Summer Sees New Bloggers 

Three new bloggers have recently come to my attention, to add to the few I've posted about in the past weeks. I guess summer finds us student types with a bit more time on our hands. So, a few introductions are in order.

Welcome, y'all, to Blogaria!



I'm happy to demystify the title of my blog. "Battez-vous" means "Fight!" I draw it from the advice received by D'Artagnan from his father in the first chapter of The Three Musketeers. He is admonished to pick fights and look for trouble. It's a scene I always find charming and funny, illustrating in a stroke a volatile era where thin-skinnedness and youthful pique are the surest path to the heights of the court. To use it as a blog title was an impulse I'm still feeling out; maybe I'm just feeling a little sophomoric and pugnacious. To journal at all is, I find, a trouble-seeking venture, a refusal to let sleeping dogs lie. Life is big and scary: let's poke it with a stick and see what it does.

Thanks for your welcome!
