Introducing The "Social Creatives" Section (Meeting Place For The Artistic, The Crafty, The People With Unusual Ideas, etc)
Welcome to this new section where I will be showcasing the "Arty", the "Crafty", and those people who come up with unusual ideas (the more off-the-wall the better as far I am concerned).

Unusually - the name for this section of my blog was not totally my idea.  At least part of the credit for the idea goes to Olivier Leger, who is one of the humans I want to introduce to you in a blog post (his brother, Matthieu, is another one).

But I have decided to start with pointing you in the direction of one of my friends who has made several appearances elsewhere in my blog (in nearly every single one of his many "personas") but I decided to put my favourite of his sites in one place.

I originally met Derek Lee at a Creative Writing group we both went to.  To be perfectly honest I think his writing is a lot better than mine.  He has found that elusive way of writing which ensures that you find something interesting in the most mundane things he writes.  Also, he writes in such a way that unexpected things start firing in my brain every time I read something he had written.  The most unusual (and memorable) was "Another Brick In The Wall" starting on a loop in my brain when I was trying to get to sleep after reading a blog post he had written on frothyfilosofy.wordpress.com/.  If you would like your mind expanded, twisted, and knotted into submission I would strongly suggest you read this blog.  (I have given up attempting to compare my writings to his - his win no contest.)

Not only is he good at "Straight" Creative Writing - he is pretty good at poetry as well - have a read of this site - poetrypond.wordpress.com/.

But if there is a reason for me to be totally envious of him it his wizardry with a camera.  Combined with a view of life more "sideways" than mine (although this might have something to do with his profession as a Clinical Psychologist) it gives his photographs their own individual stories (either intentionally or unintentionally).

www.perceptualemotion.com/ is under construction as we speak but there are some brilliant photos on the homepage (a bit of a slideshow).  Keep checking back because you will find some amazing photos on it when it is finished,

If you cannot wait for him to finish building his photography website you can always look at his Flickr page.  www.flickr.com/photos/derek-john-lee/
I keep attempting to talk him into exhibiting his work in real life - I honestly think his photos are that good,
