A Little Less Conversation...

In Bulgaria I got annoyed by some of our team taking endless digital pictures of stuff happening. I even started to write an angry little song about their paperazzi habits (thankfully I lost the lyrics)... It annoyed me that their experience on mission was being largely lived through the camera lense rather than just experiencing the moments first hand.

Then this morning I read this blog post by Joshua Harris and realised its quite possible that too much of my life is mediated through this blog... In all honesty it doesn't take up that much of my time, but it does take sometime.

So, having utterly failed in my intention to disappear for a month earlier this summer I'm now going to try and do that again. Mostly enforced by work commitments over the next couple of weeks. That doesn't mean no posts, but it probably means much less blogging at least for a while... time for much more living.

  1. Dave,

    I can certainly relate to that, as I remember when I first got a camera taking pictures of everything. It's highly stupid to take pictures just to remind you of what you missed.

    On a more light-hearted note, have a look at this - I don't think it applies to you really, but it is pretty funny...
