, I have several things that occupy my mind and grab my attention (shiny object syndrome). Sometimes their random, temporary things, Wait, was that a squirrel running through the yard? Other times, they can be lifelong passions, photography, the outdoors. I'll see what I can do to bring these ideas and diversions to this site. With any luck I can get your attention on the shiny object of the day and we can have a discussion about it.
I'll use this section to stream these topics. If I'm smarter than a 5th grader, I may be able to leverage the blog and forum capabilities of this site to share and learn from and with you. Good times!
