And So It Begins….

February 14, 2011

It’s Valentine’s Day and contrary to my initial plan to celebrate this commercial holiday through the mass consumption of chocolate, I instead decided to start this blog.  I had been contemplating the creation of this blog for three years, but somehow I always found a reason or an excuse not to start it, until today.  I am thoroughly excited by the prospect of having my own page on the internet where I can speak about things that are important to me, but I am also feeling a little nervous at the thought of being judged by what I write and how I write it.  I’m not even sure what kind of theme or structure this blog should have.  I guess I’ll just make up the rules as I go along and see how it works out.  One thing I am quite sure of is that my mother will be thrilled that I have finally started this blog, as she has been nudging me about it for some time now.  I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if she turns out to be the only person who reads it.  I’ve started writing this blog so many times in my head, but I have never written any of my ideas down, which is a shame, because now I am not at all sure what to write about.  Should I write a little bit about who I am?  If you read the section of this blog that gives a short biography of myself, then you already know that I am a filmmaker/ artist/ writer.  If I were to give you a more personal account of who I am, then I would describe myself as a woman in her mid twenties, and, like many (or even most) people my age, I have absolutely no idea what I am doing.  I have no clear long-term goals at the moment, but there are certainly many things I want in life, chiefly, I want to live a life immersed in the arts.  Art in all its wondrous forms is the only thing that has ever interested me.  It’s really what I live for.  As an artist, my world is the world of my dreams.  And in this way, the world of my dreams is a part of my reality, it is my truth.  Filmmaker Akira Kurosawa famously said, “Art is a lie that tells the truth”.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to start this blog.  This has truly been the best Valentine’s gift I could have given myself today.

Thank you for reading! I can’t wait to share more with you in the future.

    This looks like a solid beginning for you. New beginnings are wonderful. I like the photographic images on the edge. Keep up the good work. Remember the quote “I will believe the truth about myself, no matter how beautiful it is.”
