CHAPTER 1: In Which Baslow Contemplates His Online 'Presence'
Baslow has delayed posting anything too personal to his blog until now. He has wanted to learn a little about the technicalities of blogging, first. He has intended, also, to establish himself in his initial postings as someone 'in the world', so to speak, someone whose interests reach beyond the particulars of his existence.
On the other hand, Baslow acknowledges the fact that any knowledge of the world he possesses has been acquired by way of "the particulars of his existence"; he knows the world through his body; he comprehends its particulars by means of his unique passage through them.
He sings the body electric. As it were.
