Happy New Year!

"As soon as you start writing, even if it is under your real name, you start to function as somebody slightly different, as a "writer". You establish from yourself to yourself continuities and a level of coherence which is not quite the same as your real life... All this ends up constituting a kind of neo-identity which is not identical to your identity as a citizen or your social identity, Besides you know this very well, since you want to protect your private life."

Michel Foucault. 'Je suis un artificier'. In Roger-Pol Droit (ed.), Michel Foucault, entretiens. Paris: Odile Jacob, p. 106. (Interview conducted in 1975. This passage trans. Clare O'Farrell).

Happy New Year Todd! Hope you're enjoying the wintry weather, and as excited as I am to start training for the coming year's athletic events!

Hi, Todd--
Happy New Year. It was good to hear you and Elizabeth at the Marathon:
Interestingly, it's gotten nearly double the hits of any of my other Marathon photos.
