Today's Quote...

Oh boy! This is nothing if not veracious. This is today's quote of the day.

"Misquotation is, in fact, the pride and privilege of the learned. A widely- read man never quotes accurately, for the rather obvious reason that he has read too widely. - Hesketh Pearson"

That's me. I feel like this person quoted that saying in my honor! It describes me to a T. I have a tendency to misquote all the time. I am also well-learned, well-read and you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who takes in information better than me. I get comments all the time on how observant I am, both good and bad. Some people I drive crazy because I'm always pointing out little details they were hoping I'd miss. Some people I fascinate because I see things others miss. You should have heard the compliments I got from some of my ma's friends who saw this statue of a polar bear that I did for her. Most people would make it look like a white grizzly bear or kodiak bear. But I didn't. Polar bears look different from grizzlies or kodiaks. The neck is longer and more slender, the head is also more slender, the body is quite a bit more streamlined, and the feet are broader. They are better built for an almost fully-aquatic way of life.

Anyway, I think I've found my second calling. Film-making! I made a film of my sis Anna and the dogs for her school. No matter what the outcome is for the film at the school, I really enjoyed making the film!! I enjoyed mostly playing with the gadgets on MovieMaker! Oh it was so much fun! I got a huge thrill from putting the captions on each scene, and at the beginning and the end of the movie. Then the end result of putting it on a disk and watching it on television, it was so enthralling! Some time this year, I will be offering some of my stories on DVD, I am in the works with that project now. I am having so much fun with it too!! I learn the most by just doing. Thinking of a project and just going foreward. Playing with gadgets, getting to know them and use them continually. Eventually I will be making professional-style DVDs. It is learning this that will make getting this project out an achievable and easy task.

Who knows maybe some day I will start vlogging instead of blogging. Vlogging BTW is video blogging, also known as "video-logging" for those who don't know. If I like making these movies I'm going to really like vlogging!!! Then instead of typing about my day, I can video tape it and post on here.
