I spent some time talking on the phone with my sister on Saturday night. We live in the same city but we don’t really get together or talk all that often. She has her own business and she’s often busy and me – well I’m often not feeling that great, so I guess that’s why we don’t see each other much lately.
Anyway she’s off to Mexico! Lucky girl. A week away from home just as it’s getting cold here. I’m envious.
While we were talking I told her about my photoblog and sent her a few links to some of the shots on the site that I’m particularly happy with. I was very pleased when she told me that she really liked the photos.
I’m not just pleased because she liked them. I’m pleased because she’s an Artist and she liked them. She hasn’t been doing her own art work for a number of years now- partly due to having twins and her own business and lately she hasn’t been able to do any painting because she suffered a brain injury in 2004 as a result of a surgical operation she had to have done. She’s much better now but she lost a lot of her fine muscle control with the brain injury and she doesn’t know if she’ll be able to paint again.
During our conversation I was trying to encourage her to use her artist eye in photography. I’m sure she’d be a great photographer. It was through this part of the conversation that I mentioned my photoblog.
Now we have plans to go to some of the Funky areas of Toronto and take some photos together when she gets back from her vacation. I think we’ll have a lot of fun.
