Hi, I was brown and raised in Ireland and not live in Georgia. I am a photographer and enjoy the outside. I am married and have a beautiful family.
I truly believe that if you slow down and stop
for just a moment you can see beautiful things in
the everyday surroundings of the world we live in.
You do not need an expensive camera or
top of the line equipment. Just a love and
appreciation for the world we live in.
The pictures and my poetry is my own.

I spent most of my life so far in the small seaside town of Whitstable, which has left me with an enduring love of seafood and shingle. I spent three years attending something very like a certain Archers College, studying things that were not quite closest to my heart – leaving the really important stuff entirely self-taught, with the help of six bookcases full of remarkable literature. Time after that found me moving abroad to the sunny side of the alps, spending a year in Slovenia, overwintering in the remote mountains then oversummering in melancholy Ljubljana and enjoying the company of the pretty eastern European girls – with all aspects of the trip leaving an impression that will probably linger in ... read more

Andy Reilly has had a love of music and a love of writing for as long back as he can remember. Sometimes this means the previous week but over the years, he has been to more gigs, listened to more albums and put down more withering reviews of acts that were operating at a higher level than they really should have been than most sane people would think was good for them. Of course, as a Glaswegian, Andy believes that doing what is good for you is an optional extra in life.
No matter what else has been going on in his life, music has been a constant companion, usually a friend, sometimes an enemy but never a waste of time. However, within the sometimes cynical front he commonly offers to the world lies the wide ... read more

Lindsay Chamberlin is an author who is self publishing her own works. She grew up in Northern Virginia and has been writing since she was a teenager. She would constantly write in a journal, including her day to day life and random thoughts that she found noteworthy.
When she graduated from high school with English Honors and Math Honors, she knew her life would go in one of two ways. She would either become a writer or work in finance.
Finance won. Until recently, she did not think her dream of being a known author would ever come true, but thanks to self publishing, she is finally able to get her work out to the public in hopes that they will enjoy her short stories, novels, and select poems.

Where an owl at the door
For a sentinel stood.

As in 2012, Im 57, female. I stand up and speak out for Transsexuals but support Transgender folk.
I have had an incredible life and experienced more than most have. It has been fascinating to be able to see things from both sides. Being a jealous, suspicious female interested in a male and so wanting to txt him, chase him, question him but on the otherside being able to see how this would infuriate and annoy a man.
I have learnt to tolerate others, hate liars, realise trust is incredibly special. To miss my children who disowned me yet my elderly mother in a rest home was so understanding and accepting of her son at 48, becoming a woman.
Its a fascinating journey so read and enjoy.
