Getting all bookish
The time has come to not only blog about our way of life but also to write a book about it. I’ve come up with the working title: Little Owl Gully – Four Seasons in the Valley.
‘Working’, if there’s going to be more to it than just a title, will require some juggling. There’s still got to be time to do some actual homesteading – not just writing about it! I’ve invoked Gandhi in the past when I’ve felt compromise necessary:
The beauty of compromise consists in a deed’s being done…. It is far from perfect, but at least it is something done. In order that it may be done, it must limit itself to time, place and people, and compromise with what is there.
See my to baling-twine post.
“In order that it may be done” I need to use some of the time I spend blogging on writing a book. To that end, I’ve decided on a 50/50 split.
For example, on Monday week I’ll publish a blog post about the cattle yards I built and the variety of ways in which we put them to use. And I’ll sign off something like this: That’s all on modern-day homesteading at Little Owl Gully for now. My next blog post will be published in two weeks’ time on Monday, 15th May. Thanks for your company. Bye.
For those of you who subscribe, I’ll send an email reminder with a one click, fast, secure link to the latest blog post topic as usual – the only difference will be that I’ll send it to you fortnightly rather than weekly.
