Once upon a time—six years ago to be exact—a sort-of-artist started a blog on December 1, with a simple post. She shared this drawing and talked about her love of pinecones and advent calendars. Years passed. She wrote another 220 posts and shared lots of drawings, some block prints and a watercolor or two.
But lately, she started thinking, "Maybe blogging has run its course for me. The world is
going effing crazy different in so many ways, maybe it's time for me to do something different, too."
She remembered a quote from her high school French class: "Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" which, loosely translated, means "The more things change, the more they stay the same."
She thought and thought, and ate some chocolate. She finally decided that, because the world was
going effing crazy changing, it was more important than ever to keep posting her drawings.
And she will.
And she hopes that you will too.
The End (but not)
Author's Note: Giving nary a thought to this blog, or what I posted about in my first-ever post, or 19th-century French journalists, I bought this a few weeks ago:
Pinecones and advent calendars. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
