i yam what i yam

i ran this post a year ago, but once again it seems timely, funny how situations never really change only the characters.
One of the biggest(but not the only) influences on me blogger wise has been Raymi.
I've never met her, maybe one day.
She was the second blogger I read regularly and when I started blogging, and she really struck me as someone who really goes for it, not playing it safe at all.
She had an interview with an online mag and this excerpt struck me, talking about sticking your neck out.

when you feel insecure about something you are doing, ... that vulnerability means that you are doing the right thing and when you watch that... the part when you started second-guessing ... that is likely the best part ... same goes for writing and photos of yourself. go the extra distance, it pays off.

She's not the only one of course, there's another blogger, who I actually did meet and has always pushed me out of my comfort zone.
So to everyone who asks, do you ever feel weird talking pictures in restaurants.
Aren't you a little full of yourself, talking pictures of yourself all the time?

Actually, I'm probably tons more insecure than you are, but I'm growing and discovering things that I otherwise wouldn't have.
get your ash downtown

And one of those things is, I'm probably tons more egotistical than you are.[where: 45202]best place to learn how to live downtown cincinnati ohio the ethos of Cincinnati


  1. Keep truckin 5chw4r7z, me thinks this quote is appropriate, from Jack Kerouac vintage 1951...
    The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"

  2. love that picture of you Bob!!!
