Well, I thought I'd kick off the quirky brunette with a line from 'December in New York' by Thea Gilmore. Here's the amazing lady herself as a neat little intro:
I decided to migrate from my previous blog, Amateur Eye, because, erm,
Also I was hugely intimidated by the fantastic blogs I follow when I can and each one seems to have its own aesthetic that Amateur Eye lacked. Amateur Eye seemed restrictive. It worked at first as an appreciation of photography which is one of my great loves, and then branched out to film, then to music and then sort of outgrew its own brief.
This afternoon on Facebook one of my friends was considering the fact that people do tend to define themselves by their jobs. So, you meet someone new and the first thing they're likely to ask you is, "What do you do?" And immediately you'll define yourself thus: "Oh, I'm a teacher/editor/photographer/vet/gynaecologist/tree surgeon". OK, that's what you do between 9 and 5 (figuratively speaking). After that, what do you do?
And more importantly who are you?
I'd like to use the quirky brunette as a hub of happy. A little base camp for the things I love, which I want to share as I see, read or hear them. The things that really define me.
