My embracing on-line-marketing has just now become birthed. For a long time Diane has encouraged me to do this and I’ve put up barriers. Recently, Diane and I participated in a craft fair reasonably close to where we live. We took almost everything we have that was ready for displaying and selling. Many, many and many items were brought down two flights of stairs and mathematically placed in our small hatchback car. Now we’re ready to drive to our ultimate craft fair destination. Luckily, we were able to park right by the booth. I unloaded items and Diane placed our images on the two tables. At the end of a looooong very hot day and not selling enough that would buy a dinner at our favorite Asian restaurant, we began to ‘break down’ our shop of creative imagery. Packed up the car and drove home. Our wonderful much younger than we are neighbor gleefully brought up all of our wares to the top floor. We were so grateful of her generous kindness. Thank you, Jessica!
After that day I turned to Diane and said, I want to participate in on-line-marketing – show me how, please. I’m tired of the schlepping!!
P.S. If there is a doubtful reader out there about on-line-marketing give me a shout. I’ll happy to share with you why you ought to consider it.
You can see this Rembrandt esque photograph in my Etsy Shop. It’s on SALE for another couple of days.
I’m so delighted Spring has finally sprung.Â One glorious morning I began driving through the back roads of where I live and saw this magical reflection image.Â I parked my car, took out my tripod and camera – click and click again – here is what I captured in the early morning glow.
Today I met with another woman photographer.Â We spent two hours sharing stories about photography experiences, parts of our lives – we seemed to have much in common.Â I felt we had a good connection and plan to continue our new friendship.
Framed bouquet of hanging flowers showered in the afternoon sun caught my eye as I was driving along a back road in Whately. I stopped to take the photograph and wanted to share it with you.Â Susan Elkin
This image is part of a series I did during the early morning hours. I was always intrigued with this factory landscape and its water reflection greatly enhanced its wonder. Tell me your thoughts. Thank you.
“Distance makes the heart grow fonder” – I realize it’s been a very long time since I’ve posted and to be quite up front I was greatly nudged by my west coast buddy, Sue. Blogging doesn’t come naturally to me – yet.
These last few months have been focused on dealing with a ‘cancer scare’ that was inappropriately, prematurely diagnosed by an oncology gynecologist.Â After four weeks of incommunicado from the doctor’s office I started telephoning to talk with the doctor – eventually, the nurse offered some information prefacing it with “I can’t speak for the doctor.” Never did the doctor herself call me.Â A very short version of this rather scarey saga is, I don’t have cancer.Â I’m very, very happy that things are so far well.
I’v been working passionately on my screen play and it’s going quite well.Â My cousin in Connecticut has volunteered her editorial services to me – I send her various scenes and Ev sends me her input.Â She tells me she can’t wait to know what happens next.Â I take that as a positive sign. Ev doesn’t sound like she’s finding it boring.Â If I may say so myself, I feel it’s quite a well written script.Â The play is about half way to completion. I take great joy in writing it and look forward to it being produced.Â When it’s just a leap away from being shown at your neighborhood cinema I’ll definitely give you a head’s up. The story is about about a thirty-four year old woman named Sarah whose life is mired in chaos. She gets a job as a ‘homemaker’ and befriends one of her clients who is eighty-six years old, named Mary, whose life is the total opposite of hers. Mary’s life is serene and content. Two women from opposite world views and experiences come together to create a beautifully poignant, charming friendship. It’s an exciting story.
Â After the screen play is written I’m off to three additional ideas I have in mind – two of which I’ve already started but found difficult juggling writing one thing, then a book about customer service to a children’s television series.Â I decided to concentrate on the screen play to it’s completion.
I’ve just recently became part of a women’s writing group and our first meeting is November 19th.Â My inner landscape is quite excited about this opportunity.Â Will keep you posted about how things are going in that arena.
Let me know how all of you are doing.Â I may be appearingly invisible, but you’re always in my heart and often in my thoughts.
One chilling wintry day I looked outside the window to the enclosed glass paneled front porch and saw the panels appear to be concaved and contain “eye-like” formations on the glass panes. I asked Diane to stand where she is to create a wildly mysterious human effect.
The mirror reflections of the woman’s face creates an intriguing illusion of beauty which remains. As we know, there’s nothing more constant than change and one’s physical appearance will always be changing. During each stage of physical maturity, I feel beauty remains a constant, but it is not defined by Madison Avenue. Beauty is defined by the eyes of the beholder.
