Dear readers, in my ongoing and mostly futile attempt to simplify my life, I have put the kibosh on my tumblelog, or online commonplace book — it used to be mentioned in the bio to your right, but has just been ruthlessly excised. From now on the random quotations, photos, and links that once populated that site will populate this one. if it’s only a link, or a link that needs a very brief description, I’ll post it via the Text Patterns Twitter feed; otherwise it will show up on this very page. Now I will have fewer decisions to make. Whew.
