a post about nothing…

Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
Jules Renard

Well, where to start? It’s now been more than a month since I last posted an entry here. There isn’t any good reason for writing nothing over this period – I was just being lazy really. Instead of writing something, I was either watching telly or reading books (some related some unrelated to my work), and sleeping early and sleeping longer hours! I haven’t even been leaving comments on the blogs that I visit and read regularly (SORRY), even writing a few lines of comments has been difficult over these four and a half weeks. Anyway, I wouldn’t like to go into the details of my daily routine (well, most days are routine less; I do things when and as I like!). Randomness seems to be my thing…

This post is sort of clarification for my absence from the blogosphere for these four and half weeks. Regular visitors might also have noticed that I hadn’t updated my photoblog until two weeks ago. I actually have a very, well, good reason for it. I decided to upgrade my equipment – ordered a new digital camera (spent quite a bit actually) and I had been waiting for it to be delivered. And I just couldn’t get myself to go out and take snaps from my old camera while I was waiting for the brand new camera to arrive. Now that the camera has arrived (and I have already posted 3-4 snaps taken with it), hopefully, I can get myself to take more photographs more often so that I can at least post a couple of pictures each week. Let’s see… Also, I plan to be a bit more serious with my photography (I guess I have to after spending a fortune on my new camera!)

Another piece of good news is that I just managed to secure funding to attend a conference in Delhi in December. Since I will be so close to KTM, I plan to come over for a week or so to visit family and friends. May be I could meet some of the KTM-bloggers while I’m there as well!!? And may be have a mini-workshop of sorts on blogging??! I am really looking forward to this trip now…

Talking of blogging, I recently received a very nice and long comment on one of my old entries here from a friend. Receiving comments like that (although after nearly two months from the original post! No pun intended Darren) does seem to spur me into writing new entries. And judging by the lack of enthusiasm lately on posting any new entries, such comments might be the tonic that I need, although the tonic seem to be a slow acting one. For that comment was left on 21st September, nearly three weeks ago!!! Oh well, at least I am babbling away here, trying to create an entry out of nothing. For my “random jottings…” I think 500 words as the minimum word requirement for an entry, and the word count just crossed that mark. So, I stop here… More next time…may be a bit more thought-out entry, hopefully!
