WE HAVE TO park this blog more often, by seeking out dead zones where internet access is so difficult to maintain that we simply walk, talk and enjoy the surroundings. Like Kitty at left, discovering the inviting couches of the Tate Modern. I returned to work feeling recharged, even though we had been disconnected for no more than 26 hours. Not only did I conclude that short time away cleared my mind, I also noted that visitors to both this blog and its photo albums jumped more than 10% on the day. Although I doubt that spike is related to my inactivity, the event proved something I knew long before. If you can tell a story in words or pictures, if you can offer advice in an easy-to-grasp manner and if you permit people to leave behind unmoderated comments, they will stop and graze. And Kitty--this is for you: thanks a million for sharing the updates you find of your youngest sister. We're telling her that you're taking care of her already.
