On Gradual Changes

If you happen to be one of the very small number of people who have looked at my blog before, you will see that I’m edging into a different look for the blog. Which explains the new header photo. When I signed on today (for the first time in months) the kindly folks at WordPress suggested that I might want to update my Theme. so I looked at a bunch of themes. WordPress even has this cool bit of tech where you can see how the content already on your blog would look in another theme. I tried out a number of themes and concluded that I’m just not ready for so much change at once. However, there was still the obvious fact that the photo on my heading was looking dated.

I solved that problem by uploading a newer photo — the first cautious step in the revamping of my blog. Not to mention, bringing the blog back to life with actual reasonably frequent entries. As I’m having to relearn what I knew about WordPress and more, I thought that a complete design overhaul would be just too much.

The subject of my photo, though, is not the least bit cautious. The picture is a panorama shot I took at the spectacular Bascilica de la Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. If you want to see more shots, take a visita virtual, or buy tickets to visit, check out the basica’s web site at http://www.sagradafamilia.cat. I just looked at it when I was checking to see that I’d spelled the name correctly. And I think it’s cool that the end of the domain name is “cat” as in Catalonia.

The basilica was designed by Antoni Gaudi whose unique, adventurous artistic and architectural vision can be seen all over Barcelona. When I was there last summer, I also visited a house he’d designed, and became extremely envious of the family who had lived there. I’ll try to post some of my pictures of the house soon, so you can become envious too.
