After yesterday’s grey and very misty morning, today’s early trip couldn’t have been much different. A clear and very bright sunny morning. It was a delightful walk, made even more so by seeing the Conmar Gulf outbound. Admittedly not a large ship at 8,000 tons on the way to Zeebrugge.
And so begins post No. 300 in this series of 366 which started in last year, a leap year hence the 366 rather than the 365. I can remember when I started this thinking I have no idea how long I am going to keep this up for, I don’t know if I thought I wouldn’t be able to do it. I may still not finish, but every day brings me closer, and it is now more likely that I will – hopefully.
I have had times when it has been a bit of a struggle. Typically writers block. The thing to do about that was to write about the block. It may have resulted waffle which I was able to do, because I am not dedicated to a specific topic, I can write about what I want. Then, there are the topics I need to stay away from; freedom of speech, politics and religion. It is not the purpose of this blog to stir controversy. I won’t do that.
The purpose of this blog is to satisfy my urge to write. If anything were to purge the urge, it would have been this exercise. I think it has reinforced it. I still want to write, but I want a focus. Locality may provide the framework. I need to look at previous posts where I mention locality, and perhaps do a bit more detailed article as to what it is all about.
