Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  5. Thank you for your kind words. Yes. I try to take my own when I can. I put the small CJD mark on my photos and will give credit to the photographer if it is not mine. My own internal challenge is a photo and poem. I try to use my iPhone for the photos as another internal challenge.
