Follow Great Footsteps Inspiration
I don’t know if any of you wonder why the hell I give so many shout outs. If you do here is the reason:
It is a really good way to actually get to know the person behind the blog and it builds up more intimacy.
Yes, it involves effort and looking at what others have to say but I’m nosy and far too curious. I want to know everything and everyone. ha ha
Sounds creepy- maybe it is…
If I am ever at a loss to write something – you lot inspire me and I am not some knob head who won’t give credit to my inspiration.
Simple as that!
I know my posts can seem like a mixed bag. I am not one to conventionally follow rules. So mixing things up and not doing the same thing -the same way -all the time- keeps me interested.
MINI LIFE UPDATE:
My G goes for his detached retina eye op on Thursday morning. Not sure I will be around much. We will only find out how severe his post recovery surgery will be once they have operated and found where the tear is.
Hen do is on the 21/05- Saturday. I’m terribly excited.I get to drink cocktails and eat good food!

Today’s quote made me think a lot. I like to think.
(Singing ‘Arabian Nights’) It comes from a place in a far away land where camels and (forgot words) roam….. – silly Daisy.
It comes from Anna from –Life As A Bipolar Artist- A place for venting, explaining, and maybe learning something.
“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.” –EDGAR ALLEN POE
“Telling the whole terrifying truth certainly does give words power, I think it connects us all in some way or another. Also, I have to appreciate the phrase “exquisite horror” from an author who clearly loved his dark side, despite the trouble and struggle it caused for him“
Why do I love Anna?
Because she expresses her darkness with such finesse that it almost seems like a great place to be.
Her art and her exquisite expression of all things malade, make me feel drawn to visit ‘the Maison de Sante’, like some character called Doctor Tarr The methods of expression(treatment if you like) employed are intriguing .
to find out that this place lets the patients revel in their madness and are at liberty to roam free is even more fascinating.
The true horror is to find that the asylum has been over thrown by its patients. The lunatics are posing as the professionals.
A great idea in theory but not something I think I would enjoy in practice.
Read Poes -fine piece The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether by Edgar Allan Poe (published 1856).
What I have learned about Anna is just how easy it is to misinterpret what a person means in their writing. I am not at liberty to explain this cryptic part of my post, as it genuinely is not my my story to tell. I am merely a character in it.
I can show you this is how I became involved in Anna’s journey – I clicked on this The beginning of Terror
and saw this.

“This will be my last post for a little while, so I thought I’d leave you with a sense of how I’m feeling with this picture. It was inspired by some strong feelings, the kind that are strong enough to leave you numb. I don’t like to admit when I am feeling less like myself than usual”
What I learned from this post.
If some one says they are going somewhere or won’t be in touch for a while have the sense to ask why.
THANK YOU ,Anna for joining in
Finally, I won’t get a chance to give all the new flowers in the community a shout out on Thursday so this is the part of my post that is full of inspiration and community and awesome epicness.
