Why are we here ? Please introduce yourself :)

I think it best for me to introduce myself again . As I wander through this project of learning word press and all the side bar issues that come with having a functional blog I live and learn ( hopefully like all of life) . I recently got introduced to Word Fence plug in and now wondering who are these “people ” that keep trying to log in as administrator to this site ? How distracting life can be when we attempt to make delicious  stuff and reality sets in and we have to deal with the dirt of life. Sound familiar? I guess I need to understand better how to create my sign up so you can introduce yourselves to me!  With that said I would love if the subscribers or any visitors that feel inclined post a response : How did you get here and what  are you ideally looking for from this blog ? I started this blog knowing full well that the mavens of marketing and blogging and blah blah blahhhhing say focus on a few topics in your blog site. SO what is the fluid evolving reason for this blog site?  Connecting my art ( both photographic and Chakra healing paintings  as part of my Chakra healing project ) to  my writing  as I focus on other of my life passions : organic gardening/sustainability, creating delicious recipes, finding new ways of healthfully getting out / staying out of feeling mind /body  dirt and being more delicious!  I have a lot to say and more to show. Where this site goes is fluid . Professionally I have been a photographic artist for decades. I have within the past 4 years years started working with abstract acrylics and working on creating the Chakra Healing Exhibition Research Project . More on that another time. I am looking forward to the exposure this blog has as a venue leading to support of my projects and also assignments, purchases , exhibition space. There is no shopping cart set up here ( yet) nor amazon connection ( yet) but I am considering them as options in the future. Thank you for being here. I would love to know what brought you here and what you would like to see more of and well… more about you!
NOW, please introduce yourself  🙂 -Guggenheim_entry5789©_2015_Copyright_Linda_Enger_Photography

Gardening analogy – one of many, lemons and my life.

I keep experimenting to see what REALLY works for me in life. Been doing it as long as I can remember.

When I see what works for someone else I can not help but wonder if it will work for me too.

I plant and see what happens.

I get caught in the process when I am really into it and loose track of time.

I keep working on  growing deep roots

I am so grateful when the results I am working for actually happen

I keep trying

I guess I am too foolish and  obstinate to know when to give up. More on that later.

Despite how much certain aspects of the work seem to be hard on me or/ and for me … I keep trying a way to either ignore it, find a work around, or just keep complaining about the pain and keep doing the work … right and not just find someone  to pay to do it!

I know if I have all these thoughts…. others do as well.

These lemons are just a few of oh so many I have harvested from our neighbor’s tree . Really not the best image for this analogy?

Thanks to our dear neighbors there has been lots  of lemonade, and varied dishes using the lemons….  and art as often as I can think to take the time.

Wondering when the lemon tree we planted last winter will bear fruit. Just covered the ground with more home grown compost and lama dung. ( another post), and free wood chips before the big rain hits.

OK- photographically…. I found that workflow for  this image  in Light Room  to On ONE did not give me the quick and easy results I had hoped for where LR to Photoshop  worked much faster for the clean up .
