And now, the story continues.

by Talka.

I actually did not intend to be quite this quiet the last two weeks, but doing some software upgrades and the problems that invariably come with such upgrades took more time than expected, as they invariably do too.

And then, there's the issue of trying to streamline the process of posting, which invariably seems to take more time than one would like, trying out a few new ideas, and finding that they either don't save the time one would expect them to, or that such streamlining has other costs, and not all of those costs involve money.

Anyway, I'll be easing back into posting over the next few days.

OK, so now where were we? Oh yeah. Way too much has occurred over the previous year to summarize it, so it's futile to try. But we can certainly expect more of the same; much more in fact, along with any number of new surprises, some that will be anticipated by a few forward thinkers, and some that come totally out of nowhere. I believe that 2015 will be an extremely influential year, more influential than any year in quite a few decades. I hope to be able to keep up with these events and to help bring some understanding, either large or small, to those who stop by and spend some time here.

So what the hell is this Talka anyway... A Pseudonym.

Whenever I've posted my own writing here, I've posted it under the byline "NoBC4U". While original, I guess, it's certainly not all that great and it certainly doesn't convey any type of unique identity. But living here in Ukraine, I really don't have any great desire to post under my own name either. So, I'm going with a pseudonym. Talka. That's it. Just plain Talka. Pronounced Tal-ka. One word pseudonyms are quite popular among singers and songwriters especially, but certainly not so among writers of the written word. So is Talka a great idea? Who knows, but it's certainly better than NoBC4U.

Besides, Benjamin Franklin, the Bronte sisters, Charles Dickens, Stephen King, JK Rowling, and Theodore Geisel all wrote under assumed names. If they can, why shouldn't I?
