farewell from 'the deletions'

After several technical issues with the blogger dashboard and considering the teensy audience for this old faithful blog I've decided to 'close' it - that is to stop posting blog-notes & images here. I've been doing it for over a decade & it's been an enjoyable & useful enterprise.

If you like you can find me on basefook
or check in on my poetry life here

The sidebar has disappeared so I'd like to re-post the stanza
I use as a kind of general approach to life & art -

Now I forgive the delicious lunacy
Which made me use up all my best years
Without my work bringing any advantage other
Than the pleasure of a long delinquency.
                 Joachim Du Bellay, The Regrets, 1558

             bye bye
