Yesterday, I was doing some digging around the internet and had a burst of inspiration! So, I came here after work and made a logo and changed up my art.
See, it’s like this…
I loved my first “logo” which was this:
I liked the roundness of it and the feel that it was something I created myself, which of course I did! My 85-year-old dad liked it too, which made it sentimentally appealing, too.
But every time I’ve seen it lately, I wasn’t happy. What was it? I wasn’t sure… but I made a mental note to come back to it later, which I did, for… like… a year.
Yesterday, for some reason, it hit the wall, so to speak. I knew it was time.
I chose a tree because to me, it is a symbol of growth, which is what this blog has been doing since October, 2017. Trees also mean grounding or perhaps “branching out”. Either way, they both fit! And of course, trees mean life.
Those of you who have been reading me with any regularity know that I have had many blogs – and many blogs have died in the making of my blogs.
This one is special. This one is alive! It’s survived the days I didn’t feel like writing or was overcome with political fury or just plain wanted to quit.
It will be my legacy, if there is one to be had.
So, that’s why I chose the tree.
The flowers and greenery… and actually the color green used throughout… only intensify the meaning in the logo.
This blog may have started out being about books but it’s matured into so much more. It’s about mental health and photography, relationships, friendships, writing and poetry… and also finding out about yourself … from your roots to your treetops!
Only the facade has changed… and I think for the better! I just love it!
When I come back next time, I hope to encourage and inspire you look for and ask questions. You may wonder what I mean… but you’ll have to wait. And it will be totally worth it!
