From personal journaling and books to food: dramatic changes to this blog
This wordpress blog is now about 4 1/2 years old. It started as a book blog and as a place to preserve my favourite articles written for Yahoo Voices (2012 to 2014) before Yahoo dismantled the service. It also became a place for me to journal in public, as many blogs do.
I’ve also grown as a spiritual being, including grown much more private about my life and my experiences. This is in part due to success. A largely anonymous and unnoticed author can speak in public without being heard. That, happily, is no longer the case.
The result: much of the older content on this blog is now deleted. By my count, about 35-40% of what was here is now gone. The world doesn’t need to hear the specifics of my past lives nor the slings and arrows of what is today a relatively recent past. I have close friends now who are finally, at long last, proven trustworthy.
My interests have naturally evolved as well. Four years ago “Doctor Who” was a vague impression left by browsing for new ornaments at a Hallmark store in November: an odd blue box and an odder thing called a ‘”dalek.” Today my brand new website created in the winter of 2018 features music from series 8 – 10 of Doctor Who as played by Peter Capaldi.

It’s a welcome change. I am very proud of the new website. But the website also means that this blog simply no longer functions as it once did and no longer needs do.
Going forward, expect this blog to focus much more on food and recipes which I like to collect and refer back to here rather than other places. Though my culinary skills have much to be desired, copying favourite recipes and reposting them here allows me to find what I like best quickly and easily — even if I never acquire the skills needed to actually successfully make any of them.
I hope you like these changes and will enjoy what I find interesting and fun about food.
