I will preface this post with a disclaimer so I don't piss off any of my blog friends. I love you all and your blogs, you know that. I do not say any of this in a mean spirited way, It is just an observation and my very own opinion, it is not meant to cause mental anguish or harm to you! I do not love your Facebook goings on. I tried reading a few last week. I have noticed that some of my favorite blogs are falling by the wayside, very little time and care being paid to them and I miss them. So I cruised over to the Facebook substitutes of a few blogs that I miss. I learned someone found some boxes, someone moved a slab roller, someone ate an apple, someone tied their shoe, someone farted.... not really, but it was mostly like that to me. Yawn.... people.....
I have started roaming outside of potters land for blog material because the potters are A. working very hard and do not have the time to blog, I'm assuming and B. they have succumb to the simple minded quickies of Facebook and Twitter. Gone are many of the thought provoking and often stimulating conversation making blogs of a few years ago. I miss them. I have found, though, that artists in other mediums are writing beautiful and inspirational blogs and I am so happy they take the time to put some interesting thoughts out there for people like me that enjoy reading what other artists are going through so I don't feel so alone with my angst.
Now, here is another interesting observation and happening. Tig, at Future Primitive blog, a blog I used to love to read, also a twitter/facebook victim, recently returned to the blog world and yesterday's post was WONDERFUL! Tig wrote about juicing and her photos and recipes were so enticing, I went out and bought a juicer today, yes I did! We have had a gift card floating around since Christmas for Target, and we hardly ever see anything there we want, but they had a juicer on sale so I got one. Went to the Farmer's market in Carrboro, then the grocery, came home and juiced my brains out!!!! WTF, why have I not thought about this before now? I knew about juicing, Jack Lelane and all that, but, man, this is the shit! I juiced apple, peach, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and added some rice syrup for sweetness, YUM YUM!!!! I made a pitcher and we sipped away the afternoon, filling our souls with vitamins and goodness.
The pulp is an interesting thing, I know not what to do with it, the dog wouldn't touch it, so it went to compost land. This is going to be an adventure, to see what concoctions I can make that we can actually drink and enjoy. What fun! Now, if Tig had just kept this in twitterville or spaceland, I would have never known, and I might be less healthy one day, get a disease and die. But! Because she came back to her blog, I will be thin, beautiful and healthy very soon:) She promised haha!
Too bad, Facebook and Twitter stole so many bloggers, I really miss the time I spent with family photos and recipes and catching up with everyone's woes and joys and hard work. I guess that might be going on over in spaceland, but, alas, it goes on with out me :( Thanks to all of you that continue to carry the torch, I love reading what you write about
