No, I didn’t get abducted by aliens (although I have a cool foggy pic).
But where have I even been?
Do blog platforms have relevance anymore, given the transition to face-o-gram or snap-tock? I think as a society we are increasingly crippled by inattention disorder – the addictive quest for new and shiny stimulus.
If it takes longer than a minute to consume, it’s too long, move on – tl;dr as they say. If I have to read it to appreciate it – move on, video and click like is all it needs.
I’m semi guilty of this – I post on Instagram more than anything, because it takes no effort and is a half replacement feel good for actual content and connection. And 12 months of no blogging later, no audience, no meaning and no narrative.
And so it was time to take the kids back home so they had time to unwind before school started. This is the bit that’s hard – that still having fun but knowing that its almost time to go bit. Still – have fun we did and Ruth cooked us all a lovely late lunch/early tea as we played in the last of the English summer warmth.
We had a few hours, so I took some nice photos in the lovely light she has in her house.
