This is an empty blog except for this notice. I decided to delete all content, and since I didn't save any of it, it is simply gone, unless Google has secretly kept some memory of it somewhere.

A fair question.

I think there are times in our lives when we must or simply do "turn a corner", leaving things behind, whether they are physical things, behaviors, former friends.

Maybe I'm a bit like an artist who creates things which inherently will disappear, like sand castles or sand paintings, or maybe more like the artist who intentionally destroys his own work.

But I have no feelings that the work that I did here was great art or such great writing. Some may blog for some idea of a kind of fame or posterity, but that was never my purpose. When I had some posts that generated a lot of comments I found it discomforting, and I have to add that I don't know why.

So this blog turns a corner and doesn't look back, and people's memories of it, my memories of it will gradually fade. Even so, there is a bit of me that sees the rise in global information content, and the perpetuity of that content as something that is a bit senseless, so if Google doesn't have some cache of my blog somewhere, I've taken the matter out of their hands.

Happy to see you are still writing. Best to you.
