These are the first two installments of a week-long sequence from 1997 that is a favorite of mine. I’ll show the rest during the week. I’m sorry for being absent so much last week, but sometimes life intervenes. I always feel badly when I skip a post, but I remind myself that I’ve been maintaining, with some regularity, an Internet blog for almost 20 years, almost before “blog” was even a thing. If you look at almost any blog out there, especially personal blogs, most begin fast and tail off very quickly. As I say, I remind myself of that so I won’t feel so bad, not as an excuse to goof off. I value this space and the fact so many of you come here regularly. For you, I intend to keep it up and do better.
