The Pagan Sphinx blog will be on hiatus for an indefinite amount of time.
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.
I am still in the process of trying to figure out what to do about the blog; whether to just post random updates, facebook style, create the very occasional but substantial art post or put The Pagan Sphinx completely to rest after its three year plus lifespan.
Going over the stats for the blog recently, I saw that there are hundreds of page views daily, mostly driven here by google searches for images and artists, I"m sure. I've even received a handful of thank yous from people kind enough to let me know they had used the blog for educational purposes. I even received a comment telling me I "suck" because nothing on my blog helped with a term paper. :-)
I really should look seriously into wordpress or some other blog format that is more conducive to posting large images and which doesn't generate the constant headaches I face on blogger; everything from trouble uploading photos to issues with text spacing.
The upshot is that I may post something occasionally, especially for the handful of people who have actually cared enough to keep in touch during the hiatus. You know who you are and I thank you deeply for your interest, your friendship and your kindness.
