Of course

Now, after my two-week jaunt through Europe, during which blogging was sporadic despite earlier promises to the contrary, does WordPress introduce a blogging platform for the iPod Touch.

Timing is everything.

New layout: redux

The photo is of Stephansdom, the most widely known and recognized cathedral in Vienna. Located in Stephansplatz, the city’s undisputed centre, it was the site of Mozart’s funeral in 1791. Vienna, as I’ve mentioned elsewhere, was my favourite travel destination and will likely remain my favourite international city until such time when I discover another one (not likely). And Mozart, of course, published like it was going out of style before he perished, was eulogized at Stephansdom and carted away for burial in an unmarked mass grave.

We’ll all perish, so let’s get publishing.

New layout (x3)

The old one didn’t look right in Windows for some reason…

One cliché after another: The “things I’ve always wanted to do and swear I will do before I die” list

  1. Learn Russian. (I don’t know why or where it comes from, but I’ve always wanted to.)
  2. Take pictures as a serious hobby. (This was spawned more recently, but I’m excited about it. So there.)
  3. Not have to live vicariously through others. (And yet remain boring old self, as it’s the only way I’d have things.)
  4. More as I think of remember them.

I’m getting better

And so it goes

I apologize for the semi-unapologetic existential tone the blog has taken on during the past few months. I blame the following:

  • Having been out of school for a year
  • Fast approaching the beginning of the end of my early twenties
  • Planning the move into what you might call a grown-up apartment
  • Trying to figure out the rest of my life

I, like Joshie, have a metaphorical road map. But mine differs from his in that his involves a concrete plan for more schooling and mine includes more schooling as a footnote, mostly because I’d like to be able to get hooded again before I die. And I will not likely be leaving Toronto for more than a few days at a time — now or in the generally near future. But it’s there, and I’m not afraid of it anymore.

And now that I’ve said that, I’m going to get hit by a bus.

Let me tell you about Vienna

That may really be all that needs to be said.

People continue to ask which city was my favourite, and I continue to say that I can’t choose.

But what I’m trying to say is “Vienna.”
