There Is No Cat

Hollering into the void since 2002

Two years

Two years ago today, I unveiled There Is No Cat. One year ago today, I wrote up a list of what I considered my best posts in that first year. I was originally thinking I didn't write anything worth reading this past year, but looking through the archives, there are a few things that might be worth revisiting.

The good posts got few and far between as the year progressed. I haven't posted as often, and I haven't posted as well. Life tends to get in the way; I got married and bought a house in the past year. I got a new job, same as the old job. We had major construction done on the house. I got a new camera and started shooting a lot of pictures, perhaps focusing on that more than on writing.

Some times I think I'm burning out on the web after eleven years. So if the gaps get wider in the coming months, I'm just recharging my batteries.

Note: I’m tired of clearing the spam from my comments, so comments are no longer accepted.

hey ralph, i know how that is... i too have concentrated more on photos recently rather than writing. it is hard to find time to do both. i should be very sad, though, if you were to give up blogging altogether... here's hoping you stick around with your words and your pictures :)

Yeah, I hear you about burnout. Don't worry about the rate of your posts. We're getting good value for our money. :-)

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
