Remember the Name

Day 147 – May 27, 2018

Famous – DWP   Flowers – CB&W

So the photo really has absolutely nothing to do with fame.  It is simply just for Cee’s Black and White challenge.  And I just really like it.  But then again, what do I know.  No one really cares what I really think.  Perhaps if more people knew me, or I was well known for photography or gardening or, heck, even blogging, then I think maybe people would care.  But that’s not important to me.  In fact, the minutes I start writing this for the sole purpose of attracting more people to this blog, than I need to be called out and shut this thing down.  That is not at all why I do this.  And if I no longer do it for me, than why would I want to do this.  It’s actually kind of ironic.  This whole fame thing.  I was googling quotes on being “famous” and the thing is that most of the quotes I found are negative.  A lot of people don’t want to be famous, or find it a burden.  They would rather be this or that than be famous.  I teach.  I’ve taught for over 20 years and I have worked with a countless number of students.  And the thing is, when I go to the city it is inevitable that I will run into someone I taught, or have worked with and, a lot more rare, someone who has seen me on stage.  When I lived close to where I work, it was more of a burden because I really couldn’t go anywhere without running into someone who knew/remembered me.  A big reason why I moved a half hour away.  Don’t get me wrong, it has nothing to do with me not liking that, quite the contrary, I love running into former students who remember me and want to say Hi! I love it more when I remember their name (especially since I can’t remember if I put deodorant on this morning.)   And I think that that is all I need; just knowing that I had enough of an impact on someone that they remember who I am.  Yep, that’s really all the “fame” I need.

Seven years ago I started this adventure not really sure what would be my imprint on blogging. Twenty-one hundred days later the evidence is in the following posts and I await your impression.

I think; therefore I question. And then I write it down.
