Cultivation

I still haven't finished Tess of the D'Urbervilles, so I'm not ready to comment on it yet it, except to say that it is even more insightful than I remember it, perhaps because my own insights into society have changed so dramatically over time.

We've had relatives visiting all week and the weather has been cloudy; so, I haven't had a chance to get out photographing this week and probably won't at least until Friday.

That doesn't mean I haven't had time to keep up with all my internet connections. I'm still reading a large number of blogs, and playing Scrabble games on Facebook, not to mention reading the usual news online. I forget how much I'm actually reading online until I go on vacation for a week and am faced with thousands of entries on my RSS reader. Faced with all of them, I almost invariably delete them all and pickup with new entries.

I'm assuming that many of the readers here also read many of the blogs that were on my blogroll (the one that, as Mike pointed out this week, hasn't been restored yet), but here's a entry from steve at the golden fish that fascinated me. Just be aware that it will take longer than the usual half minute you spend here to view it, but it seems well worth the time spent:

  1. hi loren,
    thanks for dropping by the golden fish!! i’m really glad that the interview with bob carter caught your attention. i think that there are two more featuring his thinking on youtube and perhaps when i find the time i’ll view them and see what they’re all about.
    thanks also for your continuing series of extraordinary photographs. i am amazed every time i visit your blog at the quality of images you share.

  2. Well worth the 15 minutes of watching and listening. Tolkien wrote that the path goes ever on, too. Welcome reminders on a grey day when my physical energy is as low as it’s ever been on the path I chose long ago. Still, there’s plenty to be grateful for. Your creative energy is an inspiration, loren.

  3. Exquisite Loren – particularly that last shot. I have many in my garden at the moment – some single and some double. They hybridise here so that eventually they tend to go back to the wild variety – but what a joy. Ther colloquial name here is Grandmother’s Bonnet.

What do you think?
