ABOUT THIS BLOG
What's this blog about?
Nothing in particular. Mainly, I'll be using it as a kind of scrapbook to collect quotes, images and links that strike my fancy. There might be longer, original content from time to time, too.
Are comments allowed?
Yes, but I'll screen comments before they are published and will ask those who want to comment on this blog to provide an email address. The address will be used for purposes of identification only, and will not be published (unless requested otherwise).
What does the name mean? Not much, I hope. My top priority in selecting a name was to give myself maximum latitude in subject matter. Apart from the image of a pencil tumbling writing-tip over eraser-end in the air, "flipping pencils," I think, has few specific connotations. But there is some personal significance. Often when I'm thinking about something, I'll obsessively flip a pencil. When I catch them, the flips are 360-degree rotations starting and ending with the writing-tip pointing outward.
