When I'm online now, it's usually to totally relax -- to watch documentaries or browse necklaces on etsy.
I think Facebook ruined blogging for me a little, not because I took my blogging energies to Facebook, but because I resisted using Facebook for so many years, and the principle of the thing -- that we should be creating real community and truly talking with our friends and going outside and experiencing things -- holds true for blogging.
At the same time, I do still love some blogs, when their purpose is in no way trying to be a replacement for face-to-face interactions. But I guess I just don't feel like I have the time in my life right now to live AND to tell about it. Or maybe I do want to tell about it, but in my paper journal. And I want to do a better job of connecting with friends.
One good thing that came out of this (well, two) is that we've started taking more photos (even if I didn't find the time to share them), AND those photos have revealed to us that we have a really great life, filled with love and laughter and food and nature. I sorta suspected our lives were great, but now we have proof.
Maybe (probably) we'll pick this up again sometime.
I'll leave you with some pictures from the last week or so:
