I am Simply Delighted to introduce you to Amy from Petals Unfolding blog (found at: https://herladypinkrose.wordpress.com ) If you are not already familiar with Amy’s work, I highly recommend visiting her exquisite blog. Her photography is utterly beautiful and, in my humble opinion, keeps getting better and better. Her thoughts and inspirations on Life, Love, Nature, Harmony and Passion are filled with all of the same, drawing you closer to her and the beautiful world she shares through the magic of the photographers lens and her own Special Heart each time you visit. But before you dash off to discover for yourself exactly what I’m talking about; Amy agreed to share a bit about herself and her blog through The Lime Light, which is found below, along with a minuscule collection of her amazing photography, just to tempt you!
About Your Blog:
Tell us about your Blog.
My Blog “Petals Unfolding” is where Inspiration, Creation, and Heart all meet. It is a place I have created to assist others as they walk their own Life Journeys. I’ve been told that my Blog makes one feel as if they are being hugged. My Blog is where I reveal my Heart’s Passions in both photography and word.
What Inspires and stirs your creativity ?
All things in Life inspire me, but especially Mother Nature, the Greatest Artist of all.
What Message, if any, do you hope to Share through your blog/posts?
My Message simply is Love, based on Beauty, Truth, Wisdom, Humor, and Peace.
What are your Dreams for the Future in regards to your Blog and your work?
I have many Dreams regarding my work. I am following the Call of my Heart and as I do, my Dreams manifest one by one. My Blog is one of my Dreams, and truth be told, I did not foresee the amount of people who now come to “Petals Unfolding”. If you had told me a few years back I would be the Creator of such a Blog, I would have laughed. I would like to publish books which contain the work found on my Blog and from there, branch out to include travel in my life in order to document with my camera and word, places in this world my Heart long to see. In a nutshell, I just have this vision that my work will make a difference in this world, by bringing to the viewer the Beauty and Power of Mother which I have the utmost privilege to capture by means many people do not have. I really want this world to again understand that we all were meant to be connected to Mother in order to embrace our Vital Truth about ourselves.
Describe yourself in Five Words.
Now this one I struggled with because I tend to encompass diversity. Complex yet simple. The (long) list I came up with got out of hand until I began to double up some of the words to make “one” description. Well, in order to keep things simple, I came up with 5 words that I believe describe me in a nutshell and they are: I AM a Creative Visionary.
If you could meet one person from the past, who might it be and why?
Hmmmmm ….. Again I really thought about this question. Upon reflection, I would have to say I would have loved to meet Princess Diana, for she for reasons I am not able to explain, I had a powerful connection with, even though I never did meet her. I would have loved to sit down with her and really talk to her, for in ways I could see, her Heart and mine were of the Same Beat.
When you are not writing/taking pictures, what is your favorite pastime?
I have several favorite pastimes. One is just vegging on the couch and watching girl flicks on those days when I am really tired. Another is having my nose buried in a good book, so good that I loose all contact with reality. A third is playing and just hanging out with my cats. Another is gardening. Another is I love to make beautiful all natural soap bars and body butters. Oh, gee, I just thought of another one. I really enjoy crocheting and knitting during the cold winter months. I really enjoy blogging on those days that I have time to do it because I just plain love talking (in this case through my fingers). Every day I try to walk in parks just to be with Mother and that means without my camera. I am really now enjoying a class I take called “Body Flow” which is a combination of Yoga/Tai Chi/Pilates. I told you I am diverse. I could think of several more, but I think you get the idea. Oh, one more. I really enjoy spending quality time with a friend of mine. (smile)
Describe Your Perfect Day.
My Perfect Day is when I AM ONE with Flow of Life.
What makes Life Worth Living?
I have learned through several Life Experiences how Precious Life is. And so every day I wake up with Purpose in Mind, to create, to do all I have within my Life walking with Joy and Love within my Heart. I take care of special needs cats. Just take my word for it, this keeps me extremely busy as I consistently help all of them live a quality life. Simply put, what makes Life worth living is LOVE. I have come to understand that ALL Life deserves to be Respected and Loved. When one is connected to All There Is, Life becomes magical even on those days when that one is digging through a mountain of laundry that seemed to have grown all by itself, that needs to be washed. Life is worth living when you learn that with Right Attitude (one based on Love, Joy, Peace) and walking in Kindness and Gentleness, Life becomes the Precious Gift it is meant to be.
