I swore i would never do one of these bloggy-things.
It seemed to me that, circa 2002, they were terribly self-indulgent: “today I went to the grocery store” / “tonight i’m going to a fabulous party and you’re not invited.” But in the past few years I’ve seen enough good examples that I’m willing to try my hand.
So this blog is for sharing: music, photos, art, fashion, quotations… anything that makes life beautiful. and it’s to encourage me to be creative with painting, writing, cross-stitch, what have you. But I refuse to make goals and deadlines for myself… whatever is accomplished is a good thing.
Finally this blog is for preserving memory because our memories, as Saul Bellow says, “keep the wolf of insignificance from the door.”

This post was first published in January 2010. Since then, I have moved this blog from Blogger to WordPress, losing an archive of images and the name “The Wolf of Insignificance” in the process. I’ve also since updated my WordPress template and lost some formatting. So, in the interest in full disclosure, this post and all subsequent ones have been revised, creating new images and capitalizing what was previously all lowercase text.
