WordPress has asked the question, What inspires you to blog?, and requested a photo of us engaged in that activity.
I began blogging to share my experiences as an electrician who has worked his way across the U.S. over the course of 44+ years. What I discovered was that I had a multitude of experiences and interests along the way that came forth from the shadows of my memory bank once I started opening up and sharing my life.
Photography and art have been passions of mine for years, but they were pushed aside for too long by work and lifestyle responsibilities. I am finding more time to indulge in those pursuits and it has added an extra shot of joy into my life. In short, blogging has given me a chance to connect with myself and share that person with the world.
The photo below was taken by my co-worker, Jim, in March of 2001. I have very few photos of myself and this one is one of my favorites.
