A First Picture


Blogging Friends.... Robert Downey Jr. was once quoted as saying--during film production of "Sherlock Holmes"--"Go for broke and exempt all clichés if possible.". Ah, eccentrics!! You have got to love them!! Apparently, I do!! If Robert Downey Jr.--and Johnny Depp for that matter!!--are any proof of this, eccentrics not only act, dress, or speak oddly, they dare to be different!! Almost fearlessly!! Who'd have guessed that, as I've struggled mightily for years with being different, learning disabled, weird, and somewhat crazy, a world-known eccentric like Robert Downey Jr. would somehow encourage the message of "it is okay to be unique, so long as you are real"? Not me.... Why is it, exactly, does society think of "weird" as negative, anyway? Robert Downey Jr. seemingly embraces it!! "Go for broke and exempt all clichés if possible.". What I love about that quote is the very fact that it could be my life motto!! I should have spoken those words!! See, I've never done things quite like everyone else. After all, I was a female "cranio baby", remember? And, my Blog, Beautifully Unique is not exempt. While most Web sites contain pictures--and I enjoy them!!--mine never has. Because I am no photographer. I'm a writer!! I have considered posting photographs, and making Beautifully Unique just like everybody else's Blogs. Especially during its early days. But, then I came to truly love my picture-less Blog!! Because it is different. However, for the time being, as I continue to work hard on my "Secretive Writing Project", I shall post photographs. Enjoy!!

This is a first picture of Rose. Just look at those colossal brown "Beagle" eyes that I love so much!! They still seemed very sad and insecure. As though her eyes alone questioned: Are you my Mama? Is this where I will spend forever? Am I going to feel happy here....?

We think....but aren't absolutely sure that beagle eyes just look sad...and beagles know how to play on it.

Love eccentrics.

what a boring world this would be if everybody was the same. everyone is unique in their own way. what makes some stand out more than others is that they are more comfortable with their uniqueness, maybe even proud of it. you are one-of-a-kind, flaunt it!

Thanks for the comment!!
I suppose that it would vary on opinion, but, you stand corrected, my Friend!! Beagles--and their mixes!!--do not have sad eyes. Basset Hounds do!! Rose's eyes are actually quite happy now!! ;)
Eccentrics make the world a more colorful place!! ;op

Shes probably wondering where a treat is to go with her space. Ah, bless her paws......
I'm no writer :-) A photo says a million words just as well, because I normally have to much to say... :-) Perfect photo by the way, she's a beauty.

I think your blog should be whatever you want it to be. If you don't want pictures, that is great as long as it is you. I do love seeing that beautiful face now and then.

I would rather be different and find new places even if it means being weird. Who cares as long as I don't
