Hi there - I haven't written in my blog in so long! For a while I was so tied up in writing something else, that I used up all the words in my head on that, and afterwards it seemed to me that I didn't have any new ideas to write about - I'd already stated everything of possible interest that I had ever thought, and now I was only thinking about myself and my immediate circle and who was up to what and why, and what I should be up to, and whether I ought to buy new running shoes, or practice my guitar, and so forth, which does not make for a very interesting blog, unless you're a confessional type. I haven't even taken any nice photos (hence the non-photo above)! But recently I've been thinking a bit about the blog and what I want to do with it, and since I'm taking a time-out from a creative project now, I thought I'd try using some of my writing time on this and see what happens. I started writing a rather long post today with a few thoughts re: politics and economics, because the world is missing out on my opinions, and I'll finish it and post it, but I thought I'd say 'hello' first and disclaim that I'm haven't really decided to write a political or economic blog, actually I haven't really decided anything at all, except to try writing here again for at least a little while! So thank you to those of you who read me, and I hope I come up with a few things that are enjoyable or at least interesting.
