A glance tells me this blog started in April 2018. This is April 2021. An anniversary month invites breaking the fourth wall for a moment.
Brokenly, the endeavor here is twofold: (1) to practice writing; (2) to practice translating.
I try to air punchy aperçus on few themes in choice words. Translating poems helps me give them a closer reading than otherwise I would.
Implicit in all this, however, is a craving to be noticed — Look what I’ve done! — otherwise, why press the “Publish” button?
I cherish your notice, thank you for it, invite more going forward, and will try to reciprocate.
