Reinventing Myself

2020 was the year that I reinvented myself, twice over. It was also the year that I stepped away from blogging, writing and all things social media to focus on myself and my family. It was a somber year, and I’m grateful to have learned many new skills that I will utilize to become a better, kinder and wiser person today, and in the future.

It was extremely hard to step away from this blog that had been my sole focus for the last twelve years and concentrate solely on my schooling, family and me. It was a year of achievements, tears and a new world order that saw many of us locked down for months on end. 

I’ve finally taken my passion of photography and digital art and opened up shop for the world to see, well, almost opened it up for the world to see. It’s ‘Coming Soon,’ albeit very soon.

A place where inspiration & adventure meet. A curious venture that puts my digital art & photography on your favourite everyday items: T-shirts, totes, journals, canvas prints, posters and so much more.

Snapshots: Peek A Moo

My early morning runs consist of pastures, steep rolling hills and plenty of hefty beasts. I was at the four-kilometre mark when I saw this beautiful beast peeking at me from behind the granite wall. I stopped running to enjoy the moment. I leaned on the granite slab with my iPhone 5S and snapped away, she didn’t move, just watched me with those curious eyes.

It was 6:30 AM, early for her and early for me. I pass her every other day on my run, sometimes it’s her relatives that stop and stare, but today it was her and she was lovely. I enjoyed each moment. Once I got home, showered and had that second espresso of the day, I uploaded this photo to social media. Well, it didn’t go viral, that was not my intention, I just liked the photo and wanted to share it with my world.

Within minutes, friends from all over the globe were congratulating me on such a wonderful photo, I just thought ‘right place, right time.’ Many friends suggested that I submit it to a photo competition or to National Geographic. I did the last, here’s the link. It’s not a competition, just a place for photographers to drop their pics for the world to see.

If you liked this photo then share it with your friends. Thank you.

Inside Sardinia: A Distorted Nature’s Poem

Inside Sardinia: A distorted Nature’s poem …

jennifer-avventura-my-sardinian-life-2016

I grow flat along the red rocky earth
with only the wind to guide me.
My nutrients I steal from the sea
with only the wind to guide me.
I yearn to reach new heights
with only the wind to guide me.
I’ve learned to reach the mountain peak
with the wind holding my hand, beside me.

Snapshots: Remembering Sardinia’s Panorama

It’s been nine months since I left my soul in Sardinia, and there’s not a day that passes in which I don’t think of her majestic nature.
