More than a while; it’s been an age.
Like this bus, Quirkworthy has been sitting quietly on its own for a long time. This wasn’t so much a plan on my part as a lack of one, and it’s taken me a very long time to come up with a way forward that felt both robust and, well, right. Something that I can get enthused about once more. Something I hope you’ll be excited about too.
I’ve done a great deal of pondering about what I want to do with Quirkworthy over the last couple of years, and have come to some definite conclusions about what should and should not be included. My goal is something that I think is both more ambitious and more exciting than Quirkworthy was before, with what I consider the best bits intact, plus a slew of new cool stuff on top. This includes my new second favourite German word.
It’s going to take some time to get everything into place, and it won’t happen all at once, so please excuse the mess while I work. We can talk while the place gets fixed up.
This week I’ll be posting a series of articles about what I intend to do with Quirkworthy, and why. Seems like the sensible place to start. Please feel free to comment.
For the moment, consider this place a bit of a building site, or maybe an old and rusting shell of a bus. It’s like we just walked back through the door, and there’s a lot of rubbish to clear out and bits to fix up. The windows are broken and the dust has blown in. Some kids were messing with a ouija board in the corner, so we’ll need to check for ghosts too. The whole place is plastered with posters that advertise tribute bands, travelling circuses, and haemorrhoid cream. They can all go in the bin.
It’s time to blow away the cobwebs from this rickety old jalopy. It’s time for a fresh start.
