A bit hungover this morning, so I decided to do a bit of housekeeping on ye old blog to see if there was any activity happening in here. As expected, there wasn’t since for the past year or so I’ve been using this as a repository of Instagram photos. Friends know to comment on FB or Instagram if they want to reach me. So imagine my surprise — shock, might be a better word! — when I realized that this blog is already four years and a month old!! Holy…!!!
So I haven’t really paid too much attention to this blog for ages, despite numerous attempts to really seriously start blogging. What can I say, Facebook and Instagram are even more of a lazy person’s way of “recording” (sorta) the minutae of one’s life, which was what a friend once said of Tumblr. So this blog has been gathering dust, so to speak — like a beloved book left on the desk. In plain sight, but because it’s so familiar, one forgets it’s there.
Hence this post. I recently wrote an editor’s note to the effect that we need to change or we die. It’s the one defining characteristic of humanity — our infinite capacity for change. (OK, I concede that we’re also the only species that can go on a calculated rampage and destruction hellbent on destroying our kind, but that’s another story. Positive thoughts, people!)… So I decided to give the blog a facelift, which you see right now. Can’t promise I will end up posting more often — life and duty have a way of just messing up priorities — but at least it’s a new look. So enjoy, my legions of followers (haha!)
