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!

So ,I still have a couple more quotes to share that people have shared with me on #FollowGreatFootsteps

“READ ALL ABOUT IT HERE FIRST”

Are you ready for the blurb bit?

DO YOU HAVE A GREAT QUOTE TO SHARE FOR #FOLLOWGREATFOOTSTEPS ?

I’m always looking for great quotes so if you have one that is unusual or unique -let me know in the comment sections. I will make sure I post your quote/ folk tale/proverb/ in #FollowGreatFootsteps category and I will send a a direct link to your page:)
A GREAT WAY TO GET YOUR BLOG A SHOUT OUT TOO!

*OPTIONAL* -add a short or long comment about why you love a particular quote a simple word or to on what it means to you.

Why do it?
Who doesn’t love a good quote?

Bringing inspiring quotes into our conscious minds gives us the chance to try and adopt that quality we love in an inspirational person

DAISY XOXOXOX

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:)

ANNA 

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 .

Then,

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.

Anna said:

“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

publication11Finally, 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.

  1. Wise words as always. And I love the idea of shout outs. I’ve never done one. Do you just put people’s blogs as links? Do you ask them first, or do they get automatically notified?

    Have a great time at the hen night – you deserve it.

    • thanks hun. The shout outs for this specific post are to all the cool new blogger who have decided to stay and chill in the Willows community. I am very blessed for each and everyone of them. I don’t usually notify them because I am a rubbish business woman . ha ha….. I have thought about dropping a link to let them know – in fact I might still do so. 🙂 A lot probably don’t know I have thanked them for following me in a post. Good idea! Thanks xxoxo
      I can’t wait for my hen night. 🙂 So excited! xx
