Links Less Ordinary 5
Can you believe that this is the 5th edition of Links Less Ordinary already? Where does the time go? The weeks pass by so quickly, but thankfully they bring with them some truly inspirational writing. Here’s what I came across on my internet travels:
- The lovely Miss Gala Darling always writes such fantastically upbeat, passionate, positive posts that visiting her blog is like stepping out into the sunshine. This week was no exception when she shared a wonderful piece called The Constant Gardener:
Allow the Universe to be your gardener. Sit back & have a cup of tea. Watch as new seeds are planted in the fertile earth. Your gardener is making room for even more fabulous things to sprout & come to fruition.
She’s also recorded it as a podcast which you can listen to here.
And somehow, I feel a weight has been lifted. I don’t need to worry, fret or be fearful. I don’t need to be there, at all. Here is enough. There will be there when its time has come.
- Karen Swim was also pondering moments; however, she was focusing on the power of a moment, and as always, she articulated her experience, her thoughts, and her conclusions so very beautifully:
Like the thunderstorm, our thoughts, attitudes and actions impact the landscape and people around us. As we rush about through our days we may forget that we are connected to the world and people around us. Every small encounter has an impact. In other words we matter, so our words, actions and attitudes matter too.
- Lodewijk had another fabulous post up at How To Be An Original. This one is called How To Get Unstuck and contains some suggestions for a range of completely fabulous creative activities to get you unstuck:
In this post you’ll find a handful of actionable things to do that will help you change that perspective and may inspire that breakthrough thought.
If they don’t…well then you had a lot of fun anyway
The last 3 links I want to share with you this weekend all helped to promote last week’s photography series, The Fire of Images. However, they actually did a lot more than promote my series, as all 3 added something wonderfully precious to the conversation: their unique perspectives.
An appreciation of editing: I haven’t edited my photos up to now but I am keen to learn and experiment, both to produce better results and to learn the read-across for the writing process. What are we editing for? The techniques are different but the answers might be similar: clarity, impact, emotion, power, resonance.
- Secondly, Bo, over at her lovely blog, Seeded Earth, has put together a list of three blogs, Lives Less Ordinary included, which have had a recent focus on photography. She’s called it Everyone’s Doing Photography! With inspirational photographers such as Bo around the blogosphere, I’m pretty sure they will be 🙂
Crouching down, standing up, zooming in and out with a telephoto lens, moving to different parts of the same field…….not only does all that let you see what you’d miss if you just walked or drove by, but it let’s you see the world differently, let’s you see it as if for the first time.
So, there you go – another wonderful haul from just a few of the blogs I visit every week. But before I go, I’d like to give you just one more link, which is to my guest post over at Joyful Jubilant Learning called Whale Rider: Homeward Bound. I do hope you like it!
So what have you been reading on the internet this week? Any inspirational posts you would like to share?
