Yesterday I was walking down the street and I almost swooned under the influence of a tree full of orange blossoms. Today, I continue repopulating this website and discover that at around this time of the year, 14 years ago, I almost swooned for the very same reason. In fact, that day was very much like this in many ways.

I nearly posted recently about the soul-sapping effort of writing for people whose goal in life seems to be to obfuscate rather than to communicate. And maybe I will one day soon, when I feel less bitter about the experience.

That's from the same bout of repopulating, and remains as true today as it was 14 years ago.
