Oooh, baby baby it's a wild blog <guitar>
So, hey wow read.write.as, how ya been?
Super duper amazing day. Description literally (ha ha) wouldn't do justice to it.
Likewise, your reading this couldn't possibly rise to the level of your not staring zombotically at a screen.

Talk about great post timing relative to what I wrote above! ;–)

Well, I just so happen to like it too. :–) I'd also add “pacing” to “tone” – both within individual posts, and between them. I dare say I could set my blogging watch by it.

This weeked we hit a winery armed with paper/pencils/pens, and I finally got back with the kind of journaling I really enjoy: a mix of drawing, thoughts, squiggles, and paragraphs. Throw it on the stack (need to remember to consolidate the stacks one of these days..), forget about it, hopefully smile and grin a bit somewhere down the road as it maybe jogs free bits 'o memory.
I'm liking how that method results in a little for a lot of effort, but it's rather concentrated quality. Also, the “lot of effort” part implies significant time relative to how quickly I can knock out something like this. It's enough of an effort that I probably don't want to do another right away – in contrast with blogging, where I could write endlessly, therein often swallowed by my own familiarity-bred contempt.
Still loving the power and brevity of this:
"abide in awareness with no illusion of person you will be instantly free and at peace"
