Today is my birthday. I say this not in any attempt to solicit good wishes — I’ve already had tons of those from fabulous friends and family! — but to explain the change in the blog’s banner. My friend Robi, who lists among his many talents a graphic design sensibility I simply do not have, gave me the coolest birthday present he could possibly have given me: a set of re-designed banners! So I’m starting with this one, and I’ll change them out over the next couple of weeks now and then. Enjoy!
