This is a wonderful “About” page. We are all a jumble of contradictions. Thanks so much for visiting my site and choosing to follow along.

Yes we definitely are. 🙂
Hi. I nominated your blog for the Premio Dardos award. Whether you chose to accept it or not, I hope it brings more readers to your wonderful writing. Check out the post at http://mythsofthemirror.com/2015/01/26/premio-dardos-award/
I have just checked out the post. I am so deeply honoured that you nominated me, thank you so much! I shall be making a post shortly with my 15 nominees (just did some research about how it all works)!
Thank you for following my blog. I look forward to reading yours.
Greetings … Frank here from Cincinnati. I like to think … but probably too much at times. I try to be honest and friendly, but others seem to make doing so difficult. I’ve been blogging longer than the average blogger, and enjoy interacting with the others who stop by my little corner of the world, which is quite eclectic.
Greetings and salutations, Frank. It is nice to hear from and about you. People do seem to make honesty and friendliness difficult, don’t they. I hope you persevere, though, and manage to break through that tough cellulose wall! I like to think our minds are very eclectic and to have that reflected in your writing is art indeed 🙂
Oh yes … sometimes first impressions aren’t so true … then again, others are simply too difficult … or clueless.
Thanks for becoming a subscriber. Happy blogging.
Hello. I just say your comment on Tric’s “My Thoughts on a Page” site and was intrigued by your name. I was both relieved and disappointed that your real name is not Ms. Bream and your parents did not call you Ocean. A bream is a kind of fish, isn’t it? I hope you don’t mind my asking how you came to select this interesting name for your blog.
Hello to you too! Thank you for your comment! 🙂 And welcome to my blog. Well back in 2011 when I was still green about the world, I read a beautiful book called ‘The Spellbook of Listen Taylor’, and there was a sentence in that book that went, “How is your ocean bream, my love?”. It fascinated me because I had never heard of this ‘ocean bream’ before and I imagined it was something magical and beautiful, like the end of a rainbow or the shimmery light you can see when water reflects the sunlight! I was too scared to look it up because I worried it would be something mundane and all the magic would disappear. When I did find out that ocean bream was just a fish, I decided that it wasn’t such a bad name for a fish and adopted the name for my blog because, if you ignore the fishy bit, ‘ocean bream’ is such a fanciful name! 🙂
Well, it does sound nice, doesn’t it. Makes me think about moon breams in the twilight or something like that. 🙂
It is interesting how sometimes the sound and the meaning of a word just don’t seem to go together at all. For example, even though I know puce is a kind of brownish purple, I can’t stop thinking of it as a pale creamy color like an old scar. It just sounds to me like that’s what it should mean and my brain is simply not interested in the dictionary’s opinion.
How funny! It’s true, some words should not be assigned to the meanings that they are assigned to, but alas, they are, and we must be perpetually disappointed.
Maybe we could storm into a dictionary and hold all the adverbs hostage or something until the editors agree to change some of the definitions…
I’m down for that. It’s about time something was done about this abomination of good and beautiful words.
Torches and pitchforks at the ready!
I love your about page and your blog. You’re so raw and I admire that a lot. Your work is great as well. Definitely giving you a follow.
I’m just another human being on a quest to find one’s purpose. My ultimate goal is to become the best version of who I can possible be. I’m not quite sure about exactly what my dreams and aspirations are, but I love to write, to read, travel, take pictures, and music. Perhaps, I am truly no different from the rest of humanity. I’m looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Thank you very kindly! 🙂 I think that is the best possible ultimate goal, to be the best versions of ourselves. I see you like to create and explore then. I too look forward to reading your work 🙂
You’re welcome! And yes I do enjoy to create and explore haha. Thank you I appreciate it very much 🙂
Your writing makes me smile. It’s poetic.
Thank you very much, Tasneem 🙂 Your comment made me smile.
