Guest Post For JJL

A brief interruption in the series on photography to let you all know about a guest post that I’ve had published over at Joyful Jubilant Learning for this month’s theme: Learning From the Movies. I chose to write about the New Zealand film Whale Rider and how it helps me to appreciate a sense of place.  There are already some really lovely comments over there, so I really recommend you go and check it out!

If you’re reading this and you’ve just arrived from Joyful Jubilant Learning – Welcome 🙂

You may want to check out my About pages: About Amy and About Lives Less Ordinary, both of which will give you an idea of what this blog is all about.  Please do feel free to kick off your shoes, make yourself comfortable while I go and pop the kettle on.  I do so hope you’ll stop for a browse and a chat!

    I’m so glad you came and wrote at JJL Amy, especially with such a thoughtful piece.

    Only thing is – you know we’re going to want you to come back now…

    Joanna, you got that right!

    Amy, mahalo nui loa for the gift you have given to all of us at Joyful Jubilant Learning today. As I had commented there more fully, it was personally meaningful for me as well.

    And to all your readers, if I may wear my hat as the managing editor of JJL for a brief moment, please know how much all of you within Amy’s thoughtful community of readers are welcomed at JJL as well!

    I love your “series”. It’s really inspiring and I shall start using my camera more often. Thank you!

    Thank you, Joanna. You know, the first post I ever read at JJL was your post about Alice in Wonderland, and I just loved it so much. I knew I was going to have to pull something special out of the bag to be worthy of such a great community of committed lifelong learners 🙂

    Thank you so much for having me over at JJL, Rosa 🙂
    It has been such a lovely experience and one that I would be only to happy to repeat in the future. Also thank you for extending such a warm welcome to my readers!

    Well, I’m so glad you’re enjoying it, Ivanhoe, and if it has inspired you to carry your camera around with you a bit more often, then I have achieved what I set out to 🙂
