Summary:
  • October 2010I’ve been inspired by José Saramago’s extraordinary blogs, which he posted when he was 85 and 86 years old.
  • So, though I have contributed a few bloglike objects to Book View Café, I never enjoyed them.
  • After all, despite the new name, they were just opinion pieces or essays, and writing essays has always been tough work for me and only occasionally rewarding.
  • My trials/attempts/efforts (that’s what essays means) so far have very much less political and moral weight than Saramago’s and are more trivially personal.
  • Maybe that will change as I practice the form, maybe not.
