This is the Columbian Star Reefer going out this morning. If you embiggen (as Homer would say) the picture it will be just ever so slightly blurred. Sorry about that, slow shutter speed.
Sometimes a pressure builds up. I have four magazines delivered a month, they generally come once a week, it can take me three or four days to read each one. That’s leaving roughly three days per week to read other things like books. I’m now beginning to feel a bit frustrated that I’m not reading books.
The follow on to that is do I stop reading the magazines? The thing is, I vowed that when I took out the subscription for the magazines I would read them from cover to cover. Of course, there is the occasional article that I might miss, mainly because it breaches my boredom barrier. I’ve stuck to that for at least the last two years. Is it time to slack off?
I have a problem with slacking off. I’m going to sign up again next year to do walk1000. I enjoy reading the articles, and the pictures. Then there is black and white photography, I really enjoy reading those articles, I love a good B&W picture, I have an ambition to have a picture published in the magazine. Not impossible if I take the right picture.
I don’t think I am going to give up either of those. RadCom comes as part of my RSGB membership, I must admit I don’t read that cover to cover, and I am not going to give up membership, so that magazine comes as default. The same really applies to the RTCS Observer Magazine. So, it looks like my four weeks of magazines is really nearer two, I just need to manage my time a bit better. I was please to be able to have this analysis. All is well.
