I have been active on Twitter over the NHS Bill, but the main thing is that I've been doing stuff and making things in Meatspace - another word for the real world, the environment, people, society. Everything. The stars, trees, water. Chlorophyll.
I've been doing stuff.
I have constructed:
- a bench seat in the woods.
- A pair of gates to my veg patch
- A hazel bender polytunnel
- Cut lots of wood
- Found a viable way of making charcoal (indirect method) using a biscuit tin
All of this has kept me away from my computer, which is OK because I am happier to be doing stuff. full-on blogging is not good for the soul - or the mind. On the other hand, I feel guilty that I am not contributing my infinitesimal drop of political thought to the ocean of political debate - particularly in the matter of what to do about Syria.
But now I have confessed up to what has been happening, and perhaps after I have done a few blogs on my work, I hope to be able to take up blogging regularly again, but with a better virtual/real life balance.
Hope springs eternal.
