[I'm going to post -- in fact, I've done it! -- just once for my new blog, Doukipudonktan. If you follow me, I'll see you there.]

→ Hey.

It's been a little more than a year ago since I posted in my blogs. I did occasionally comment in Field Gulls (a very good Seahawks blog), and really occasionally in other places, but mostly I didn't write. Second, writing is really hard now (since my stroke, in 2008; if you don't know about it, if you stick around* it's my largest subject). First, my beloved Velma died of cancer; that would be my supreme subject, but I still mostly can't write about it. { . . . }

Well. In the last month or so, I'm discovering that, even though writing is hard, I want to write about my everyday stuff now. I don't think it's going to be interesting to many people, but Since My Stroke™ I'm forgetting things constantly, and I want to write stuff down for me, even though this is not good writerly stuff anymore.

So. There are many many things to write about in my head; this is an introduction, I guess, from me to me. My last blog, Parlando, I decided was not right for this new tiny thoughts. (I'm probably going to resume posting to Parlando, too, for mostly music thoughts.) This is a new WordPress blog, Doukipudonktan, for everyday things (and also slowly learning again WordPress stuff).

Whew. I'm a little bit tired (again, writing is hard now). This introduction is going to pull several directions if I don't stop. Soooooo....

Hey Soren,

I'm so sorry to hear Velma died, we had no idea. I would love to get in touch with you - I'm currently living with a very dear and old friend of Velma's, Nick (Nicholas) Knoth, and he speaks of her often. We still have some pictures of Velma that perhaps you might like to have, and either way it would be really good to reconnect. This was the only place I could find online to get in touch, send me an email?

So sorry for your loss,
