I’m on a Mission

Day 1 & 2  Behind the Scenes “When you have something to write, get on with it.” So, that’s what I have intention of doing, just going with the flow. I’m participating in Kims & Xanthes Behind the Scenes: A creative guide to blogging your Passion on line course. With Kim & Xanthe at my side, we’re part of a group of innovative and creative souls. Inspiration flowing from all over the world. We’ve only just started, but there’s such enthusiasm and strong energy I know I’m going to enjoy this journey. As I’ve been only blogging for a couple of years, ‘blogging’ was a means of communicating with family and friends, of showing them where I lived in Italy, sharing my new culinary cuisine and the extreme climate changes, so different of what I was used to in Australia. Moving to another country has really ‘changed’ me, in so many ways.

My time was also thinking about the many directions and avenues life can take us. The influences of surrounding ourselves with positive attitudes,thoughts and knowledge.

 We all have dreams. We all create these dreams within our minds, the things we hope for, we strive for, we fight for, we inspire to. Each and everyone of us has a passion within us.

Or do I really write from my inner self and heart. I’ve chosen the later. I write from my inner voice, I try to capture the world around me,the beauty of nature and her changing seasons. The love of fresh and seasonal produce, interpreting colour, balance and textures on a plate.The love of collective objects which truly expresses my love of many era’s, Victoriana in particular. The love of a single rose, the intricacy of a wooden frame, a silver platter or a linen tablecloth.  “ All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue …
