Jonathan: Staring at a blank sheet of paper, the floor covered in crumpled sheets each with a few desultory lines …. But no that’s not the sort of block that’s been stifling my blogging for the past three weeks. It’s not a lack of ideas, but a lack of time, and quite simply the problem – with so many things happening – which subjects to record, which to pass over. But this evening I’ll at least make an attempt!
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.
Jonathan: So busy this past fortnight, part-drafted blogs piling up, photos not downloaded from the camera. I’ve stayed up late to break the ‘blogjam’. Sorry about the flood of messages! It’s gone midnight and outside is pitch dark: already the seasons are rolling on, and summer is looking tired and drawn (D: a bit like you – isn’t it time you came to bed?).
