I changed the scheme of my blog today. It felt like the right time. For so long, the background picture was the view out of the window of an airplane, and I liked it. It represented travel, adventure and moving forward.
When I had xanga (remember that???), I would change the theme a few times a month. They would be tropical colors, and eventually I moved on to Cirque du Soleil ideas. I never used a picture of myself for the profile picture, mostly because up until around 2006, I did not have any pictures of myself on the internet.
Myspace followed the same general layout until around the time I left the site and joined Facebook. Everyone's Facebook looks exactly the same, and after how out of control the Myspace layout's have become, I appreciate the simplicity of it.
When it comes to my blog, I want to it be a reflection of me. It is my blog, my own personal corner of the massive Internet that I can almost call my own, for I do not own blogger.
After failing to receive any input via the Internet on opinions or ideas, I ventured out on my own to gather a few things I like in picture form. I found pictures regarding killer whales, water, coffee, tea, geese flying in formation, plumeria, music, clarinets, beaches, books, and I settled on the current one of a heart on the beach.
I decided on the picture, a heart on the beach in black and white because well, I liked it. I'm not sure if is a full representation of me right now, but maybe who I want to be. I don't really have love or innocence in my life right now. The ocean is great and mighty...I'm not really sure where I am going with this idea. I just liked it, and I also liked that the heart was upside down.
Maybe I'll find a real reason I like it sometime soon.
So far, God has granted me three days of peace, and I pray it continues. He is good, and I know he is working in my life and my future. He has given me the strength to move on, and I am ready to.
