It’s a small world.

Recently I was surprised to meet Naysan Naraqi who works on Baha’i Blog.  He was visiting Australia and came up and introduced himself at the wedding of some mutual friends.

It was great to meet someone who is just as passionate about the powers of blogging.

He asked me what I thought of Baha’i Blog, which I love.   He asked me if it was a useful and interesting site.  Well, it sure is.  I especially love the features on musicians and artists, but also there are many well written articles on topical issues.  He was then very encouraging of my own projects.

I love to interact with people of any background, cultural and religious, but also love catching up with my Baha’i blogging buddies (haha now that’s a lot of alliteration).

This year I joined the team at Nineteen Months, as a contributing photographer, as well as that I am helping administer a couple of on line Baha’i arts groups.

Slowly but surely I meet more of the people I know through their projects and blogs in real space.  I love this, because no matter how much I love blogging, connecting up with people in real space is brilliant.

Naysan recently let me know  you can now catch Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions: HERE

Another project that I adore is Baha’i Chronicles  which features inspiring Baha’i biographies, from the past, and more contemporary.   They are always looking for contributors.

Another project I love is  UK Baha’i Histories, who feature stories of Baha’is with any connection to the UK.  I regularly blog their stories here.  I hope more Baha’i communities around the world establish ongoing heritage projects like this to collect stories of some amazing people.

So every now and then I hope to feature a bit of a news wrap up of Baha’i blogging projects from around the world.

For celebration of the ‘glory’ and ‘to make a better world’

The realm of glory is not something I can depict in a realist photographic approach. It is something, unknowable, untouchable, and so my focus is more to the essence of the shape of things, the abstract.

“Verily His Call will draw thee nigh unto the realm of glory and will cause thee to extol His praise in such wise that every created thing will be enraptured, and to magnify His glory in such manner as to influence the entire creation. Truly thy Lord is the Protector, the Gracious, the All-Informed.”
-Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah

This year I’ve joined the wonderful team of photographers over at nineteen months.  Each Baha’i Month, we post a photograph we’ve taken and quote that inspires us.

It’s a super busy time as I’m about to begin tutoring, doing an online course…
