For a decade, I’ve been jotting little notes in Phydeaux’ Deauxmayne. It was a name I’d carried forward from a fanzine I published in the 80s, and I loved the play between the pronunciation and spelling. However, I was ready for a change.
The last six months have been full of loads of change for me. The catalyst was my surviving colon cancer in December. After that, I started making some changes, trying to simplify my life, and trying to improve my health. I’ve begun running, and have tried to follow a better diet. I’ve also shuttered my photography business, retiring photography to a hobby for me, rather than a chore. And lastly, I’ve been playing my guitars… a lot.
As part of that overall simplification, I felt like having two online presences didn’t make a lot of sense, especially since one of them had become a “cob-web site” (as my brother once told me). So, enter Canapeel.
Well, it’s a term my wife’s used for years to refer to a meal made of whatever you can find and cook on your own. It’s a noun, it’s a verb. I call Canapeel!
And since I write about so many different things, Canapeel made a ton of sense. So there. 🙂
