". . . and came out clean on the other side"

In response to the new blog layout, my friend Richard asked, "It's April Fool's Day, right?"

Well, this isn't some joke or stunt. After five years of looking at dark blue with dark green, I figured it was time to look at something that was light green and blue.

Why the change in design? Frankly, I was inspired after I checked out Keith's (new-to-me) blog, Celluloid Highways. Something about it -- especially its clean layout and easy-to-navigate design -- just made me think of how I could make this blog a better read.

The change also represents a new leaf turning in my life.

I don't want to go into specifics just yet, but I have no problem speaking about this in metaphors. Some big things have changed in my life for the better while some thing that's been lingering for years must be worked on. When that happens, I'll write about it, but for now, I'm still plotting a break from a Shawshank prison that's been locking up a lot of my brain for way too long.

Apologies for the vagueness, but it's something I've mentioned before. Matter of fact, it was something I wrote a lot (also in rather vague terms) while I was in the middle of writing POST.

Again, I can't go into specifics here on the blog just yet, but understand this, there are things in my life that I've greatly hoped for and they're thankfully in my life now. Being with someone as warm, kind, and supportive as Diana and with playing in the Pull Tabs have helped me see life beyond next week and really towards much brighter things in the future.

So here's to happy (and clearer) days ahead.
