Begin, be bold, and venture to be wise.

I'm taking Horace's advice - about beginning, anyway. Like most new blogs, this one is a work in progress. I don't know  what the blog will look like tomorrow, next week, or next year. One thing I do know is why I started it: to talk about Berlin, about history, urban living, politics, and...other stuff. I've begun, but boldness and wisdom might be too much to hope for.

Welcome to the site, and I hope you enjoy it!
