One of my favorite Italian writers, Giuseppe di Lampedusa, wrote: "If we want things to stay as they are, things will have to change." So I'm inaugurating my new blog today, to see in the New Year, with the same insightful content, of course, but a good-looking, up-to-date platform with many new features. I call the new blog <a href="http://www.themanoftwistsandturns.com/">The Man of Twists and Turns</a>--check it out and you'll see the Homeric reference behind the new title. I won't be posting to my old Blogger site any more; if you've been following me on Blogger, I hope you'll come to the new blog and subscribe. You can also track my posts on <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Matt.Beynon.Rees?ref=ts">Facebook</a> and on <a href="http://twitter.com/mattbeynonrees">Twitter</a>.
