New look for 2009

Monday, December 29th, 2008

I’ve finally managed to put up a header image to illustrate the title of this blog: the moving sidewalk of immigrants that have made their way to and through New York, starting with the 17th-century Walloons. My artwork may imply an attitude of cheerful innocence, but that’s more a result of inadequate drawing skills than my actual ideas about what it was like to cross an ocean and begin a new life in a strange land.

For 2009, I’m hoping to see more sanity in U.S. immigration policy, especially an end to our inhuman detention policy.

And on a personal note, I intend to start producing the historical fiction about immigrants that I’ve been thinking about for many months.

See you next year!
