This blog was one year old yesterday. I have been uploading images and adding posts on a regular basis throughout the year but I wonder sometimes – if I could do it differently? I’m sure my regular visitors have ideas about that 🙂 and I’d love to hear suggestions about how I might improve this blog. It’s always nice to get your comments… I was thinking that I might change the dark face on my banner for the second year, but it would still have to blend in with the black background. The reason for the black background, by the way, is that it uses less energy, or so I’ve read somewhere. I read that if Google changed their background to black, it would save zillions across the world.
Something else that I read recently: “Passive to Active Citizenship, a Role for the Arts”, by Declan MacGonigle of NCAD. In this paper he challenges the Arts to be ‘a provider of vitamins, not painkillers in this anxious world’. He wrote that art should try to bring healing, should strive to bring new life… So maybe I’ll change that dark face up there to something more cheerful? Regular readers might have noticed that I changed the banner a few times recently – I tried various other images – but I haven’t come up with a good replacement yet. Any suggestions ?
