Yesterday was a Bollywood extravaganza on the Blogsphere- very ordinary ugliness, hints at machiavellian plots and threats of foul murder (I just can’t believe what’s going on over at Creating Passionate Users, Kathy is a source of great kindness and support).
I found Elizabeth Perry’s lovely Woolgathering site which is a wellspring of quiet vision and gentle observation. She shares her delicate watercolours everyday and graces us with her mantra: Looking, Thinking, Drawing, Being.
Gavin, Paul and David and a posse of good sorts joined in on a Twitter call for Marsupial Madness- and a show of what makes this community of bloggers great. They , en mass, chose to change their photo personas to the small furry creatures who inhabit my continent- a burst of fabulous silliness.
I’m a big believer that silliness and beauty outweighs ugliness.
In true American Beauty style, being ordinary is a great fear of the deeply shallow and insecure, and that fear expresses itself in many ugly ways. On the Blogshere ugliness can hide, but so many wonderful flowers bloom.
