Carter’s Garden Blog


My Blog, My Public Journal…

Good morning! Well, it’s official… I’m a Blogger geek! At least that’s what my wife and son say 😊 This is my 3rd year doing a daily Blog & I don’t really see an end in sight.

Most Journals are private, this one is public. Published daily…

Many people write a daily journal or diary to get their thoughts recorded. I guess that’s what my Blog is in a way. It’s part life experience, part education & hopefully partly entertainment for others… In any case, it has become a passion & a daily activity that drives me to type & photograph & record things in my daily life. I’m not in any way comparing myself to one of my favorite writers, Thoreau, but I love and identify with this quote of his 👇🏻

“My Journal is that of me which else would spill over and run to waste, gleanings from the field which in action I reap. I must not live for it, but in it for the gods. They are my correspondent, to whom daily I send off this sheet postpaid. I am clerk in their counting-room, and at evening transfer the account from my day-book to ledger. It is as a leaf which hangs over my head in the path. I bend the twig and write my prayers on it; then letting it go, the bough springs up and shows the scrawl to heaven. As if it were not kept shut in my desk, but were as public a leaf as any in nature. It is papyrus by the riverside; it is vellum in the pastures; it is parchment on the hills. I find it everywhere as free as the leaves which troop along the lanes in autumn. The crow, the goose, the eagle carry my quill, and the wind blows the leaves as far as I go. Or, if my imagination does not soar, but gropes in slime and mud, then I write with a reed. “
~ Henry David Thoreau

Have a great Tuesday!

 

PS: I’m off to speak for a Garden Club ❤️ Wish me luck!

A little while back I did a Blog on Social Networking. It was a very popular Blog… And why not! So many more people are joining the digital age! Even Grandparents are HUGE on Facebook & Pinterest & Instagram!
