I’ve just realised it’s been a month since my last post.
I could pull out lots of excuses – I’ve been busy, I haven’t had my computer, I haven’t been online a lot. Some of that would be true – during my two crazy weeks travelling around the Spanish countryside with 100 forestry students I barely had a minute to myself, let alone time to update this blog. And then Granada. Well, lying around in a hammock takes up a lot of time and energy, okay?
But really, what I’ve realised is the need to maintain momentum. The longer the time between posts, the more I feel I have to catch up on. The more I feel I have to catch up on, the more daunting the prospect of posting is, and so on and so forth. I guess it’s kind of like replying to that message or email a friend has sent, in that the longer it goes unanswered, the more meaningful you think your reply has to be, whereas in fact a short ‘hi, I’m here’ update would probably suffice, or would at least avoid that pissed off ‘why haven’t you replied?!’
So that’s what this post is. Getting me back into the mindset of blogging, letting you all know I’m here, and that no, I haven’t forgotten about it. And that a bunch of (real) updates are on their way…hopefully soon!
