LONGLEAF STORIES

full circle in the hundred acre wood

Thanks to the smarts and generosity of poet, writer, photographer, naturalist, observer of the human condition and well-known blogger extraordinary, Dave Bonta, an archive of my original blog, Switched At Birth, has been discovered. I guess that makes Dave an archeologist, too.

As a result, months of typing, frustration and most likely giving up, have been avoided. There is still some cutting and pasting, to be sure, but substantially reconstructing the old blog, including comments, is now within reach, and I’ll be working on it post by post for the next few weeks. And once it’s done, I’ll merge the new and old — and as you can see, have already reverted from “Too Much Sugar For A Dime” to the old name.

Frankly, getting a look at the old girl, risen from the dead in its original format, was an emotional moment. You all know how it is. This is our lives we’re writing about here.

Where in cyberspace did Dave find me?  In a few small volumes on a surgically clean shelf at The Internet Archive. Check it out — you’ll be amazed at what’s there.

And while you’re clicking to some of the most fascinating spots, add Dave’s blog, Via Negativa, and the literary magazine he co-edits, Qarrtsiluni, to your “must read” list.

    Fascinating. I found a few pages of my old smokyblog blog, words which I thought were long gone, just a few pages tho. One page even had a few of the old images but most of them were gone. Thanks for the memories.
