2014 [Feb. 1st, 2014|01:26 am]
Daniel A


A year since I last updated?
As the singer Sandy Denny sung "Who knows, where the time goes?"
Mainstream social media like Facebook had captured our main online interactions, but maybe commodification of its users and behind the scenes security concerns has seen it step over the peak?

 

A strange year (without looking for sympathy, or comment), health variations due to Crohns Disease affecting my home and work life has slowed things down.
In 12 months I have had one continuous period of 5 days without problems, a couple of spells of 3 days pain and problem free, but mostly every day has some level of pain and interruption. (A recent increase of prescription medication dosage and better sleep might be the beginning of a step forward).

 

The more active areas of my life have taken a step back - fortunately my field and trees mostly look after themselves,  musical interests and interactions have shifted to small venue short events, often informal,  rather than larger, louder all-night Goth gigs...

 

DIY is minimal, things put off because fatigue and lack of concentration kick in - Vehicle maint for the Landrover is at a trustable and reliable independent garage and the motorbike sold.

 

The present rain and wet conditions make for a gloomy expired month of January, but I'm optimistic that 2014 has potential...

s*d facebook, its much more fun on here. it's like the chill-out room in the club, and whilst all the young things are bouncing around in the dance room, us more sedantry types can relax. :-)

OK, LJ is possibly so laid back that its dead, but ...

Really sorry to hear you've been unwell though. Obviously nattered to you a few months back, but didn't realise things had been so bad.

Did you get the invite recently sent?
