When I launched this blog a little over 12 years ago, I didn’t fool around:
I’m dispensing with a fancy introduction to my blog because what could be more dreary? I’ll say only that my cryptic title has something to do with William Carlos Williams’ useful notion of “no ideas but in things” and that my favorite things are the Red Wing boots that I wear year-round, which I call my “writing boots.” Enough.
And so on and so forth, for 3,200 posts.
And now these Boots keep on writing, at a new site with a more elegant address on a more sophisticated publishing platform (thanks to the fine work of Heather Locke and the team at Hammersmith Support).
If you’d like to make sure you see everything I post here, please enter your email address in the box at the top right, and you’ll get Writing Boots delivered.
Meanwhile, thanks for sticking with me over all these years, my friends.
Clearly, writing for you has been one of the most consistent pleasures of my life.
May it continue.
