Wow, looks like it’s been nearly a month since I posted anything here. October has been a wild ride of working with worts, being sick, doing astrological readings on semi-professionally, and mulling over a post I have been wanting to write about thoughts have been difficult to put into words. Well, words that don’t sound insane anyway. Still I am determined to write it, because to paraphrase one of my very favorite bloggers (Gordon of RuneSoup), if it doesn’t scare you a little to publish it your post maybe doesn’t deserve to be written in the first place.
Oh yeah, and I splashed water on my keyboard so now my backspace key doesn’t work. Do you have any idea how hard it is to write without a functioning backspace key? I honestly think I delete more letters than I type. Having to select with the mouse and then Ctrl-X everything…is…so…slow.
While I’m thinking about future directions for this blog, I realize that my photos leave a lot to be desired. My camera is pretty lame and only semi-functional at this point, and I don’t have the space for really good staging/lighting. My finances currently don’t permit me to rectify either of these situations. But soon I hope. For now I’m hoping this blog will have just enough useful information to make up for the lack of Pinterest-worthy pics. (Speaking of that…don’t get me wrong, I loves me some Pinterest. But really? Are we so superficial that a blog’s photos determine its readership more than its informational content?* We all like to look at pretty pictures and no doubt about it, they do enhance a blog, but I roll my eyes nd heave a sigh at the massive amount of herbal- and natural-health-care-themed bullshit that gets pinned just because it comes with a cute little graphic or a photo of some model pretending she has a headache or constipation of whatever. Ok, rant over…for now.)
Anyway, stay tuned for some thoughts on elderberries, which have been my friends in this season of seemingly unremitting illness.
*Of course I’m not talking about blogs about photography here! Just blogs that purport to have information and/or interesting thoughts, which I dearly hope this one does.
