Since the connections are so slow here and I’ve been posting blogs of words without any photo uploads, I’ve started to feel differently about photos in my posts. I was looking back at posts from California, and maybe it sounds harsh, but I feel I was masking the lack of stuff I had to say by adding nice pictures, web site links, posting You Tube videos. The blog was prettier back then, but I feel that it has substance now, and maybe photos are the sacrificial pixel. I prefer the Congo you imagine than bogging down your thoughts with reality. Reality is so over-rated.
