Two-Year Anniversary Invitation
This blog began on March 12, 2016, with “Conversations with Laura.” “Out into the World” followed the next day, “Fire, Flood, and Famine” on March 21, and “Gothic Shadows” on March 28. Every Monday since, I’ve posted an entry broadly related to writing, reading, history, imagination, and the creative life. The intent is to start a conversation, compare notes, and trigger ideas. Thanks to all who read these posts and respond or think about them.
You’re invited to help me celebrate by suggesting a topic for a future post. I’ll try to post something, over time, on every suggestion (or at least one per person) consistent with the overall blog theme. No present-day politics or religion, please. Blog form comments, Facebook, LinkedIn, and email will all reach me. Looking forward to hearing from you!

What comes to mind when I want to write is my life experiences mixed with current events. I hope this helps.
James, thought-provoking and helpful. Do you write about the interaction between current events and your life experiences, or do you more often write separately about each by turn? And when an associated blog post falls into place, may I refer to you (by first name only) as having suggested it?

Your 5 broad topics are a part of all of my art projects. I love to include words and read a lot to find just the rights ones, or they find me. I research the history in art techniques and creations to fuel my imagination and creativity. I shall miss sharing these ideas and this process with our dear friend Rhonda. Maybe there’s a topic in there somewhere.
So many directions to muse here. Use of words in visual art, researching the history to fuel imagination, the place of sharing in creativity, Rhonda of course. Give me some weeks for a blog post to click! When it does, may I refer to you by first name, or do you prefer anonymity?

Reference is fine. No sweeter sound than that of one's own name, eh?
