We found a lovely post that helped us reflect on life beyond the digital. Joel Dueck tells us about this item of furniture,
The secretary, a compartmentalized working-space, may be thought of as the RSS reader of the past.

The linked post, is really only a paragraph but the idea in it is wonderful.Â
Today, I wrote a post on my 1999.io blog, read my RSS reader, tweeteted, answered tweets, found some lovely stuff. I worked on a website and went back an forward many times on email.

3. Return to the location and take detail photos of things you noticed while looking at the original
We are recycling this one for the weekend for our friend @johnjohnston who could not do it on a week day!

I went for a walk in the park yesterday morning and took a few shots. None of them looked promsing, but I went over this one carefully:
I’ve hi-lighted and zoomed to the bit I though worth revisiting. Turned out I did not get back to the park yesterday. Today We went a little further afield for a walk and picnic.
I spent a fair bit of time looking at trees and bark. Neither of these are particularly interesting photos but the exercise itself was.Â
If I had gone back to the park I may have tried for the kerb stones rather than the trees, but I can save that for another day.
