Gone fishing

By David Parkinson


It’s almost six months to the day since the first post went up here. Since then, I have published another nineteen posts, acquired a regular collaborator in Tom Read, and published a number of posts by other contributors. I still hope that this blog will find a niche in the local media ecology, and I’m prepared to hang on for the long term and see where this experiment is heading. I’m happy with the way it’s going so far.

I’m always gratified when people let me know that they’re out there reading and (I hope) enjoying what they read here. I welcome more contributions from more people who have something to say about what’s going on in their backyard, neighbourhood, region, country, and on the entire planet. There is enough going on to keep a whole gang of bloggers on the go; we just need to create that gang from whatever materials come to hand.

But for now, like most people around here, I’m going to seize the day and take some downtime. I’ll be busy with various projects through the summer — helping to run the 50-mile eat-local challenge and organizing the Exhibit Hall at the annual Fall Fair among them — and ready to come charging out of the blocks towards the end of the summer. I reserve the right to break my few weeks’ silence if something major happens. Otherwise, you’ll be hearing from me again sometime in August.

¡Hasta luego!

    Hey David,
    Just wanted to let you know I’m reading and thinking about your posts (notice I didn’t say enjoying ’cause sometimes I don’t enjoy… but they always make me ponder.) Seize the day for sure.

    Thanks for reading! Enjoyment is overrated anyway.

    Good for you David – When I am up the lake there is no Internet or TV and it is like living a vacation every day. The down side it does make coming to town a bit crazy to get all the email and blog posting done. Thanks for stopping by to read about my peas in a pot. I would be honoured to write for you about intensive, succession and container gardening if you think your readers would be interested. Just let me know. – Margy (Powell River Books)
