Even though it looks like my Mum is about to cheekily poke her tongue out at the photographer it reminds me of Ivan Bilibin’s beautiful illustration which I used on this post and currently on my 404 error page.

Thinking about how I like to tinker with my blog makes me realise how I use it to think around things. Playing with the esentially quite boring html and css that make up this website leaves space in my mind for thoughts to coalesce.

This tinkering whilst not as enjoyable or as effective as walking in Cornwall is useful to me. Blogging acts as a meditative. My posts are just the outlines of these thoughts that I stumble over. Life gets dibs over my navel gazing. For example, I am going out now to finish the weekends jobs around the house and yard.

Til next time.
