There are a few blogs I have followed for quite sometime that I thought I would do a little spotlight post on one of them.
I’m not sure if you folks have ever me Tom over at Tom Slatin.com, but his work is so cool. I never claim to be any type of artist because when I see photographers like Tom it reminds me that I am, at best, an amateur. I’ve know Tom for a couple years now and his work keeps getting better and better. Several members of my family love his short stories too so be sure to check those out. I know quite a few folk follow him on Twitter so here’s the link if you are interested.
The following is an excerpt from his writing notebook, dated April 3, 2017.
Sometimes I wish that I were an open book so that if by some chance, I might be understood, cherished, or admired, though thankfully in reality I’m not an open book. There’s something beautiful about being mysterious. I tend to keep my thoughts and feelings bottled up inside, posting some of my better thoughts and ideas on my blog, perhaps as evidence of sorts to support my claims of high intelligence. My anxiety and depression comes when too many people read it, or when I don’t get the reaction I was seeking. I regret sharing some things, though trivial and unimportant for fear of being judged.
Be sure to swing by and say hello to Tom. Tell him Danny sent ya!!
