These three things may seem unrelated, and well they are. These are the Daily Creates I accomplished in Unit One of the SMPds106 course.
Pareidolia is seeing things in objects that ‘aren’t there’. More like seeing something in something that wasn’t the intended purpose of the thing you are looking at. So here’s my second one;

I decided to write about something real, and raw, and the take the word loss literally, and write about my grief. This is my space to write, and while I am using it for university work, this blog is my own space to write what I want. So, writing about something that personal early on will help me establish my online presence and really put my stamp on this blog. And, honestly, it is easier to write about things that matter to me, not easier to publish, but easier for the words to flow, with real meaning behind them.
