New Horizons

April 8th, 2012

I’m back.

We’ve been in our cottage, pictured below, for a little more than a month now. And though we’re far from settled (the floor is still being laid in the bedroom and I haven’t found the can opener yet), I feel it is time to take up the threads of my life again.

Our Cottage

If this is not your first time here, you’ve probably noticed that the site has a new “theme,” as it were. I admit to borrowing shamelessly from Mucha and Beardsley, but you know they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Why go nouveau? It’s always been an appealing aesthetic, and now that I find myself living in an early 20th century bungalow it’s also rather appropriate. And I can’t think of a better way to express my expanding eras. Besides, who doesn’t love peacocks?

Those horizons I mentioned in the post title are broad indeed. Physically, on the California coastline, and metaphorically, as I ponder what I should do with the rest of my life.

More soon.
