On vacation

Sometime back in May 2011 I decided to stop blogging. I haven’t decided to start again. Maybe I will and maybe I won’t. In the meantime, feel free to wander around in here. If you break it, you buy it.

Today I’m off to Vancouver; tomorrow to Kamloops; Thursday to Ymir in the Kootenays. I’m heading out to Ymir for the twelfth annual Gathering of the BC Food Systems Network, an organization which connects together the people involved in food-security work all around BC. I’ll be out there meeting amazing people, catching up with friends, learning what’s going on out there on the front lines, and participating in a roundtable discussion about cooperatives and food-security projects.

Have a good week. I’ll post again once I’m back in action.

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!
