Happy New Year!
Now that that’s out of the way, a bit of explanation. The familiar German Post Office letterbox is gone. Well, OK, it’s still standing there around the corner, but it’s gone from this blog. I finally dumped her.
I simply found the WordPress Cutline theme too harsh-looking. Too white. Too sterile.
Redoable Lite one has a warmer feel, the slightly larger text on a dark grey background much easier on the eye, not only for reading, but also viewing photos.
I have to admit I hate those stupid red bars clashing on either side of the top photo, the font on the sidebar is too tiny and the blogroll is now kind of scrunched up. And that looming empty space top right – what’s up with that?
But everything’s a compromise with the themes WordPress.com offers, so until I go for customisation, it’ll have to do.
The photo on top: taken in June 2007 in Britannia Beach, located about half-way between Vancouver and Whistler Mountain, BC Canada. A less elevated view filled up our front window when I was growing up.
Some look at the view and say I was crazy to leave. I say, not so.
Hope you like it.

PS: The b&w pic top right is also a bit of an update. Like by about 16 years.
