By the new year my blog will have all of the above–with of course a redirect page.
I like my current URL; I was going to keep it as a protest for the next four years. But while I want to continue writing political rants, I don’t want people to see the URL “FreeNYNYfromBush…” and be turned off to reading it.
Can’t help that. I want all people to at least try reading my blog once. Then a person can hate me if he/she wants to. I don’t personalize comments.
Everybody likes to be liked. And I love the encouraging comments. But the negative ones serve a purpose also. They inspire me to write more, to learn more, to research any question I can’t answer.
That’s my sickeningly earnest rant for the year.
Note: I know that Bakersfield and Barstow aren’t going to win any beauty awards, but for a Northerner who dreams of the west they have a fantasy under tone. I did say Noir not art deco or riot of colors though some of the best noir places have both (South Beach, Miami Beach where I spent my second winter, and then watched go from old people’s heaven to body beautiful.)
I just spend too much time plotting my move to California– a beach town near LA that I love, not Venice but next to it–Santa Monica where I can go from the beach to Topanga Canyon to the Santa Monica Mountains all in the space of an afternoon.
A Manhattanite who has to travel to get to the ocean, mountains and wouldn’t know a canyon if it hit me in the head, can dream impossible dreams.
