The first blog post on a new website is probably more akin to the befouling of a pristine litterbox than the Platonic ideal of a writing: the crisp scrawl of a black pen across ecru pages of a notepad. (If I knew more about typewriters I’d throw their aficionados a bone, but alas.)
And yet, it must be done. Especially if your new website comes with it all set up ahead of time like some sort of Calvinist imperative to blog.
Anyways, here’s to future words.
Oh, and I took this picture of a ground story window somewhere near Stuyvesant Village on the Lower East Side. I’m afraid there’s no context for it, but I am fond of it.
