Thursday, January 19, 2012 is here.

Today is the first day of my blog, named most courageously and enigmatically, and it finds me sitting in a small kitchen in the Belleville section of Paris.

As I age, I find technology expands at a rate proportionate to the speed with which it slips further and further into my rear-view mirror.  Not that a blog is new, by any means.  But still.

In an ancient city like this, that's not the worst feeling in the world, but it does remind me of being a teenager and watching my parents fumble around with the remote control. Except, of course, I'm no longer a teenager, if you get my meaning.  All of this is preamble to say ... Watch This Space!  Ca va changer!  I might even mention a word about Paris one of these days!
