Hello world! – Beginnings

Proteas
Proteas, the flowers of changing form.

Zen mind, beginner’s mind is apparently a desired state for the eternal student. Encounter moments and activity as though for the first time. In this way you will let it teach you.

It is telling that as I twiddle with my first self-administered blog, it’s the look of it that first distracts me.  Here I am trying to figure out how to make this blog look like brand Beaded Quill, when perhaps my time would be better invested writing valuable content (I have read that the longevity of a blog relies on the quality of its content.) or polishing what it might be that brand Beaded Quill is about.

Apparently Alain de Botton formally began writing a new book at c. 3pm today. (Now, at this point I would insert the Twitter link, only I have still to learn how to do so.) It seems, then, that today is a good day for beginnings. Hello world! I present here the blog for Beaded Quill, where we begin with concerns about appearance rather than content.
