But I still love preppy style and aesthetics, and still love talking about them with the society of like-minded others. And I've noticed an interesting thing happens when I share random photos and snippets with my preppy friends on Facebook: people respond. Sometimes it's with a comment, sometimes just a "like," but its abbreviated nature notwithstanding, it feels like a real conversation is taking place. Additionally, this method of communication lends itself well to spontaneity, and offers a better venue for the images and observations that cross my path on a daily basis--as well as being a more regular stream for the deep reservoir of archival material I've amassed over the years.
With that in mind, I'm going to try an experiment: a Wide Wale group page on Facebook. While I intend to keep the blog going for a little while longer as a sounding board for more long-winded ruminations, I hope some of you will come check out the group, join, and participate.
Have fun, and as Lisa Birnbach would say, "play nice."
Happy New Year to all!
