I have a deep respect for fellow blogger Marg Hogan. She is one of a handful of women I met through the Blogging Your Way online course created by Holly Becker of Decor8. ‘Met’ is a loose term since she lives in Australia and I in the USA. She is a kindred soul of the visual and poetic kind. I dig her photography and her simple word accompaniments. I aspire to be this simple. Her posts are like wonderful mind snacks.


She posted a piece with so many pictures, it’s an art installation masquerading as a blog post. The subject was on an artists village called Hills End.

It’s called The Day the Artists Open Their Doors.


And she poses a question  about bravery to let go and define yourself as “artist”.

To make the artist you are your real job.  I wanted to share this lovely post everywhere.


Art and life are one. Voyeurism is allowed on this day. Snack with your mind on her pictures.

    1. For reals Marg (not Marge)? How can I not get your amazing pictures? And your throwback musical references? And your enthusiasm for art, wine, life on your land, and wanderlust? You are a gem I’d like to share. If only I had more people to share you with.
