If the site looks suddenly shorn, this is why: for the last 20 or so months Strength Weekly has hosted ‘Pampas’, a series of short text and image posts with intermittent narrative qualities. In order that ‘Pampas’ could be examined without interruption by scrolling from bottom to top, I stopped writing anything else in Strength Weekly. In the course of those 20 months it gradually became apparent that the approach of the end of the world was accelerating, often just chugging, sometimes moving in fierce leaps. Perhaps I should free up some space in the blog in case there was anything I wanted to say, I thought. So I have created another blog called Pampas which contains Season 1 and Season 2 and nothing else. They are but a click away. I hope you might go there.
