Why blog?

June 17th, 2012 by

I’ve been thinking about blogging for awhile and kept putting it off.  With a trip to Peru & the USA coming up it seems a good time to get into it so that I know what I’m doing (more or less) before I want to be posting on a regular basis.

The study leave which will take us across the Atlantic is focussing on Arts & Crafts in Ministry and Worship.  It will start with a Traidcraft Meet the People tour in Peru.  Then we’ll stay for a few days with friends outside New York before treating ourselves to a couple of days at Niagara Falls to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary.  We don’t usually go on exotic holidays so the fact that the trip coincides is a wonderful coincidence (if you want to call it that).  We’ll fly from Niagara to north Carolina where I’ll take part in Gathering of Artisans, including me leading a knitting workshop.

As well as planning for the study leave I am trying to work out how to reduce our carbon footprint to go some way to making up for all those airmiles.

Looking forward to writing more on all sorts of subjects.  I hope at least a few folk will enjoy reading. Feedback welcomed and encouraged!
