my sweet old etcetera.

Now that my blog is (almost) how I want it, I thought I'd better explain the name change. In case you didn't notice, this here blog is no longer called "I blog, therefore I am." Not after I found 10,000 blogs that had the same name on Google. (Damn, and I thought I was being so clever...)

I was rooting around for different blog names when I came a poem I'd never read before by one of my favorite poets, e.e. cummings:

my sweet old etcetera
aunt lucy during the recent

war could and what
is more did tell you just
what everybody was fighting

for,
my sister

Isabel created hundreds
(and
hundreds)of socks not to
mention fleaproof earwarmers
etcetera wristers etcetera, my
mother hoped that

i would die etcetera
bravely of course my father used
to become hoarse talking about how it was
a privilege and if only he
could meanwhile my

self etcetera lay quietly
in the deep mud et

cetera
(dreaming,
et
cetera, of
Your smile
eyes knees and of your Etcetera) 

It was like a light turned on inside my head! I knew in that very moment I'd found my new blog name. To celebrate, I got a new, springy blog layout aaaand I made a new blog button, which you're welcome to grab below to put on your blog. :-)



Love at first write


Please read my very important post from earlier today concerning Senate Bill 6/House Bill 707!
