Short & Sweet

23 Sep

I’m back, and I’ve got a little something up my sleeve.

Shorter, sweeter, lighters posts, and more of them.  I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about why I was having trouble keeping the Granny Cart fresh, and it came down to one thing: length.  The posts were too long, too ponderous.  I felt heavy thinking about them and trying to write them.  I felt constrained by their length and the necessity of keeping photos on a theme.  So I’ve chopped that up completely and given the site a new spin.

And so you’ll find a little post about peppers, and one about a fuzzy new friend, there’s a brief little vignette from a funny little restaurant, a view of the city from a friend’s rooftop and how scars heal in the garden. There’s also a jig of a recipe for eating a novel part of the Brussels sprout and photos from a paddle I took in my new kayak where I spied on an Osprey.

I hope you like the new feel.  It’s early goings for me, but so far, I’m liking it a whole lot.  Please let me know what you think.

    I like it a lot! I was pretty confused when I saw 8 new posts, all at once, all posted at the same time, but the idea is a good one. And you may be assured: the length-shortening measures do nothing to reduce the impish, playful quality of the prose and the captivating beauty of the photos and their ability to pull you in to reflect on them… I’m just happy I’ll get to see more, more often! Thank you for your works of love and art!
