# Rao's post rang true to me: engineer my next process. It echoes my desire to do something a bit different with my writing, to work in a different way and see what comes of it.

The garden may seem like an all consuming vanity project (it very likely is) undertaken in lieu of actual writing but it is also a means to an end, a creative endeavour in its own right.

On this day last year Blogging for now was probably what kick-started my thoughts moving to a more ephemeral blog: writing for now, today, as though that's all that matters.

In that context the garden seems a contradiction, maybe it is, but I am that contradiction - we all are. I reserve the right to change my mind, to disagree with past me just as future me will turn his nose up at the present. I need to look for different ways of working/doing/thinking, to not get trapped in habit.

I need to find purpose and establish proper goals and, hopefully, having everything in one place will help.

    Thanks. I should have looked. That’s one of the downsides of the latest-first, top down presentation of social media, of course.
