Beatnheart is one year old.




It starts with just one photo...


I’m  exploring
and changing
and trying
and developing




seeing things different
with new eyes
different lenses
far out focus




textures
cropping
text
fade in
and out




I’m putting on my rose coloured glasses 
and making my world a bit more interesting
bigger, brighter, better,
always different
and not accepting the status quo
of the past...



Cause you can teach this middle aged brain new things. 
I find that standing still and doing the same thing
 over and over again bores me
so I shake it up
and mess about
and play.

DISCOVER
NEW 
THINGS
TODAY..

Do things different than you usually do.
challenge yourself!
You may reveal talents you didn’t know you had


 I am Celebrating one year of blogging...

I remember that first baby step and pressing PUBLISH POST for the first time.  scary...
Surely thinking no one will ever read this and that’s ok, I’ll do it for myself.  It’s my diary of sorts and
a way to pass down some sort of legacy. A tool to see where I’ve come from and where I’m 
going.   Who would have ever thought I would find all the good friends I have gathered from this
humble little place.  

THANK YOU ALL FOR SHARING AND LEARNING AND GROWING RIGHT ALONG WITH
ME.   WITHOUT DISCOVERING NEW THINGS AND CHALLENGING MYSELF MY WORLD
WOULD HAVE BEEN A LOT DULLER.  You all have inspired me to work harder and be
better and not just accept who I am but aim just a little bit higher and reach for new goals.

I remember this time last year meeting you. It was a pleasure then and it is still a pleasure now.
And one day when the lottery does what's supposed to and pay me out then I'll be round for a glass of wine!

Congrats, sweet friend!
I agree, it's important
to keep stretching and
growing....Use it or lose
it, right??! And I want
to continue using it for
as long as possible : )
I'm amazed by some in my
parent's generation {but
not MY parents, thankfully}
who refuse to use a computer.
How lost I would be in this
new world without one!
Keep playing, having fun
and discovering!!
