Originally this blog was about time and was called ‘this five minutes’. I wanted to capture peak moments, moments of acute emotion and observation, and I wanted to enjoy and share them through words. I tethered them in time and place, tying them to numbers on a clock and names on a map, and to markers of realities.
But even five minutes can be too unruly (it really can) and the Blog shuddered and quaked and quickly slipped into a chrono-synclastic infundibulum.
I blame WordPress. They should have built stronger sites.
The Blog tells me she saw The Sky Whale in there. (The Sky Whale had advice, but Blog won’t tell me what it was.) I pulled Blog out of the chrono-synclastic infundibulum and calmed her down. So I settled for a less flighty Blog about reading, writing, place AND time. That’s okay. Time has stopped winging away in all directions and has a few more friends to talk to, I hope. We’ll see how they get on.
I’ve been rereading quite a bit lately. (Don’t you love words that begin with ‘re’)? It’s like travelling into the past. (Calm down Blog, calm down.) I hope to be sharing some reading experiences here very soon, and some writing experiences. Looking forward to it. In the meantime I hope you enjoy this credit sequence from It’s About Time. (I pinched a phrase from the song for the title of this post.)
