A few words

I’m not sure why I quit writing this blog back in 2010. I didn’t decide to quit. I certainly didn’t stop walking or trying to follow Jeffers’s advice. I wanted to write posts—in fact, I did write them in my head, all the time. If you scroll back a bit you’ll see that I made an attempt at actual words on the screen in 2012, then promptly wandered off again. Somehow, I had nothing to say. Or, to be more precise, I had nothing to say that didn’t seem to run counter to the premise of the blog. There was too much introspection. Too much turning inward, not outward. So now I’m back, with (pretty much) images only. I used to resist letting a camera guide my walks, but I’ve gradually surrendered to it over the past couple of years. Perhaps I feel the world less now because of that, but I think maybe I see it better. Seems a decent trade.
