...a review by Guest Blogger Mimi Lenox of Mimi Writes
Nestled in the countryside of East Sussex, Great Britain are magic words and children and monster rhymes, flowing brooks, crooked trees - a myriad of colors known as Annelisa. I have to tell you a secret.
She is having a love affair.
With the sky.
An artist's soul, mother's heart. A poet. Passion for peace and all things lovely. Champion and advocate for cancer research (she bared her head recently in a shaving ceremony that was not for the fainthearted. You can see her Baring It All HERE)
Then, in true Annelisa style, she wrote a whimsical lyric about her newfound beauty.
She can spin a tale with words and shape and sparkling vocabularly. That's for sure.
But one thing captures her essence more than anything, in my humble opinion: her photographs. They're extraordinary. Annelisa seems to see things that aren't there. Or....are they? Her pictures move me. They capture my attention. They speak. They tell a story.
She likes to wander through the nature trails in her corner of the world and share her findings with us. The trees want to talk, the brook sings, the wind blows. Annelisa knows how to capture a moment.
Although it was difficult to choose a photo for this article (they're ALL beautiful), this sunrise shot taken on November 7, 2006 from the window of her home has always been favorite.She also has an award winning site called Heroines and Heroes, which is a celebration of friendship told in clever rhyme. It is thoughtful and selfless. Just like Annelisa.
Please do yourself a favor and stop by to have a cup of java with this lovely lass. You'll find a few surprises lurking behind twisted bark, maybe see angel wings in her car windshield (really!) and before you know it, you will have spent more time than you intended gazing into the lens of her magic camera.
Words That Flow from her pen and her insightful spirit are captivatingly unique. Lucky for us she chooses to share.
I hope you'll tell her that Mimi Lenox and Bestest Blog sent you.
Have a look!
