This blog has now reached its 7th Anniversary. Thanks to Facebook, a regular newspaper column, and a much happier home life, I do not use this blog as I did in the early years as my primary creative and social outlet. Still, I am pleased by the connections it continues to make for me and for others, and from time to time find new reason to post things here. The long form post, in the end, still has a place in the blogosphere despire all the Tweets and Likes that predominate elsewhere. And like any archive, it still requires a curator.
