First day of spring, in the Northern hemisphere! Congratulations to you all, long winter survivors, and especially those of us who were greeted by the arriving equinox with a foot of snow yesterday! Say what you may, spring is in the air.. And on this sentimental note I want to send you a bouquet of flowers… I borrowed them from my friend Christina before giving them to her for her birthday… It’s a mysterious and rebellious looking flower, with an equally rebellious name: Rununculus, a.k.a. Persian buttercup. It has that antique patina and textured presence that is reminiscent of Flemish still life paintings.
Today is also the first day of my new migrated blog. As Posterous - which I’ve used for over 3 years as my blog host - will be closing their virtual doors in April, it was time to migrate to new pastures. After some nerdy conversing with my programmer - extraordinaire husband Agustin, our choice fell on Tumblr, an open, simple and connected platform. I fell in love with the theme Solaris (its name borrowed from the 1972 movie by the visionary Soviet director Andrei Tarkvosky). Agustin then migrated all the contents of my old blog to Tumblr using JustMigrate - a task that we have been dreading since Posterous made the announcement, but that was made easy and quite seamless by the websites’s interface. Thank you to Posterous for having been a great host, to JustMigrate team for making useful tools, and to you Agus, for making my life easier (and more beautiful all around)!
