"white rose"I  have been working on designing the invisibleawareness.org website and am now on my third re-do!  :-)

Unfortunately, that is how my creative juices work.  I do it over and over until I figure out what it is that I want.

Well, late last tonight it hit me.  I had this amazing idea.  Just one little problem, however.  I can’t make it happen without your help.

What I am trying to do (this rocks) is create a background mural, if you will, of photographs of lots of people with M.E./CFS.  I’m going to create a collage of all the photos I get and put them on the website as the background photo.

You’re probably wondering why I would do this, right?  Well, the name and tagline for the website it:

INVISIBLE AWARENESS:  raising M.E./CFS awareness … 1STORY @ aTIME.

Now can you see my vision.  What better background then one with everyone’s photographs on it!

If you decide you want to be part of this, then I need you to not only permit me to use your photograph on the website, but also to allow me to alter it in size if need be, and/or change it to black and white if necessary.  (I’m not sure if all the colors might be too much for our eyes).

Also, I will gladly take any size photos that you are willing to submit.  I would prefer the photos to be of you alone, however,  In addition, each person can submit up to three photos.  If I have a good turn out, that should be enough.

I will assume – please be clear about this – that if you send me your photos you are granting me permission to use them on the website (only).

Anyway, I am totally stoked because I think the background full of photos reinforces the tag line of, 1STORY@ aTIME!

So, if you want to be part of this project, please send your photos to the below address.

I have one other request, if you will so allow me.  I am creating a section on the website that will showcase M.E./CFS sufferers who have written books.  The books don’t necessarily have to be on M.E./CFS,  you just have to be a published author who is living with this illness.

If you would like to be interviewed and your book showcased on the website, please send me the following information.

1.  Your name

2.  Name of book and subject

3.  Photo of book

4.  Link to book

I have chosen the theme I use for this blog, as the theme for the Invisible Awareness, just so I can interview and showcase M.E./CFS authors!

Thank you!  I can’t wait to show you all what I have been up to!

Determined to continue forward,
