Welcome to my new blog! I’ve made several previous attempts at blogging that have been derailed for various reasons. The most recent, and most successful, which died due to technical difficulties, is here: http://www.anewyorkerinexile.blogspot.com/. But I’m paying for this one, and one would hope that this factor will give me extra motivation. This summer my goal is to write some every day, whether I am writing here, or writing literary criticism, or writing poetry, or fiction, whatever. The blog will focus primarily on literary topics, but may also address sports (especially now, with the Mets still contending in the National League East and the Rangers in the Eastern Conference Final of the Stanley Cup playoffs) and other topics.
“I celebrate myself, / And what I assume you shall assume, / For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.”
–Walt Whitman, “Song of Myself” (1855)
