Yeah ok, but what the hell is this space?
Fair question. I'm not really sure yet, to be honest. I've had a website for a couple of years now, but it's been a hassle to maintain, mainly due to the host I was using. I'd always hoped to have a blog as part of the website, too, but always been stopped short by the questions above. I've had blogs at various points in my life, though they have mainly included a lot of introspection and angst. I'd rather avoid that here.
So this space, as I see it right now, will be a place to collect my recent activities. Right now, I think monthly updates seem reasonable. A molasses-slow news feed. I may, of course, indulge in commenting on current events, especially where they concern writing and art. I reserve the right to do whatever I want with this blog, really. It's an ongoing project.
So this is all about you, is it?
Yeah. I mean, isn't that the point? As I said, I've struggled with the idea that anyone really cares about my unrevised thoughts. Who the hell do I think I am, anyway? But it occurs to me that if anyone cares about the art I make, then perhaps they also care about how that art came about and what I think about the world I move through.
So that's the Big Idea. To share what I'm doing and comment on what I see. This is the beginning of that. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
