This is my first posting.
Which is not to imply that other postings will follow— a probable second, a possible third, a likely fourth, perhaps.
Consider it my last, too.
You know what they say: “art is long and life is short” and we may not be around long enough to see how it all turns out.
This— is how it turns out: it begins here and ends here.
Now about the in-betweens (because the middle is always the meatiest part): let’s just say if they come, they come.
And if they don’t come?
Then call me Sloth, and I am happy to make your acquaintance.
