My wife asked me who "Who's that woman on your blog?" and I had no idea what she was talking about.

"You put her picture on your blog!"

"Oh. Oh! That's me!"

So after being reminded that quizzila says I'm really Christine Hamm, I decided I'd better find out who I was, and google tells me I—I mean she—has a blog, this is all your fault. It's been around 2 years! Infrequently but recently updated, it's now over there on the left in that looong list.

If you haven't already, go read Tim Yu's reply to my email. I think most of us understand each other rather better now, even if we don't agree: an unusual outcome for someone used to list-serves and Usenet. Maybe Nick Piombino really is on to something about blogs.

One last thing (yeah I said that before): Tim says "what isn't unpredictable is the past use of that form, its history, which guarantees that if a form does 'make a comeback,' it will never be precisely the same as it was before." The second half of that is surely correct, but I'd argue that the high modernists were wrong about the use and nature of meter and form, and that some of the work necessary is in understanding their mistakes so that we can see that history more clearly, or at least differently. Sounds almost pomo, don't it?

I've added a request link under "Me & Mine" and I've got a spiffy new slogan up in the banner, thanks to Jonathan Mayhew:

"Making Poetry Safe For Lime Polyester Slacks Since September, 2002"
