Ambition this shall tempt to rise,
And moody Madness laughing wild
Amid severest woe.
-from Thomas Gray's "Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College"
Belated anniversary to me
Yesterday, completely unnoticed by me, was the third birthday of Laughing Wild. For the year ahead, I promise that I will continue my unfocused, sporadic ways, sometimes posting about politics, sometimes posting about my kids, sometimes posting about music, sometimes just putting up one-line posts linking to one of the many bloggers who is a better writer than I am.
