I'm always of two minds regarding change…on the one hand I like new new places, new vistas, new objects and experiences; while at the same time I find great comfort and reassurance in the tried-and-true, the familiar and routine, the honorably worn.
A fine line sometimes, and not always clearly apparent. Which is why I can occasionally dither ridiculously over some of the most inconsequential matters.
Perhaps you noticed today's edition of Riverdaze looks slightly different. I hope you also noticed it doesn't look too different. For some time, I've been thinking of giving the site a complete makeover—a fundamental transformation geared to take advantage of many of the new design features and options Blogger has lately made available. I had in mind an entirely new look. And then the other, resistant, side of my thinking kicked in—the part that appreciates the well-established and accustomed—and I ended up performing more of a tweak than a serious change.
I hope you like the slightly new look and don't find it too jarring. I certainly hope it doesn't cause any viewing problems. Perhaps the biggest improvement is that I can now post photos a bit larger. I'll also be trying a few other changes during the weeks ahead. If you don't like something, if it doesn't work, say so. You are my always welcomed guests here at the riverbank, and I want you to be comfortable and enjoy your visits.
