Sometimes an old solution is better than a newer one. A couple years ago, in another period of fairly regular posting, I started a little series items called “finds.” I got as far as 4. More recently, I started a different series called “you just missed it.” I’ve found that that title led to a recurrent sense of disappointment and missed opportunity, at least for me, and I don’t think there’s a need for more of that sort of thing, so I’m retiring it.
There was also an actual missed opportunity, since it made it implausible to include items about events that in fact had occurred some time ago. A find can be anything. And it will be. I’ll be unearthing some material from old drafts, as well as new discoveries, connecting items where there are connections, writing something when I have something to say, but otherwise just pointing in their direction.
