Blogging From the Tundra

I haven't posted in a very long time, and my most recent posts are actually mostly from the 1 year in the last 7 or 8 that I wasn't living on the tundra.  I'm still here.  The tundra still amazes me with its beauty.  I don't have many winter shots - but maybe that will be my job as we prepare to spend our 2nd Christmas on the tundra.

Life has been full of good changes and I've simply gotten busy (became a mom) and to some extent forgotten that I have a blog.  My blog is actually over 10 years old - and I guess to a certain extent Facebook has replaced blogging - but Facebook doesn't really call me to write anything eloquent - just tell people that I'm doing daily things that everyone does day like waking up and appreciating the smell of coffee.  Blogging lends itself more to thoughtful, edited posts with a purpose - even if the purpose is only to express mortification that its been nearly 2 years since I last posted anything.

I've pulled a stack of tundra pictures from this fall that hopefully I'll post over the next little while - and then add to them a stash of winter tundra pictures.  We'll see how it goes.... but the world should know the beauty of the tundra and I'm not quite ready to let this project die after 10 years.  I just might have to rethink how I use it.

Aloha, Jen! May your blogging never die. I am not on Livejournal much anymore, but I am trying to keep the spirit alive on another blog.

Hey! I'm not sure if this blog is still live or if you're even still in the north...I was just flipping through old posts on my blog and saw a comment you shared, so I thought I'd flip over. So much of this post rings true for me as well! Hiatus from writing, becoming a mom in the Arctic; FaceBook taking over. Anyway, hope you're doing well!

Thanks Paul and Tara. As I write this note I'm thinking about my return to the north in a few months. I now have 2 kids and even less time, but I know they won't be so little forever and I'm glad my blog still exists, even quietly.
