Since I’ve decided to write a book on Deep Literacy and I find it difficult to press on with writing since the subject area is so potentially large and I have to find some shape to present it in, I’ve decided to start blogging. Every day. Much will be chatty, some to the point and other will be actual sections of the book. Or such is the hope anyway.
I hope this will be less intimidating and a good way to get into the rhythm of writing every day. I wrote this on Sunday the 25th of May, before dinner with Emily’s parents, at the new wonderful Japanese restaurant in Putney. It was my kickoff post but I decided to break it up into several posts, so that I can tag them as Author, Liquid, Photography and so on, separately, hopefully making this slightly easier to read in the future…
But first, the general update.
Today is Sunday, the day after my dad’s birthday, where him and Emily and I went to the British Museum for the Vikings exhibition, which was a real treat for all of us. Mum is suffering from a bad back so she didn’t join us and we had thali delivery from Masla Zone which was fun and enjoyed by all. Much sleeping this weekend. Much love and harmony. So now I’m sitting writing this at the living room table, on my Apple 2013 MacBook air, listening to Cedar Walton on my B&O H6 Headphones, drinking cappuccino from my modern Picardy glass, made from my Starbucks Verismo espresso machine and the milk frother plus ice cold filtered water from the large recycled (looking) Starbucks glass I bought with Kevin in California. Emily is on the terrace, pottering about, wearing something green out of a 70’s wonder show, still looking elegant and bang up to date. This is a time I want to remember. iPad Air on the table, I’m wondering about maybe making an ePub reader, but it couldn’t open protected ePub’s which is a serious limitation, both to a project for me and for the evolution of reading in general. Moe’s iPhone 5 cover is on the far side of the table, the one with the built in USB stick. Genius. And strong visual and tactile design.
And LiSA tells me “it’s 5pm”. LiSA is running crash free again, after many years on and off. She is getting old though, having been introduced in 20o1 or so, but she is still vibrantly useful.
