Being a Blogger

After reading the words of an administrator yesterday on a blog that I frequent and comment often, I searched for the words to define the direct open reprimand given, while perhaps understanding the need for regulation.

I needed not search very long. Today, the brilliant Italian physicist, photographer, and poet of The Dusty Lens my friend, Andrea Chincarini, said it best in a comment on his blog:

"To each its own and a blog is for bloggers."

(Amico caro, AC. Grazie tante. Le vostre parole parlano sempre tale verità e le vostre fotografie visualizzano la bellezza ed il mistero di vita. Le vostre foto parlano e le vostre parole immaginano.)

Dear Bloggers, friends and foes: This blog is for you. Welcome!

Thanks, Linda. Regarding the photo, a little color is always nice. :-) Popping over to your blog now.

I am very much for open speech and expression - isn't that the whole point of open forums, the internet, and the 1st amendment?

judith ellis said...

Hey Meena - Good to see you. You are so right and said so succinctly as a good poet would. :-) Thank you.

Meena said...

Good to see you too, in a new light I may add :-)
Thanks and...I like to speak my mind and like to hear others and having it shut down, not so good. Though I suppose even I have lines, but they are way out there.

"Though I suppose even I have lines, but they are way out there."

Very nice, Meena. I feel the exact same way. I also get the sneaky suspicion that the main blogger of the aforementioned blog is also way out there.

Now you really made me blush...
Thank you for the continuous credit and support you give me with your words, both here and on my blog.

This new pic of yours is.. refreshing and spontaneous. Perhaps a new Judith is on her way?

love
A.

Brosreview - Your perspective is fresh and real. These are a few of the things that I appreciate about your blog. What you write means a lot to me.

judith ellis said...

A beautiful :-) back to you, Meena.

judith ellis said...

A - You are love. Hopefully, we can catch up in either San Fransico or New York soon. I have lived in both of these wonderful cities and LOVE them both. I'm also do a trip back to Italy. I used to go quite often. By the way, a new Judith is always on her way. :-) I am forever becoming...

THANK YOU!

My pleasure, beautiful poet. Each time I enter your space, Epiphany: Rebirth, I smile infinitely and leave wanting more...still. Thank you for sharing.

"a new Judith is always on her way. I am forever becoming..."

We have shared conversations on many blogs. I have seen you be the target of comments not directed at the topic being discussed, but rather your gender, intelligence, ethnicity, integrity, and many other things. You have handled all of these "conversations" with class, wit, intelligence, strength, sense of humor that has earned you the respect and admiration of at least one (and I'm sure many more) fellow bloggers.

I am also learning that it is never to late in life to get "angry", engaged, and involved...the new Judith philosophy! As always, I learn and am inspired by our interactions...you're the best!

Ah, Dave, thank you so very much for these words. They are like balms. What you can always expect from me is the truth as I see it and often times "I answer a fool according to his folly." But there is nothing in me that seeks to harbor ill-feelings, no matter how heated the conversation.

While I may never forget some words, my love and big heart for others usually override any negativity. Again, thank you, Dave, so very much for these words. They are deeply appreciated and helps to move me forward, further still. We are helpers one to another.
