I have a calendar and I have a plan. And I am 3 weeks behind my plan already. My goal is to post something every other week, at least, sometimes more in a week, sometimes less. So you may see this post today, and then see another later this week. This is my way to get my voice heard.
So what you will see here is a conglomeration of things:
Nature Study Updates
Nature Study Book Project Updates
Writings, musing, and photos about my garden, the farm, the challenges, and the successes
Writings about life in general and thoughts that run through my head
Writings about my personal businesses: Lucky 7 Studios and Adams Consulting
Comments, thoughts, etc… about other peoples writings/posts
Writings about my research and being published — which by the way I just submitted an article for a magazine right before I wrote this — will keep you updated!
Other things I am involved in — for example: Salem Second Saturday — Come pARTy! in Downtown Salem as we celebrate the ARTS! (August 10, 2019) and other things
My art, quilting, sketching, and miscellaneous musings.
Here is a photo essay I completed in 2006. The images were all taken with film (a 35mm Canon Rebel 2000 camera) and scanned into whatever multi function printer I had at the time (the reason they are a little blurry).
The essay came to me as I was driving home from somewhere in NE Ohio and an Ozzy song was playing (yes I listen to Ozzy)… The Road to Nowhere….. But the song evoked such a response that the road led to somewhere that I was thoroughly inspired to begin a journey of photos that lasted almost a year. Once I felt I had enough, I printed them out, small size, and taped them onto my sketchbook and it all began to fall into place.
For the first time ever for the world to see…. The Road To…. A Photographic Essay by Jennifer A Adams.
Ah yes, a day in the life of….. a mother, an artist, a daughter and a friend.. Life at my house can be challenging especially with my 16 year old daughter. Today was not unlike so many others.
I was using http://www.flylady.net to help me get my house cleaned, organized and uncluttered. I was working through 2 of the baby steps – shining my sink and getting dressed to shoes. Going to bed every night with an empty shiny sink and waking up to no mess in the kitchen is fantabulous. And who ever thought that getting dressed to shoes could make you feel so much better about yourself. Totally love Flylady. I am also working on myself in so many ways.
But enough for now, I wanted to just say welcome to a day in the life of….. The story will continue in the future.
