It’s been some while now since I decided to discontinue this blog, but my initial reaction was that I’d allow it to sit fallow – to ignore it, essentially, and let it sit silently in its corner of the web, even though there continues to be a steady trickle of visitors, mainly for my pictures of Okinawa than for anything else. Yet tonight, my last night in New York City for the foreseeable future – I decided it would be an indignity to just let the blog die in this fashion, given that it was for a brief time a love and passion of mine. I should give it a fond salute and farewell before declaring it officially dead, which, I suppose, I am now doing.
I came to New York some two decades ago and in the meantime managed to think about a lot and accomplish very little. I don’t regret my time here, even the many missteps I’ve made. But a fond New York memory for me will always be the time when I returned to graduate school, moved to Brooklyn, started this blog and used it to learn, a little more than I would have otherwise, about the world we live in.
As I head to the west coast, I think more and more about returning to writing, but won’t do so until I have a sharper sense of what I want to say. In the meantime, good luck and best wishes to everyone who’s stopped by and paid a visit.
