Name Change

I have decided to change the name of my blog to "The Urban Flaneur". The old (all of a couple of weeks old) name did not really sit well with my inner self. And as one dear friend mentioned, it reminded her of an American Express commercial.

So why "The Urban Flaneur" you ask? It represents a vision of what I would like to be; that is a person living in an urban environment who wanders aimlessly around their city, or any city.

" A flaneur is a stroller, a loiterer, someone who ambles through a city without apparent purpose, but is secretly attuned to the history of the place and in covert search of adventure, aesthetic  or erotic." ... The Flaneur by Edmund White. 

The content will not change and your options to read or not read remain the same. And, as always, you comments are welcomed.
