a redesign and a reboot...

so, in the last year or so, I've been working at a job that has been so exhaustingly involved that I haven't been able to think, let alone be interesting in my free time.

and for years before this past one, I'd loved my job so much I was afraid of being dooced (look it up) for blogging about it. and everything in my life, pretty much, was somehow centered around my job.

so, basically, this domain has been lying fallow, and I've been completely out of practice at writing things.

I found a new home for the domain, and a new host for the system, but I can't decide what I want to do with it yet. not even sure if I should repost my favorite stuff from the old site, or just start anew. i know it's too much to hope to be good, or even interesting, at first, but  maybe with practice I'll find my voice again, and that will be something. 

while archiving the old picturepicture(dot)net, I couldn't help but re-read everything - and I'm actually pretty shocked at how little I remember writing from that old site. There was a lot there I actually quite liked, actually. I guess I need to decide if I want to re-post old stuff, or start fresh. 

either way. it looks like this is the new picturepicture(dot)net for now. Happy 2014.
