There is a lot to say about me and why blogging is both an intrigue and a nemesis of mine. I love the idea of being able to talk with people all over the world, share values, ideas and philosophies. Tell funny stories, uplifting tales. Display beauty. Seek wisdom. The internet is a living breathing library, a growing record of human thought. But for all of that, when it comes time to put post something I never know what to say. I take it too seriously. I try to craft a message for the ages.
That, I am discovering, is a bunch of hooey. Life is all about having fun, so I’m going to do a “having fun” blog. As I find things that are interesting, unusual, uplifting or just plain good ideas, I’m going to pass them along to any one who wants to read them. I hope you enjoy it. Drop me a note if you do. I would love to hear from you.
One of the things I like about being part of the blogging community is that you end up going on such interesting adventures. One of the most interesting bloggers I’ve found is Twisted Sifter, a curator of beautiful and amazing tidbits. Described as “The Best of the visual Web, sifted, sorted and summarized”, it’s awonderful place to visit. But be careful, you might not want to leave.
On a recent visit, I found a blog about 360 degree books that are being created by Japanese graphic designer and architect Yusuke Oono. The books contain 40 laser cut pages that can be fanned out to view a whole scene. You can also look at each page individually. I think the books are spectacular.
