There’s more than one way to skin a blog

… but it sure is tough to find the right way. Especially, when you have limited choices.

Well, that last skin didn’t work too well, did it? Thanks to my friend, Lissa, who pointed out that a dark template does not suit me. I am actaully flattered with that statement, as I usually see myself drawn to the daaahhk side (artistically speaking, that is) even when my personality does not reflect it, at all. What a paradox I am, sometimes! Sigh!

Okay, so let’s do this again. Since I’ve been trying (and trying is the keyword here) to live somewhat green for about a year now, I think it’s time to reflect some of that on my page. And it’s kinda fun that I get to switch headers too. Something I haven’t had a chance to do before. This one I have right now is a photo I took a couple of years ago at the Denver Zoo. I have so may photos that I took but hardly any fits on here. I should go out and shoot some more, eh?

And what now? Oh, that’s right! The title A Dark in the Light is now replaced by the more affirmative sounding A Brighter Touch of Haze. I just thought it’s time to move on from gloomy to hopeful. I am in no way completely detached from the ghost of the past but I am getting there, slowly but surely. I hope my friends get to know the real me from this point forward.

Actually, A Brighter Touch of Haze is an old song of mine. A song of hope with somewhat abstract lyrics. Here it is…

The server’s down temporarily, I think. If the song doesn’t play, try again in a few.

Meanwhile, on to writing a new song…

  1. play with the css yourself.. you can always go back and reload another theme if you screw one of them up…..

    you have missed your calling blogging… you should be writing and sining songs… no .. really….

    You probably use and host your own blog. I don’t, so I can’t save my edits if I played around with the CSS. But you’re right… enough of this nonsense. On to songwriting…

  2. The new theme looks great, man… even more encouraging is the fact that this theme is permeating your personal life more and more…

    Nice job, man!

    Thanks, man!

  3. I like the new name, couldn’t hear the song at the moment though

    I like this much better, I do know the templates in are limited but this fits you well, plus since you have to look at your blog each you post, it should be something inviting and makes you want to write

    gonna have to remember to change the name in my blogroll

    You’re right! Thanks for your help, Lissa.
