My wife Emily and I painted our apartment a few months back. When we got to the bedroom, we chose a pale green. “Green is a tricky color,” my mother said, and sure enough when we stared slapping it on the walls, we realized we had made a mistake.
Lesson: Never buy a color called “Impetuous.” So we tried another shade of green, which we liked…until the sun went down and our room turned into something out of Pee Wee’s Playhouse.
Wait til we put the pictures back, then it will look better. Emily gave in. The thought of re-painting was worse than living in a Fun House. And eventually, with the pictures back on the wall, it did start to feel like home.
The new site here doesn’t feel like home yet. It has that new car vibe. The technology is new, there are two new contributors, and a bunch of issues to address–the archives, the comment section, the links. It has been overwhelming. Exciting, but strange and new.
I’m amped about where we are headed. I just wanted to let you know, that I empathize with some of your reactions to the change and appreciate all of the feedback you’ve provided. It’s going to take a minute, and things will continue to be tweaked over the next couple of months, but we’re working on it, and you aren’t alone in getting used to the new digs.
Thanks for coming back.
