the last post

and that i guess will have to be that and this, more or less, the last blog post. nearly made it to seven years but not quite.

final scores on the doors were (in ascending order) claribel alegria, bertolt brecht, elma mitchell, william maxwell (hurrah!), carol ann duffy, pauline stainer and finally, the dark lord of them all, margaret atwood.

what's mediated the decision? too little time, too little motivation maybe? browsing back i have to say i'll miss the blog. of course i'll be about on the behemoth that is facebook but it's not the same. not as good, not as pleasant but kind of more useful. certainly i don't have the enthusiasm i once did. which isn't to say i'll never post on here again just that, if i do, it'll be a lot less frequent. i will however continue to respond to comments.

in the meantime thanks to everyone who's read, posted, followed or interacted with the blog in whatever fashion. it was a good run and there's plenty to look back over.

take care and switch off the lights on your way out.....

classic book covers


there seems to be a lot of book covering remixing going on at the moment but these xmen ones are particularly well realised even if you don't know much about the comic
