Nothing Stands Still

Notice anything unusual? I’ve been working behind the scenes today trying to change a few things around here.

Most important of all, I finally updated to the latest version of WordPress, without a single problem.

That inspired me to change themes, something I’ve wanted to do for quite a while but just haven’t felt I wanted to mess around with the site’s CSS style sheet, something I have to do to ensure that material I’ve quoted is set off properly and doesn’t look like something I’ve written.

Things will probably look a little different every day around here for a while. Although I’ve already managed to change the code that I felt I had to change before I could even change themes, there’s a lot more code that I want to change to make this theme feel more like my own.

First, I want to change the photo at the top of the page, but that will entail finding shots that fit that format, which might not be that easy to do.

Then I want to change the background color and the color of the links, and then fine tune the other fonts. I’m heading to Mt. Rainier tomorrow and Vancouver one day next week, so don’t expect miracles overnight, but hopefully you’ll like the new look and find some of the changes make it more enjoyable to read this site.

Moral ethics are the basis of world peace — The Dalai Lama

Yesterday’s blog entry reminded me of another blog entry I’d planned awhile ago and then put off because I had pictures I wanted to post.

In general, I’ve learned to avoid Twitter like the plague, but there’s one Twitter feed that I’ve continued to download daily since my earlier exploration of the media: The Dalai Lama’s:

In a world that seems to increasingly be dominated by stupidity, there’s something refreshing about reading at least one intelligent thought a day.
