Lockdown has been challenging, It is time to get back on course.
|JP Hackett||Jun 28|
Hello friends, I hope this letter finds you fit and well?
As you might have gathered, my plans for producing a newsletter filled with film and television reviews has gone awry. I apologise. I allowed myself to become distracted by the endless twenty-four-hour news cycle and by social media. Instead of being out in the world finding things to photograph and write about, I have been holed-up in my house, working on the garden, refurbishing the greenhouse and trying to keep my family from going insane with boredom. I even managed to build and publish a new website for my wife’s cake baking business, Pumpkin Cakes.
Over the last few days, I have been thinking about this newsletter and how I will take it forward. I will use Full Gas Foto as the outlet for my photographic projects, hackett.life for daily posts, and this newsletter for longer pieces of work, such as travelogues and essays. The MotoYeti blog is still a work in progress, but I hope to be writing race reports and motorcycle related news on the site soon.
I have many opinions about current news and events, but I am trying hard to move away from reading and writing about those. Suffice to say; turmoil makes headlines. So, I can’t make any promises about a publishing schedule, but I will do my best to send out something of interest regularly very soon.
Until then, stay safe and keep your chin up!
