After unplugging from the internet for the past year, I’ve decided to keep riding that train. Anyone new to this site might want to check out my Guide to Beekeeping that collects pretty much the best of what I’ve posted anyway. Photos for many of my older posts were deleted during a technical glitch a while back and it could be some time before I have the chance to fix them. I will, however, continue to upload photos and video clips on Twitter, but that’s about it for now. Here are the details…
I got bonked on the head near the end of 2016. I’m just now beginning to feel like a normal human again, capable of doing normal human things. I can take my dog for a walk. I can watch TV. I can eat a peanut butter and jam sandwich whenever I feel like it. Things are looking up. Things are looking so up, in fact, that I don’t want to mess with a good thing.
Ask anyone who’s had a serious concussion injury: Even when things are looking good, or especially when things are looking good, you have to take it slow. It’s not much fun being forced to take it slow, month after month after month, but then you realise it’s not such a bad place to be. Walking, not running, listening, not talking, if you pick up my existential drift.
After a year of taking it slow and unplugging myself from all things that have a plug, you’d think I’d be ready to get on with things. But low profile mode is working so well for me, I’m going to stick with it a while longer. That means no blog posts any time soon, no beekeeping videos, not much of anything online except for my Twitter account. I won’t be joining any beekeeping groups or participating in any kind of workshops either. I do appreciate the conversations on the Backyard Farming & Homesteading NL Facebook page, but otherwise, I’m out. Not out for good, but until further notice.
Thank you to everyone who helped me out over the past year. I’ll see you later.
