We Are Like Bricks

With Each Brick Laid

When I saw this picture, that I took while on the Blissdom Photowalk in Downtown Nashville, after editing all of the Blissdom’09 pictures, I instantly thought of all the women and men that I met and the bonds that have been formed as a result of coming together.

Various bloggers from various blogging circles (or not) came together, but from what I observed everyone was made to feel welcomed and united. It was a great thing to witness.   Every one of us unique in our own rite, just like the bricks of a building.

Together they are strong and sturdy.
Together they are beautiful and they contribute to a greater good.
Together they make up so much more than one little brick standing alone.

Here are all the beautiful bricks of Blissdom 2009 (and if you aren’t on this list, let me know!):

    Beautiful, Mishi. Simply beautiful.
    and the fact that you took the time to write everyone out, speaks once again to the simple beauty of your heart and spirit. You are truly amazing and so full of light and love. I am blessed to know you and count you in my circle of friends.

    I so wish I could take credit for the linky list. I saw it on some of the Blissdom [osts and borrowed it for this post. I had started to do all the cards that i got, but wanted to include everyone that attended.

    Thank you for loving me Rachel. I love you just as much!!

  3. 02.16.2009

    I wish I could have made it, looks like a great group!!

  4. 02.16.2009

    So amazing of you to mention us all! Thank you so much for your kind words, your beautiful photos and sweet sweet spirit!

  5. 02.16.2009

    I like the idea of bricks and people coming together – indeed we are all stronger together right?!

  6. I love this analogy!! So sweet and true indeed!!! I wasn’t on that list on the Blissdom page, but that’s aight cause I’m on your site all the time now!

  7. 02.16.2009

    Thanks for including me in the links! Blissdom was my first blogging conference and it was an amazing experience. I was one of those that showed up by myself, not knowing a soul, and within 10 minutes I was surrounded by several friendly faces. Thanks for documenting the whole experience so beautifully!

  8. 02.17.2009

    Damnit, you really put me up there…I thought for just a second I was going to OWN your soul!

    Oh well, I’d rather have your love. I just want to sit next to you and feel your talent ooze out of your pores.

  9. 02.17.2009

    You’re an amazing woman!

  10. 02.18.2009

    I think we were/are all amazing and it was honor to meet such a talented, strong group of women!

    I love the comparison……..

  11. 02.18.2009

    Love your thoughts…they’re poetic. There was such a sense of esprit de corps at BlissDom…not petty or divisive; I appreciated that.

    Soooo wish I had been able to go on that photo walk with you (you really have no idea how hard it was NOT to go :/), but in the end I was thankful to have completed a post I “had” to have written since when I got home? Our internet was down for two days! Yikes!

    Still wanting more of my Mishi…I think I’d have to fight for ya, though :).

    xo

  12. 02.18.2009

    What a great parallel! And the picture is brilliant!

    So glad I got to meet you.
    a

  13. 02.18.2009

    I love the analogy of the bricks and building to all of us! Don’t remember if we met at Blissdom, but if you want a full list of attendees, then please add my name and blog to the list. I also didn’t see @ramblingreba, who was kind enough to give me some personal lessons on how to use Twitter during the conference.

  14. 02.19.2009

    Thanks so much for including me! I friggin *love* your photos. They make me feel this inner peace and introspection. It’s a lovely thing to have a moment to let them all sink in. You are the voice that whispers, “Stop and smell the roses!” in our busiest moments. <3 to you.

  15. 02.23.2009

    Love the photo and the comparison…that list intimidates me. I want to visit every single link but can’t possibly. Maybe I’ll try to visit a couple a day because everyone was so wonderful!

  16. 02.24.2009

    I love this picture. so beautiful.

  17. 02.25.2009

    why that photo is amazing…thanks for including me in the list of awesome ladies!

  18. 02.26.2009

    How awfully kind of you to put this list together on your blog! Thanks very much. The photo you took is lovely.

  19. Sadly, my link up there no longer works. Oh well!
