why is it that I cannot put together more than one paragraph on the same topic?

Eleven days since my last post and I must admit that I cannot come up with one good reason why it has been so long. Sure I'm busy but not so busy that I don't spend at least an hour surfing the internet for some kind of inspiration that doesn't exist. I have the photoblog to contend with but if you take a look you'll see that I am failing at the post-a-day rule over there as well. I also have a few Moleskine notebooks that stay in my backpack as I carry them to and from work every day. I wrote in them every day for a couple of days. That was about a month ago. $14.99 well spent.

I spent yesterday in church. Perhaps you have heard of my cathedral Fenway Park. The sermon was pretty bad though with the Sox losing 12-3. You know what they say about a bad day at the ballpark...

I am not sure why but my blog reading has fallen off nearly as much as my blog writing. Since I found Photoblogs I have spent more and more time looking at photographs and less and less time reading blogs ( or anything else for that matter). I have been thinking about why that is. I have spent the last five years or so reading and trying to figure out what I should be writing. I wanted to be a writer. Still do, I think. But when I found photography and photoblogs I found the instant gratification alluring, almost addictive. I can take a picture, post it to my blog, and have other photographers take a look and send me their comments and ideas in minutes. Proofread? Edit? Think? Not so much. So how is it that I could just simply give up on something that was supposed to be a lifetime dream. I don't know. I've got issues.


As usual I'm late to the party with this but if you haven't yet seen the Aqua Teen Hunger Force -- Do yourself the favor.


I am, of course, probably only here writing this right now because I am trying to avoid all news baseball. The Red Sox lost about an hour ago, not long after the yankees won. The lead is down to a half of a game. I am very upset.

I've always wanted to have one of those cool things in the sidebar to show little pictures of the books I am reading. Sadly when it comes to HTML or CSS I'm all thumbs. If I could get it done right now it would say I am reading The Grapes of Wrath by Steinbeck. I read it every couple of years and have already warned The Wife that my mood may take a steady decline until I'm through with it. It happens every time.

Its all I've got for now folks. Its time for bed.
