New Beginnings

January 20, 2008

4c_1_b.jpg Every four years on this date somebody gets sworn in as President of the United States, and today I’m inaugurating a new administration of my own in this Web site. I promise that its constitution will be benign — if unavoidably autocratic. It will exist to treat, in one domain whose borders will gradually extend, music and literature the sharing of which I find so conducive to my own life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

It also happens to be the anniversary of the day when I was first “given to light,” as they say in Spanish. So for that reason, too, it seems a good day to dar a luz a venture of this kind.

I hope you’ll join me here often, always remembering that I welcome backtalk.
