About the changing world all around us

Poetry of change

I call my new blog Metamorphoses as it is a blog dedicated to creation and change in life, in learning and in the self. The name is borrowed from the Roman poet Ovid’s 15 book long narrative poem from between 2 and 8 A.D. The books of Metamorphoses describes the creation and history of the world in the form of Roman mythology, and was a source of inspiration to the great author and poet William Shakespeare.

This blog is not intended to be a literary blog, however. I just have a personal interest in literature, poetry, and mythology. The idea behind my blog is that I am going through a personal change and growth process, in fact we all are. As I get ready to go through the process of doing serious research for my Masters Disertation, I have learned that nothing in this world is fixed, but everything is in a constant state of change. A flow of constant transition from the moment we are created until long after we disappear from this planet, our society is also in a constant state of transition, as is our goverments, our countries, even right down to the house I live in, the earth I walk on, the air I breath and the sky over my head…everything is in a constant state of change.

I want to document my growth and change, growing interests and new discoveries with others and have an interaction with the rest of the world. How exciting it would be to make a new ‘discovery’ in my every day life and share that discovery with someone who is learning about the same in another corner of the globe. I hope that many of you will join me again and again to create interesting discusions and insights to enrich all our lives.

Welcome to Metamorphoses!

  1. Congrats my dear – what a wonderful idea of a new blog!
    You know I’ve seen your growth and it has been wonderful to be a part of it 🙂

  2. Well you always told me education pays, and I am here to show that it pays in more ways then just financially. Thanks for always supporting me!

  3. Congratulations on what promises to be a most fascinating blog! I look forward to reading your posts because your theme echoes my original intention. I’ve wandered away from the straight and narrow but isn’t that what it’s all about? Growth can sometimes take you in unexpected directions.

    DianeCA We need to wander where life takes us. Life can’t be lived on the straight and narrow you know, the fun is in the hills and the curves! Thanks so much for stopping by, its exciting to have people to ‘talk’ to here!

  4. I’m sure the study of metamorphose must be very, very interesting. I did studies in law several years ago and have a master of Public Law. Bit the best things have an end (I love study) and I have to work because To found a family you need money! And I wanted a lot of time for my family. So I became teacher in primary school because you didn’t need to go away in onother country of France. And Primary teacher was , as so many little girls my first wishes when I was a child. Even if I don’.’t use in my daily worklife my old knowiing in law I have always keep the want to study and learn forever. So I enjoy there are blogs like yours!

    DianeCA: We have a lot in common as I have earlier worked in a school and a preschool. Working with children may well be more rewarding that Law anyway. I also love to study and learn, but it means I am one busy lady. I study full time and work 50%-plus being Mrs. RennyBA and kids. But then life is an adventure!

  5. I just wanted to welcome you to the blogosphere with your own blog! Great! Just what we waited for 🙂

    Creation and change in life, and learning is very important parts of LIFE indeed! There would be no life worthy of be called life without it!

    CU around…

    DianeCA: Thanks for the warm welcome! I love your new template and have added you to my blogroll. You are a blogging goddess!!

  6. Congrats Diane! And welcome to blogosphere!

    DianeCA Thank you very much and glad you stopped by!

  7. Sounds like the sort of blog I like. I often describe my blog and blogging activities as engaging in micro-conversations (I want more than, “Hi! Nice post.”, but less than several hours of conversation over coffee.)

    I haven’t read Ovid. Maybe I will, maybe I won’t.

    Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment.

    DianeCA: Hi Richard! Thanks for popping in to my world. I hope to keep the blog interesting for my readers. I have high goals now…we’ll see how I hold up. I took a course in classic literture at The University of NY about a century ago (smile) and the metaphor seemed to fit my life right now.

  8. Hi Diane! This is great that you have your own blog! I’ll be back a little later to read more details on your posts above this one. I love learning too and hearing different viewpoints. I’m gonna add you to my blogroll! 🙂

    DianeCA: Hi! Thanks for stopping by. You are on my blogroll too! Hope to see you often 🙂

  9. Hello Diane,

    I have read your husband’s blog intermittently for over a year, but hadn’t picked up that he was married to an American! So another expat to keep up with…

    Your new blog looks fascinating. I am also very interested in ch-ch-ch-ch-changes. I like to document some of them that are happening around me in the area of rural France where I live, but am also keen on technological change, changes in relationships due to Web 2.0, etc.

    I’ve put you on my Google Reader (I limit myself to 50 slots, so you should feel honored, LOL!)

    As a forty-something (is that your age group?) I feel like the past few years have been a true time of metamophosis for me too. Blogging has helped me keep this process positive.

    DianeCA: Guilty…I am a 40 something as well LOL! I feel like I am reaching a new high point in my life in relation to understanding much more about ‘how things work’ for example…and what is important and what is not worth getting worked up over. I am honored to have a slot!!!

    More to come…
