Another New Look

Yes, indeed, I am changing the look of my blog again! I decided that I was getting bored with the way it looked, and I was never 100% happy with the way my banner turned out (woe to me that my computer skills are not more advanced than they are). Now that I can post at will again (no more self-imposed gag order in a futile effort to keep an unwanted job), I am making improvements.

Sorry about the long absence, readers. I did what I felt I had to do to keep that job, and that meant not using my blog. Now that I'm free, I shall post to my heart's content! When I get back from my weekend trip to Manassas, I hope to get around to finally posting those photos from my summer trip out west (it certainly has been a while, hasn't it?).

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
