blogging dilemma, and winter garden pictures
This feels like the longest time ever between posts. Getting back from 3 weeks in Myanmar (Burma), there was so much to do I felt quite overwhelmed. In that situation the only thing to do was immerse myself in the garden. So the garden got filled before the fridge.
I realize I have a blogging dilemma. I have committed myself to a slow lifestyle - as much as possible. Certainly I'm committed to slow gardening and slow blogging, since they are 'hobbies' that are central to the way I experience and think about the meaning of life.
I used to do a post every week, but lately I don't seem to find the time or energy. The only way to post more frequently is to rush. Rush, fast, speed - the blog is supposed to demonstrate a different way of living. But life can be tough. Sometimes you just have to choose the least undesirable alternative.
The dilemma is:
Posting less often (meaning maybe hardly ever)
Fast posting (meaning less satisfying process for me but at least I get to post more often).
Anyway, this is a Fast Post. It has turned into a reflection on the dilemma of someone who is not very good at multi-tasking, but who nevertheless has a multitude of tasks to attend to.
Current blogging tasks are:
1. Visit and comment in the blogs of cyberfriends. It's so important to keep up the wonderful reciprocity of the blogosphere, and all too easy to fall behind ...
2. Sort out my thoughts about nature and gardens in Myanmar for the next post, and cull the 500+ photos I took so I can choose a few of my favourites for the post.
While I'm at it, this post might as well also show some pictures of how the back garden's doing this winter. Some are taken from a different angle to the usual shots - from the tall Willow Myrtle (Agonis flexuosa).
