“The Moving finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on…”

– Verse 51 of Edward FitzGerald’s translation of the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám

I use this quote here because I’m revisiting my old writing, looking at old blog posts.  Sadly, having writ, I don’t like what my finger wrote; I haven’t moved on.  Am I the only one who revisits old writing and invariably feels the need to wretch?  I can’t be.

Something’s not right, though.  These posts either seem too short, too long, or altogether too stiff.  Rarely do I get it right.  Perhaps the brevity of Instagram is where it’s at.  Picture, picture, hashtag, done?  ∆
