Jonathan: The past fortnight has been so busy there’s scarce been time to think. At the end of a long day, the mind wants rest from its many branches of labour, and would gladly muse away the time before sleep encroaches in detached reflection on the day’s doings. But the time left for such things is too short and all mental energy is drained away. And thus blogging is neglected. Mornings seem to be better, but I need more time between being up and ready to go, and the actual going. I usually leave the house (to see to the livestock) at 0730 or shortly after – very rarely sooner. So being up even say 15mins earlier would make all the difference.
