That term has yet to make it into Wikipedia or the Urban Dictionary but if you google it, you get tons of results. I’m not blogcating but it seems as though the authors of a lot of the blogs I read regularly are currently doing so–because of burnout, health issues, personal reasons, etc.–and I know my blog stats have been way down the past few days. How about yours?
The only reason I haven’t blogged as often lately is lack of photos due to extreme humidity (for AZ) and laziness about venturing out into it. I have plenty of places I want to go, I just can’t bring myself to do it. So here are some photos taken last night during a brief jaunt around central Phoenix, with no tripod.
This totally retro sign looks like it’s from the ’50s. I know it was here in the ’70s but I can’t find any info about it online. Apparently it made the Wall Street Journal in January in an article about GM’s problems.
At the Light Rail station at Central and Camelback,
both ways for the trains, but look at what you will also see–Phoenix’s own Stargate:
It’s actually called A New Path by Ilan Averbuch, another New York artist trying to capture the spirit of the desert, but I would assume most people would think Stargate when they see it. The matchsticks are supposed to be people (??).
I crawled through it and found myself in downtown Phoenix on the other side, close to our neighborhood Starbucks.
I see that Starbucks is now selling crafts from African artisans and more fair trade coffee so that is a good thing.
I hope to be daytripping at least one day this coming week so that I have some more material for future blogs and when I do go on vacation in August I plan to blog on location so I will not be on blogcation.
Come back, bloggers, we miss you in the blogosphere.
