"JJ Walking,Dreaming and Writing"




Recently I met someone in the Blog catalog who caught my interest by the description of their blog. "Nature and writing go hand in hand." This simple introduction is by JJLoch for her blog " Nature Shows and Dreams."
There are so many of us who want to write, and communicate to others in our daily blogs. JJ has achieved this by writing about what she knows....her home, her people and her landscape. She tells of life all around her...through the landscape, the animals and the dramatic changes in weather. With her eyes and words, Northern Michigan becomes a warm and inviting place. In her profile on Blogger she says she hopes to be an author one day. I for one think she is well on her way.

It is not often one feels comfort and familiarity when they read about places they have never been to....but JJ brings out that universal quality that touches us all. She gives us a feeling that we have been there before. JJ has a way of describing places and events that remind us of our own special memories. A very famous artist once said "the most complex thoughts are expressed with the simplest of forms". That's how I see JJ's world . It is this beautiful winter wonderland captured through her observations and her photography in a simple and truthful way. You will come away from reading JJ's postings with an excitement to return. I am including some of my favorite photos of JJ's world...Lake Huron is especially super..., I enjoy all of her postings....another special one "Painting of the Family Farm". It reminded me of my wife's family home , the smell of wood burning fireplaces that heated the rooms and a kitchen full of busy sounds and smells of holiday cooking. Treat yourself this season to a visit of " Natures Shows and Dreams"..... Robbay

Robbay,

You are so right in your description of JJ Loch. She has the most beautiful heart of anyone I know and it flows onto the page from her musings about her life.

JJ is on her way as a novelist and I'm so very proud and honored to be one of her friends who is watching her transformation.

God has definately blessed JJ with talent. She's the most wonderful person I know.

Hugs,
Tambra Kendall
