Too Busy

I wrote earlier in the week about the 1950's here in San Miguel and said that someone should be writing some of these stories. Some of my dear readers encouraged me to do it. I like to write in my journal. I like to write in my blog. All of that is pretty straight-forward writing. When I read a story written by my friend Dianne, I see how she sets up place and describes the characters. I'm sure I could try to do a better job of that in my writing but I don't think I could do it as well as she does. But to write a book or a screen play..........no, no, no. It would take time to learn about all the technical stuff, time to research the stories, time to do some serious writing, and time to do PR and marketing in a field that I know nothing about.

I'm already far too busy with my work. My photography.

I'm processing old work for a couple of projects. I'm still shooting new work. I have an idea or two for some new projects and those will take time. I have to get ready for a show next March.

And then there is living.....shopping for groceries, cooking, gardening, washing clothes....and doing fun things like seeing friends.

No, I'm not the one to write these histories of San Miguel although if I hear a good story, I'll blog about it for you.

Oh, the picture at the top has nothing to do with this blog entry except that I shot it this week with the Holga.

I like all of your photos, but the one today is stupendous. Being a (ex now) weaver, I'm going to guess that this is the treadle from some old, old loom? Am I right?

Wayne, sorry but this is a "bridge" on some children's playground equipment. But I love it that the image is open for interpretation.
