Why a second blog? I already have a narrative essay style general blog, Sudden Alarm of Donkeys but this is about travelling through the world in the real-time space continuum. There are a lot of travel blogs cluttering up the inter-weebs these days so I don’t know what will make this one different to anyone except myself, friends and family members. Honestly, do I need to justify it beyond that?
Not really. And keep in mind I always welcome new friends.
The blog name, for those of you that didn’t notice immediately, comes from one of my favorite Shakespearean speeches:
Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head;
And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in every thing.
