I haven’t written here with much substance in a very long time–last summer, almost. And so, in the spirit of writing things, I’m giving something a try.

Plinky, recently acquired by Automattic (the WordPress people), is a site created to alleviate writers’ block. They basically provide an essay prompt every weekday as a way to spark blog entries. I’ll give it a try for a while and see how it works out. So if you see entries marked “powered by Plinky,” that’s what’s going on.

Also forthcoming: an entry explaining the images in these posts. I promise there is some rhyme, and maybe even some reason, behind them.
