I once remarked to my wife, on the matter of organizing and shelving books, that “all categories are elastic.” This expression has become a bit of shibboleth with us, and I have adopted it as the title for this blog because I intend to write about whatever I may find of interest on any given day, without regard to whether it falls into any convenient category. For the most part, I expect to be writing about music, books, history, politics, and foreign affairs, in no particular order.
I wrote the words above about two years ago, when I started this blog on the WordPress.com site. I always intended to move Elastic Categories to my own website when I got it built, but that took much longer than I planned, as is so often the case. However, I’ve finally installed WP on my site, so I am resurrecting this blog and I hope to post to it more frequently than I did in the past, other demands on my time permitting.
