Christmas Decorations – Shot in poor lighting on an iPhone 7+.
After the decision to shut down MintyBanana earlier this year in January, I spent the year away from any kind of journaling or social media to recollect myself and regroup. The world has been sorta crazy since then, lots of things have happened, a lot of which I wish I had collected. Maybe not publicly, but definitely in some sort of prettier way.
I had gotten a notice a few weeks ago that my domain was going to be released into the wild (expire), and after much thought, here we are, back again, alive and kicking. If you know me from many a yesteryear, you would know. I can’t stay away that long. Under the warm blanket of a rain water shower last night, I remembered why I had begun blogging in the first place. I had wanted the chance to have some kind of remanent of myself, from my own words. I wanted people to know who I was if I died. …Maybe I’ve seen too many re-runs of V for Vendetta… But sometimes maybe just to write about how my day was, or what I did, or even what I ate. Sometimes the monotony of life is what helps us remember what to be grateful for. And we certainly all need a little bit more of that in our lives.
I’ve reincarnated this blog as a hybrid private/public one. In January it was sort of brought to my attention if you will, that I should keep some thoughts to myself, so, despite needing to share my thoughts with the world, I shall keep some mystery from you. It’s probably for the better anyway. Free speech and free will and all that. Some posts will be password protected, available to my family members if they wish to see a more private world of mine. But everything else, from food to crafting, tips and tricks, all yours for the devouring. Like usual.
