I've had five days off to wander at will around our home. It's been a great time to relax, and work out a few things that I've been thinking about. I fiddled around with the blog yesterday; the new banner is a photo of the backyard looking out from the chook house, complete with the flowering choko vine. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts on the change.
If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know that I thrive on change. I become very uncomfortable when things stay the same for too long. Maybe that's one of the reasons I suit my lifestyle so well, everyday there is something new. There are many challenges and things to learn and although this life is slow, low energy, thoughtful and comforting, it's also dynamic and ever-changing. There is a moral force here that keeps us alive, interested and eager for the dawn of each new day.
One of the things I've been thinking about these past few days is whether I should try to get my blog published. Some of you will know that I wrote a book about simple living a couple of years ago and couldn't get it published. These are changed times now, I believe many people need to know a lot of what I write about and I wonder if there would be more chance for it now. Of course, the book has been absorbed into the blog over the past year but I'm sure there is enough here to make a book. I have all the photos and could add a bit to it to fill the gaps.
Do you think there is a chance for this blog to be re-worked and published as a book? Would you buy it? If there is a good response I will send this post and comments to the publishers, along with my covering letter. I need your help on this, please let me know your thoughts - whether they are for or against the idea. I will keep on blogging no matter what - book or no book. This blog is my window to the world and I can't see myself giving that up. I'd appreciate as many of you as possible letting me know your thoughts.
I'm staying at home today. I'm working on a manual for my organisation and I need peace and quiet to get it started, something that is in short supply at my desk at work. So I'll be popping in and out during the day to read your comments. I thank you for reading and being part of my day.
