The end result of two Hubbers Talents and Passions
We all love to write, which is why we are a part of this stellar community. When I began writing on HubPages.com, I needed an outlet to express myself and a way to organize my thoughts and get a hold of my life. My writing has developed over the past two years, and I am often mortified when I re-read some of my original work published on Hub Pages, and am amazed that I had some very kind supporters and believers before my writing became organized and innovative, and far before I began to believe in myself or my abilities.
Among these early supporters are kimberlyslyrics, Crazdwriter, Mike Lickteig, Cagsil,Ben Zoltak, Paradise7, Lorlie6, Blondepoet, Ken R Abell,Richieb799 and Daniel Carter. I was glad to be writing here, but afraid that I was not worthy of these more successful Hubbers. The Hubbers which I have listed, did not only welcome me and provide feedback to my work, they encouraged and supported my efforts to polish some fairly rusty skills.
Daniel Carter surprised me on March 10th of 2010 with an email. I rarely had people email me, so I was eager to see why another Hubber wanted to share. I expected for Daniel to make a correction to a silly mistake I had probably made on a hub. His email was free of corrections, but instead read, "I have this idea..."
Daniel had noticed that the photography that I post on the majority of my hubs was in fact, my photography. A number of times he had compliment the work and I would respond appreciative of the feedback, kindness and boost in self-confidence he was providing. So when I read his idea, I was excited and more than honored to be included.
This grand idea he shared with me would be a collaboration of our talents. Daniel Carter, if you do not already know, is a phenomenal composer, with talent that I myself am not blessed with. Daniel saw in my work a knack for writing truth which speaks of so many people’s trials, tribulations as well as triumphs. He also saw an eye for capturing things through a cameras viewfinder, and felt that merging his music with some sort of visual display which represents my passions would equal something worth noticing.
I started working immediately on the project, full of ideas and striving to provide something that was better than what he was expecting. Unfortunately, my laptop and backup drive did not have the same plans I had made for the project, and each device left me, going to a better place for electronic known as Blue Screen Heaven...
Normally, although an inconvenience, the death of an electronic device would have done little to damper my enthusiasm or rhythm, but this particular backup was my main backup drive which I had compiled everything that was anything onto it. I had just finished organizing thousands of digital images taken over the past decade, and now was at a loss as to where to start pulling archives to recreate my library.
Along with my electronics disaster, I finally found a job after a year of looking. The new job as well as various adjustments within my personal life adjusting to the new 'working' me, allowed for little extra activity. Daniel understood, and did not push. In fact I am pretty sure he figured I had forgotten about the project. Although late, I have completed the video for one of the musical compositions he sent me back in March 2010.
Last week I emailed Daniel, letting him know that I had completed our presentation which combines his gift for composing beautiful melodies with my ability to photograph and then create online media. On Monday, Daniel responded with gratitude and approval of the video which showcases Claudia's Dance, one of his many beautiful pieces.
Daniel Carter and I have made our YouTube Debut with the posting of; It all Started With a Kiss, Monday evening. Due to Hub Pages being the meeting ground for Daniel and myself, I thought it only appropriate to share our project with the community. Let us know what you think of the results of this collaboration which is our Combined Talents- and what can happen when Hubbers Unite.
