Hello, my love

As crazy as it seems, I have a new website. It’s simple, it’s streamlined, and it’s now the home of my writing and blogging activities. As of this morning, the new blog contains three entries. While I’ll still be making refinements, and perhaps adding a page or two to accommodate special content, the site is ready for you to visit, with the caveat that while I learn the new platform, there will likely be a few inconsistencies.

While my focus will be on the new website, Recently Banned Literature will be kept live. I will respond to comments on old posts, should any arrive. Nothing, really, is ending. I’m just continuing elsewhere. And, as suggested in my first new post, I think the two places are bound to overlap — this being an archival edifice, that being a traveler’s nigh empty hut.

And so this is where things stand. I’ll close this post with my thanks, and a poem:

One Last Thing

One last thing
before I say hello:
here is a flower.

It cried out at first,
but on you it no
longer seems alone.

Hello, my love. Hello.

Ah! You embraced Wordpress. I wonder if it's easier to use than it was back in the day when I first considered using it to build a site?

Just took a quick look at your creation and give it a "like" and a ~ for good measure.

One Last Thing, thank you...

Thank you, too.

This time around, I hired Stephen Monroe. He’s cranky as all get out, but as conscientious as they come.

I've added it to my bookmarks bar.

Congratulations. This makes me want to build a website. Mine would be Zen. I have no content and no audience.

Bon chance, bon ami!

Merci cher ami et poète frère!

Well.....hello. I will have to check it out. I feel the same about my blog, though often neglected, never out of mind. An archival platform.

That it is. I am really enjoying Wordpress. Thanks for looking in.
