Fair Weather

Three years ago, almost to the day, I started The Bewildered Eye. But recently three people I love and trust have suggested that the energy I'm directing here might be better directed toward other, more urgent work.

And in truth my heart's not in it anymore. I've grown tired of this voice—of its possibilities; I no longer require the man who made it. All literary voices are inventions: The Bewildered Eye's invented voice is mercifully obsolete.

Obama's re-election now nailed the Eye's coffin closed.

Over the coming months I'll revisit what I've made here, and I'll probably refine some of the posts a bit, and I might create some kind of "Selected Works" label for the writing I continue to approve of. But I won't add to it; I consider it complete—finished—

But for this: Thank you for listening.

Update: I haven't done much refining, but the "Selected Works" label is now in place.


  1. Hey outstanding blog! Does running a blog such as this take
    a great deal of work? I've no expertise in computer programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I just wanted to ask. Kudos!

  3. I think everything published made a lot of sense. But, consider this, suppose you composed a catchier post title?
    I ain't saying your information is not good, but suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean "Nice Weather" is a little boring. You could look at Yahoo's front page and
    see how they create post headlines to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about
    what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
