One of my goals in the past year was to visit Europe. A friend and I made plans to fly to Ireland as well as Spain. Along with great photos and 10 pounds (damn that Spanish wine and ham!), we brought back the email address of some Welsh dude.
Fast-forward about six months and I found myself with another friend from across the globe. And this one happened to be inspired by my blog — so inspired that he started his own.
(I’m still very flattered by this.)
There have been times when I’ve wanted to post something on my blog, but it really didn’t suit the theme. I know it’s hard to believe, but there are times when the pessimist comes out of the basement and I just want to rant. Or sound off on politics. Or let the inner conspiracy theorist have the reins. And Iain had similar feelings about his blog.
I’ve been trying to find someone to co-write on a blog with me for quite some time. But not everyone fancies themselves writers, and a lot of people just don’t feel the need to put it “out there.” So after watching my friend blog like a maniac for the past few months, I decided to ask him. And he was soooo down! Sweet!
So check out our new blog Collaborations of Abstraction. It’s full of all sorts of interesting discoveries and thoughts from all over the world. At least interesting to us. Comments are encouraged. Suggestions are welcome.
We’ll both continue our individual blogs. So don’t worry. My ridiculous optimism will continue. How could it not? There are so many beautiful things to consider and appreciate!
