Readers who have in times past, or only at this moment, been drawn to this blog in expectations of discovering content of an economic or a political bent — and yes, in context of both of these, I have just used the word “bent” with quite deliberate intent — may find my new blog to be something of a disappointment.
As intimated by my last post here, after some 4 years spent dwelling inordinately on those unimportant topics, I am seeking to turn over a new leaf.
Or, more accurately to say, re-turn to an old one.
All readers are, of course, cordially invited to visit, and to duly consider if the material inspired by my new … old … direction, is of a nature or quality that you find worthy of your attention.
And if so, then please do make use of the “Follow” option offered over there in the main menu, in order to receive notifications of new posts by email.
I have also chosen to, in a sense, wipe the slate clean in another way, by opening a new Twitter account, rather than merely renaming the old one. Readers who may presently follow the Twitter account @barnabyisright, may wish to receive updates of new posts by now following @psalmistice instead.
Finally, I would ask readers to consider that, quite unlike barnabyisright, my new blog is intended to be far more of a journal. A quite personal work. And so, while reader comments will generally be most welcome, I would ask prospective commenters to please first bear in mind that I sincerely hope for my new blog to be something of a little haven.
One that seeks to — as I am — studiously eschew those topics that my dearly departed, and very sagacious Nanna, always warned of as being best avoided. Especially in polite company.
Should you now, or in future, discover something on my new blog with which you take issue, please consider taking the opportunity of using the Contact link provided to send me your observation or criticism privately, via email.
You never know.
If your thought is expressed in a manner not inconsistent with the spirit of pleasant and friendly discussion, I might even reply … when I return, from wherever I am.
And so, without further ado, you are extended are warm welcome to my new blog:
Oh yes, a final thought.
I am leaving the content here at barnabyisright.com online, at least for the foreseeable future. If any reader of this now-defunct site wishes to comment on or get in touch concerning any of the articles here, please feel free to send me an email at the following address:

As above, should your intended communication not be delivered in the spirit of friendly discussion, then it may well be worth noting — before beginning to type — that your odds of receiving a response are, perhaps, ably suggested by the address itself.
