I’ve been having a bit of a blog designing session – and it’s all left me feeling exhausted. It began yesterday with Daur1 designing a blog logo/ banner and has ended with me trying on and off various themes to find one that I feel portrays me! For a designer of buildings, I’ve found it difficult to get my head round why certain themes don’t do certain things and although there’s probably some add-on/ plug-in that can be done, I’m not into the technological aspects that badly. I simply want it to be attractive, easy to read and navigate, and reflect a part of me. What do you think?
I return to work tomorrow after two weeks on leave so that is probably adding to the exhausted and stressed feelings. Although, it is all change in a few weeks; the assistants will go back to university and we will have at least one new one. And a couple of the projects were at feasibility and concept design stage so it will be good to work a little more conceptually while others are still on holiday. Despite my moans about work, I do enjoy being an architect!
I’ve had quite a few thoughts about what I want to write about – there’s clearly the whole death of a lion issue versus death of a negro; I’ve been doing family history and have been thinking on how I bear the signs of yesteryear; a new shopping centre has received planning permission and it looks like another ship (I need to do a blog on how many buildings in our town look like ships).
I think I’ve shared this scripture before but it does seem very appropriate for all the eclectic thoughts going round my mind, from Mosiah chapter 4, verse 27, King Benjamin’s words:
And see that all these things are done in wisdom and order; for it is not requisite that a man should run faster than he has strength. And again, it is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize; therefore, all things must be done in order.
