“I’m struck by almost daily reminders that my life is passing by much too quickly. It is food for the soul to stop and savor moments spent amongst friends, family, natural beauty and even necessary moments of solitude. These moments collectively serve as my source of joy, laughter, love, sadness, wonder and appreciation for all that I have in my life. This photo blog is my journey to capture and share a few of those moments – some ordinary, some rare, but all mine.”
A little about me: I live in Austin. I recently retired from a long career in the tech industry, but am a troglodyte at heart. I am much happier playing outside than on the computer. I’ve been slowly expanding my foray into social computing – starting with creating my first ever non-work email id in 2008 when I took a leave of absence, then facebook, then twitter, and then this wordpress blog in 2010. Sheila365 started out as a photoblog, when I decided to undertake a 365 project in March 2010 – with a goal to take and post a photo capturing a moment from my day, every day, for a year. I’m proud to say I successfully completed that project after the first year. In the 2nd year of sheila365, I still took and posted a photo nearly every day. Since then, I try to post every few days. Sheila365 photoblog is now in its 8th year! I enjoy the creative outlet that my photoblog provides.
I’m more tomboy than girlie girl. I am first generation Irish American (and proud to be). I am a work in progress.
I value my friendships. Each one is special.
My family is dear to me. I live too far away from them, but try not to let that get in the way of getting a visit in.
I love spending time with friends and family – cooking, gardening, sailing, a glass of wine, sports, games, reading, making things with my hands, playing the guitar, photography, geocaching, and (of late) birdwatching. I also enjoy time to myself.
I have a lovely hubby. No kids – not by choice, it just turned out that way. My life is very simple, and used to be dominated by work pressure (real or self-imposed). Now that I am retired, I look forward to exploring all the things I have wanted to try, but put off til “later.”
Thanks for stopping by!
