Housekeeping, Part 1

I'm switching from my old blog, Shoeless, to this one.

I've been meaning to switch for the last few months. I lost the password for Shoeless at least a year ago, so I'd only been able to post to that blog - I couldn't change the sidebar links or the background graphics, and I couldn't collect the $6.14 in ad revenue I'd earned over my three year blogging career.

Anyway, this is my new blog. The name is stolen from Julio Cortázar's Hopscotch, and the complete line reads, "Nothing is lost if there is the courage to proclaim it lost and start again."

I think the line captures everything I love about Cortázar's writing - his perpetual youth, sly humor, and constant parody of parody of parody.
