This is Not a BlogWhen I came back to this work, many years later, a friend remarked, "you had a blog before there were blogs." While I'm flattered, I think he was wrong. Yes this is a set of writings, contributed to on a regular basis. But where blogs tend to be diaries and reactions to the here and now, this is one work; a set of articles with a longer time focus and an overarching direction. Maybe they'll even connect into a grand unified hypertextual whole, or maybe they'll just end up a maze of twisty little passages all alike. So, this time, I'm deliberately structuring the site somewhat differently. Primitive, really. Just words and a picture now and then. Essays with links embedded. Follow the links; maybe I'll keep them the same from day to day, maybe I won't. I do know that any organization you find will honor the multidimensional digressive thicket that is both the way my mind works and the presentation most appropriate to my subject(s).
