[ MMXIII ]

So one of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2013 is to make a post 365 days consecutively for the entire year.

What will you find within these chapters? I’m not even sure myself.

All I can say, is that you should live your life from one story to the next. There will always be twists and turns, nothing stays constant… not even your heart. All one can do is to not fight the current. Go where the next set of characters you meet will take you. You will learn a lot in the process, the most important would be learning a lot about yourself. There is no better discovery than that.

I want to live a life full of adventure. This blog will document that all in songs, poems, photos and reflections. I hope by the end of the year that I can follow the trail… like bread crumbs leading me back to where I first started. Watching all the tales unfold like an epic documentary.

Welcome to the epidemic.

XOXO,
~ Britt

  1. I’m looking forward to following this blog, especially the daily music because it’s such a wonderful idea! At the end, we’ll all have shared a soundtrack for the year πŸ™‚

  2. Last year I had the same sentiment — to post every day for a year. Driven by my yearning to write, I managed to make it into about September, with a few hiccups here and there due to internet access, computer malfunction, etc. Now, a year after my initial ambitions, I regret the incompletion of my project, as far as I did manage to go.

    Some words of advice for you as you begin to embark on this resolution: don’t give up. Whether this means having some backup material for a writer’s block day or going on Stumbleupon until you find inspiration, see this through. You won’t regret a single day.

    • I am desperately hoping to keep this up. It has only been a few days, and it has been harder than I thought. September is a great feat!

      Thank you for the advice and I shall check out Stumbleupon.

  3. It will be nice to read from you everyday, and the music idea is pretty good. Enjoy yourself in your writer, and I’m sure we (the followers) will enjoy ourselves with the lecture.

    • I believe it is important to let people know if you like their writing, or if what they do touches you in any way. No matter how happy or tragic what they are writing about may be, as encouragement to keep on doing it πŸ™‚

  4. I am always fascinated by what music others listen to. Thanks so much, I found a lot of good songs here! Will browse further for musical gems. All the best, Britt! Pia

  5. Nice to meet you Britt. Look forward to your posts and music shares. I’m a huge music guy so perhaps I’ll send you some too :). Oh and I guess I look forward to your pictures too πŸ˜‰

  6. I think it is a wonderful idea, something I have been hoping to do ever since I realised I wanted to be a writer πŸ™‚ (quite like another comment here mentions). I would love to follow you here at least to see how you get along with it, which I am sure you will too. Here’s wishing you the best. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you. I hope you decide to follow through with it. Would love to hear what you have to say. I enjoy reading what others write – to see what the ink spills next from another persons perspective. Here’s to wishing you the best as well. πŸ˜€

  7. Wonderful post .l wish you success with your endeavors.Thank you for liking my poem ( Treacherous Surmise.) jalal

    • Yay! πŸ˜€ And that’s good to know you use 99% of your own photos. Not that I don’t mind it when people use already made images, but I think that personal photos add a little something more to the blog. ^_^

  8. Fantastic post.Thank you for liking my post.Warm regards.jalal

    • Thank you! At first it was difficult, but the more I write, the more I think I’m finding my groove πŸ™‚ Which was the opposite of what I had initially thought would happen. But who knows as the year continues? Congrats on completing a yearly post! It is a commendable accomplishment.

      • Yeah. I thought I’d run out of steam pretty quickly and had a rough 8th month where I only had the time and brain power for haikus. The key is to never give up until after the last day.

  9. I like when you like my stuff. If I was the kind of guy who liked other peoples stuff I’d be liking your stuff, and I like your stuff… I’ve just never been stuffed liking stuff.
    So ah, good stuff.

    • Haha, that is quite all right. I didn’t start this project counting likes, but for the conversations. But I did follow you because I felt that you take the words out of my mouth sometimes in your posts. Continue doing what you do, and I won’t take it offensively if you’re not the kind of guy that likes other peoples stuff πŸ™‚

      • That’s quite a compliment, thank you very much. I’d like to think the way we read poetry reflects more of ourselves then the poet haha. And conversations are lovely I must agree. A really excellent way to convey thought and shape ideas, and that’s an excellent goal.

  10. I love this blog , you are so clever and gifted as I’ve told you dozens on times. I will definitely send you songs I love but I promise I won’t overwhelm you thanks for all you do

  11. Try any song by The Reign of Kindo. I promise you, you will float away into into blissful aura.

  12. Just wanted to give you a heads up that I nominated you for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award. You can find the rules for accepting the award
    at:

    I’ll also take this opportunity to apologize for the effort you will have to expend in accepting the award if you choose to do so. It takes a while, but is worth it to the blog community (that’s what they’ve told me, anyway). Regardless, thanks for making the blogworld more inspiring in your own way. Congrats, and thanks!

  13. Hello You have a very nice blog here. I love your collections! Keep spreading the joy and beauty to the world, my friend.
    Thanks Cyril

  14. A truly fascinating blog. I would not have predicted my attachment to it but here I am, attached.

    I think your poetry, although I’m far from an expert, is honest and touching. It flows naturally making it very easy for someone like myself to read.

    Music is a massive passion of mine. Each song a bookmark taking me straight back to that chapter of my life. Always on the lookout for new artists so I will be following with great interest and anticipation (no pressure!)

    Steven

    • Hi Steven πŸ™‚ I am glad you are enjoying your time on my blog. My writing style is simple and honest, and I’m glad you see it that way as well.

      As for music, it is a big part of my life. I just wish to share the songs that have moved me in hopes others can enjoy them as well. Thank you for taking the time to write to me, I really appreciate it and I hope to hear from you again soon!

      Warm Regards,
      Britt

    • Such an enchanting song, and the lyrics are quite poetic:

      Vesuvius
      Are you a ghost
      Or the symbols of light
      Or a fantasy host?
      In your breast
      I carry the form
      The heart of the Earth
      And the weapons of warmth

      Love it, thank you!

  15. Fairytale Epidemic, I stopped by your corner today. Did you see me? I live not too far from you at cross streets of Museum and Fiction and Documentary street. I hope you find the time to come visit my collection of artifacts. In the meantime, thank you for inspiring me to write this comment to you. May your art go on and on. Peace and blessings. Michele

  16. Hey you, hope you are well?

    I have nominated you again for The WordPress Family Award. Please check out my blog to follow rules πŸ™‚ Really glad to have met you πŸ™‚

      • It was the hardest of weekends. Back to my senses, except now someone has turned me on to Blogger. As strange as all this is, it will be stranger, as I think my blog will now be at http://beautifulinfinite.blogspot.com/ … which, sorry to put a link in a comment, but I hope you come by sometime. Of course I’ll keep reading your blog. It’s a great site, and it’s always good to see how you’re doing.

        • I’m sorry to hear that Ian. Hopefully things have gotten better. 😦 And thank you for the link, I wouldn’t know where to find it otherwise. Bookmarked for future perusing. ^_^

And the wind whispers...
