It’s all in the details…
but D is also for…..
DJ is the best nephew a person could have! All round good guy, puffle and poodle wrangler and there’s some fabulous interior design happening in his igloo at Club Penguin and it got me thinking…
…I think we need a Club Kitchen along the same lines. Not Second Life, too creepy, but a kitchen to fill with the latest gadgets, cupboards to stock, ovens to watch, teaparties, bun rolling competitions. Everyone could come, young and old, children and parents, dogs and cats, no health and safety, no people getting mad because a baby is crying. You could turn up as a celebrity chef if you felt the need. Though I can’t imagine one I’d like to be, apart from Keith Floyd or maybe the Galloping Gourmet.
I’d like to visit the Old Blog Library room round the corner from Club Kitchen where old bread blogs rise and fall, propped up by Kilner jars frothing over with levain, where the distilled wisdom of observation and imagery of a thousand garden bloggers is covered in a fine layer of pale green seedlings, jostling with the constantly restless travel blogs, the fluttering silks of the fashion blogs and the hum of the working science blogs. And maybe there’s a Gorilla in there too, I’m straying into Terry Pratchett territory here though and will stop.
We repeat ourselves over and over, endlessly looking for the right words, a way to express something that matters, that makes sense of the world we inhabit, the inner space and the outer world melting into each other. It’s all in the details for Darthjelly in his igloo, and me in my library. I love the details!
Chiot’s Run lovely blog has organized the Alphabet in August.
Here’s a couple more to visit:
Misk Cooks – my poetic friend and Danish translator
and Emily, Sincerely who grows some amazing things in her garden to an English eye at least. I’m going back there soon too.
Edit: Curious how to make a Wordle?
