Bear with me while I try and figure out how I might use this place in future. I'm wondering about using it as a scrapbook rather than a diary. Facebook and Twitter have come to divert me and many others from the old fashioned business of composing and posting longer-form pieces of mind. But it is a good. And I'm certainly glad it's still here.
I have thought of using this place to park pieces of writing - translations of poems, for instance - that might be of interest to one or two people out there in the wide world. More broadly, I quite often find scraps of articles / images / quotations that I want to keep in mind, for current work or just because. And I think about posting them to those everyday social networks but am unsure for one reason or another. So I might try and form the habit of posting such things here.
ps And I have been listening to / watching a lot of Stereolab.
