new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

unpublished hitchens

on slate, unpublished jottings of christopher hitchens from his posthumous book, mortality.

honestly -- i don't know if i will find the courage to even read the book.

here are two snips from the slate page:

larkin good on fear in "aubade," with implied reproof to hume and lucretius for their stoicism. fair enough in one way: atheists ought not to be offering consolation either.

from alan lightman's intricate 1993 novel einstein's dreams; set in berne in 1905:
with infinite life comes an infinite list of relatives. grandparents never die, nor do great-grandparents, great aunts…and so on, back through the generations, all alive and offering advice. sons never escape from the shadows of their fathers. nor do daughters of their mothers. no one ever comes into his own…such is the cost of immortality. no person is whole. no person is free.

the piece includes a beautiful series of photographs.
