living in the past


Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.

James Thurber (1894-1961) author & cartoonist

i seem to be having a difficult time getting into the groove of regular posting on the mouse and have fallen dreadfully behind keeping up with the goings-on in the bloggyhood. no doubt this is a combination of post-vacation syndrome, playing catch-up, and enjoying a spell of some mighty fine autumn weather.

i'm happy to report that i've gone through my vacation snaps and created several sets of albums on flickr. this may be the first time i've ever created more than a single set of photos from a wander! i linked the first two of these sets (monument valley and zion national park) the first week i was back....

here on the mouse, i've have to move on from my vacation mind and start being in the present - ha ha! however, if anyone is interested in photos from chaco culture national historical park, hovenweep national monument, or looking at random (and hopefully interesting) snaps from albuquerque or santa fe the pics are up but you are on your own. i just hope you enjoy the armchair travel should you click and go.

I like that you link to your blog on FB, as I seem to be there most often. Haven't been reading many blogs. Certainly not posting. but getting out in the fresh air and getting yardwork done: now, that's a good thing!

I say enjoy the weather...you can blog when there's a few feet of snow outside! ha.

I love that quote under the first photo.

Oh, so sometimes even you do falter in the blogging department? I guess it happens to eveyone.

Flickr is fun but very time-consuming -- I never get as many pictures up there as I want to. I will try to take some time to look at yours, as we have friends in Santa Fe, and I would really like to go there sometime.

When I saw the title Living in the Past I immediately thought of Jethro Tull - and then there below the post was the vid! I've also been a bad blogger - I think it's because Facebook sidetracks me so much. Maybe I'll get Maurice to take over blogging duties - that's if I can get him to stop eating cheese for a second or two.
