note to RSS feed readers

Because my other web site is moving to, I will update some links here to reflect the new address. That may cause older posts to reappear in your feed reader. I apologize in advance.

On the bright side, it can be an opportunity to see how those older essays fit with new ones.

Thanks for your interest and attention.

my new site,

My new web site,, is up and running, thanks to my friend Chris and his web hosting assistance.

This blog will stay, but my other personal web site (at will go away as soon as the new one appears at the usual web search sites. If you have a bookmark or a link, please update it.

I think of this blog as a rough draft writing area. Ideas are scattered around here, and though tags help to connect some of the pieces, reverse chronological presentation still restricts the way ideas can be assembled here. is a place where I can assemble and rearrange ideas in more interesting and useful ways.

Thanks for stopping by.
