This is a comment I have been considering dropping on certain blogs:
‘Hi there –
Just to let you know that I am un-following in line with my new policy that, no matter how much I may enjoy their posts, I will discontinue going to sites of bloggers who show no evidence of occasional return visits. Bye, now!’
I believe that if people simply want a showcase, they should be content with a website. Blogging, to me, entails interaction, and if there isn’t any then I’d prefer to spend my valuable time on those who do provide it, even if they do it infrequently.
And should I offer the courtesy of the message, or should I simply fold my tents like the Arabs and silently steal away?
While the family were playing with snow and horses and rivers and things up in the mountains, we went for Sunday feast at Sr-i-L’s Berea home, from which this is a late afternoon view.
We discussed footwear and maritime vessels and red melty stuff, as well as green vegetables and royals.
Whenever I visit I spend some minutes staring at this wonderful poster from post-impressionist Pierre Bonnard’s portrait of his Madame Bonnard (presumably Marthe) and dog. It quite amazes me that what generally starts off by looking like meaningless splurges will gradually assume depth and definition, and then come into perfect perspective, from the foreground figures to the tree and the stream, to the middle-distance group, and to the distant town.
