five years ago on the 24th of december i began this blog. since then i’ve written/photographed/drawn 844 (now 845) posts which comes out to about one every other day.
initially, i thought the blog would be about art and collecting and in some ways that has been true throughout its life. i’ve taken some sharp corners in this time; managing to write a fairly complete memoir of my first 30 years along the way as well as discussions about more topical subjects, the nature of friendship, life in a digital world, and yes, collecting and art, frankly whatever struck my fancy (i’m still a fan of the random “first paragraph” posts.)
over the past week since the last post i’ve given some thought to the energy required to maintain this blog and have discovered that i’ve run dry. so a thank you is in order to those of you who’ve followed along, i appreciate your comments and visits and views. i’m not sure it’s the absolute end, but i do know it’s time to slow down; i’ve got a manuscript to wrangle into shape and lots of other things to do…like gardening and reading and drawing and collecting, but this time around, i’ll share less and look more.
the archive is deep: there are hundreds of thousands of words, thousands of photographs, and several hundred drawings; poke around, who knows what you may find.
