It occurred to me that some readers of this blog are finding these words on Facebook, and that it is not at all self-evident on Facebook (cluttered, obfuscating mess that it is) that these words reside, ultimately, on a blog called Hominy Grits. So, I am announcing that fact, and further engaging in egomaniacal self-reference by encouraging you, dear readers, to check out the rest of this charming, erratic, quixotic corner of blogspace (or whatever they're calling it these days).
By now, you've followed the link through to the actual blog, so you'll be noticing the clever items on the side bar, such as the labels where you can find, at the click of a button, everything I've ever written here on the subject of 'new york city,' for example. Or the list of golden oldies ('best of ...') below that. Amazingly, I've maintained this blog since 2003! Now, how did that happen? On the masthead, you'll see that the subtitle reads 'art, spirit, science.' This is, very roughly, and very broadly construed, what this blog is about. Certainly not a very focused editorial position -- so I'm unlikely to ever win any journalism awards.
As far as the blog's title goes, well, that's a story for another day. Short explanation is: whimsy.
Nonetheless, there are some clever things here! So check them out, and stay tuned for MORE ART. That's what life's all about.
