I have been doing this thing since early 2015. WordPress tells me today's is the 1500th published entry.

I started this as a project to which I committed to post every day. After a couple years, I cut back to every other day. Still a commitment that sometimes I find challenging.

I have tried to keep this varied, to live up to the "random" in the tag. But of course there's been a strong tendency to respond to the provocations of our national politics, since late 2016.

I also have a tendency to post music I like. For a while there were Train Music Thursdays. Then I added Waltz Wednesdays, and then Train Music Thursdays came to an end. Other postings are sprinkled around with music, just because.

Which is a pretty fair description of why I have this blog at all.

Just because.
