I started this blog to keep track of what books I read or what I saw at the cinema or on tv. Sometimes I’ve treated it like a clippings file. But it has become more than these things over time.

Now I’d say it’s an informal conversation, mostly with myself.

It’s always in progress. Things change.


If you want a sense of who I am, probably the place to start is this post written in the wake of the Orlando Pulse shooting.

I tend to like the posts about my garden and think there aren’t enough of them or of posts about September and November.

In addition to the blog proper, I have a commonplace book.

This site has mascots.

It also, sometimes, remembers.
