Just playing around with blog templates again. I enjoy revamping (at the push of a button) to get a new look and feel to the ole’ net real estate…
Looking at my sidebar, it seems quite cluttered, but I like the header image (although I don’t seem able to tweak it…perhaps that is a paid feature).
I have been listening to a lot of itunes music lately – Bob Dylan, Bruce Cockburn, David Crowder, Matt Maise…seems to be more organic music, more rootsy. I think this is a big reflection of where I am at in my head…trying to pair things down, simplify what I can simplify and reorder (or reinforce) my priorities. Hence the lack of blogging.
Lately reading in our house has been relegated to the bathroom. We have two children, and I am a full time teacher; we have little to no personal time. For an English major and book lover, this is a hard adjustment to make. When I was in my last year of University, I would read five novels a week….a bit extreme, I must admit, but it reflects my experience with ‘paper technology’.
Needless to say, reading a novel or anything of length takes a great deal of time with this new process.
Honestly, it is like intellectual deprivation. I have to say that side of my brain feels a little underfed, but I also understand that this is a season. There will be time for reading and pondering, but now is a time of growth in our family.
