Improvements


I'm going to be experimenting with some new title banners atop the blog to try and liven things up a little bit and take this blog to the next level. The new graphic is courtesy of my girlfriend's dad, Luther, who is a highly talented graphic designer. And, just in case anybody is wondering (like he was) what the title actually means, read this post. The title contains various meanings, some of which I'm only realizing as we go along.

The image you see in the background of the banner is from M.C. Escher's Metamorphosis II, a long and mesmerizing panel displaying a drawn out story of growth and evolution (building). In my San Diego apartment I had the full drawing (about 10 feet long) displayed across the top of my living room wall but it was destroyed when we made the move out here so I'm paying homage to that wonderful piece of art here for "A Building Roam," a title that certainly conjures evolution and architecture.

You'll also notice that I've incorporated a widget from Amazon.com on the sidebar displaying all of the books I'm currently reading. If anything sounds interesting, please feel free to go ahead and click on the books in the widget because anything purchased through there will be of benefit to me and it would be greatly appreciated.

I've also added a new feature lower down on the sidebar displaying the most popular posts in the brief history of this blog. It's got a few of my favorites in there and, if you haven't already seen that stuff I highly recommend you give it a look to get a good feel for what this blog is really concerned with.

  1. I have to admit that I didn't get the Building Roam play on words until it was spelled out for me. Very good. Up till now, I just assumed it was a Joyce quote I hadn't got to yet.
