"Corner View" The Unveiling

From the time I was a little girl, I was constantly being reminded by my parents the meaning of my name... "truth", they would tell me, which is why they further explained that I was not allowed to lie to them. I would say that my name fits. I am not one of those overbearing, blurt out the first thing that comes to mind, but I do feel like am a "what you see is what you get" kind of girl.

To further "unveil" some things about myself... while I love to take various shots of the flowers in my garden, it is not as majestic as one might think. Weeds in every corner reveal that it's owner is often gone, too busy, or just too unmotivated to do something about it. And while my parents-in-law believe that purple is my favorite color, it is actually green... I just haven't had the heart to correct them.

Even though it is not obvious from my blog, I try to be brief, but somehow I just can't seem to say exactly what I mean unless I include every detail. I often wander down what our family calls "bunny trails" which just means that I start with one story, tell so many details that I end up on a completely different subject, only to eventually end up back where I started. Sometimes I feel as if there just are not enough words.

But for me, more important than words are pictures... lovely things to look at, to be inspired by, and to spark my imagination. In fact I much prefer pictures to words, it seems to hold my attention longer because I don't get bogged down in all the details. And as they say... a picture really is worth a thousand words...

  17. Gorgeous Flowers! Though I wouldn't say I lie, I often find it hard to tell the people the truth which is hard for me sometimes being married to a German who tells it like it is.
