The blog is dead; long live the blog!

In case you haven't guessed, I've been back from Rome for two months now. Much as I like this blog, it has fulfilled its purpose as a journal of my Roman adventures, and it must come to an end. I won't be returning to Basia Me, however. For "it, too, has resigned its part / In the casual comedy." After three-and-a-half years, I feel like I've written everything I can write on Basia Me Catholica Sum. I've started a new blog, one I've been planning for several months now. Its main focus will be poetry, but I will also post the sort of material I've been posting on Basia Me, when I feel like it. The problem with my old blog was that it had almost no parameters when I started it back in high school, and over time the lack of focus wore me down. So I'm relieved to be starting For Keats' Sake! This is the blog I've always wanted to write. I just posted some photos of Keats's grave that I took shortly before leaving Rome, which makes a smooth transition, I think.

Thank you for reading Hesperia and Basia Me! I hope that the new blog will make all you poetry-lovers happy. And rebellious. And giddy at my righteous fiskings.

Hmm. We will see.
