I suppose this was long overdue. The long awaited trip to New Zealand finally came to fruition, and here’s the highlights. We visited the majority of the North Island and had the time of our lives. Pseudo-Cyclone Cook couldn’t keep us down. We became the Hobbits of which we’d dreamed.
Starting over is hard, though, much easier when you barely progressed in the first place.
I liked my site, I really did. It was a marvelous achievement when I’d finally built it–the slider, the featured posts, the ever changing category headers. It was everything I’d hoped to create, but . . . part of me knew it was too much, too grand. My mind carries with it a certain scale that I always attempt to create, no matter the challenge. So, there it sat, for more than a couple years, unfinished and ugly. It had turned in the Winchester Mystery House of websites with many doors and avenues even I didn’t know where they lead.
