“from curiosita to connessione

To blog or not to blog?  This is the question.  I am a lifetime learner, and for most of the time, a self-learning student.  Having created three personal travel sites, and a few work-related sites including a mini blog on my own, I am itching to try something new.   I like to write a little when I post my pictures, but my primary interest is not in writing.  I believe I am more a thinker than a writer.  So, why did I decide to start a blog?   Because I am curious.  Will I be able to write like a blogger?   Will people read my blog?  Will I have followers?  I will know the answers soon!

The full name of this blog is “from curiosita to connessione”  which means from curiosity to interconnectedness,  something that I have learned from the book “How to think like Leonardo da vinci” by Michael J. Gelb, 2000.  

When I was looking for a suitable theme for this blog, I found this beautiful “Thirteen” designed by an IT student.  I love this design, which however cannot show the full name of the blog.  Well, I need to make a choice, and guess what?  I love the new name of the blog anyway!  

What am I going to write on this blog?  As I love art and travel, this will be the main focus.  I hope you will enjoy the blog and participate.  Thank you!

    Thank you for stopping by. I have other blogs too, also travels, photography, art, food. This theme does not support big pix and so I used the other themes for travel pix particularly.

    I did check out your travel photos and journal. Very nice. I went o Japan many years ago. Happy blogging !
