|Rosa 'Sweet Juliet' 16 September 2022|
Somewhere in that digital cloud in the sky there must be one that has rock videos, old photographs of movie stars from the 40s, funny puns, a self-portrait attributed to van Gogh, or strange facts of people that are in the news.
Folks (an award-winning word that is as popular as the world moves forward) in social media, post these (a word that has lost its intrinsic meaning since stamps were done away with) without much of a comment that might just say, “I love the Lennon tune.” There will be no accompanying explanation as to the why.
My grandmother would have said to me, “Saludando con sombrero ajeno,” or, “Saying hello with someone else’s hat.”
These postings to me have no content because there is so little of the personal in them.
My thinning Vancouver Sun lacks lots of content but I do read the comics and the opinion section ( not on Mondays as they skip opinion on that day).
My blog may be ill-written or repetitive, such as this one in which I have a plant scan ("Not another!") of the English Rose, Rosa ‘Sweet Juliet’. I am certainly repetitive. I wrote about it here just a few days ago.
The few who might be following these might think, “When is winter going to come so he will stop these scanographs and show us some of his girlie pictures. Those are far more interesting.”
But I must point out that at the very least this blog has content, lovely content (if repetitive) and some personal opinion (perhaps even a rant of which I do not like to make with frequency).
I know, for what must be a fact, that there are folks out there thinking at night what picture or Youtube video they are going to post the second the find out that Keith Richards has died.
Luckily for me that happening before this 80 year-old-man reaches his personal oblivion, is unlikely.
