Recently Ox Herding hit the six-year mark but, given the inconstant evolution of the site, I'm not throwing a party or anything. Ox Herding has changed quite a bit over the years, mirroring in some ways the changes in my own life. That's normal, right?
One thing hasn't changed, though - the interest, encouragement, and support of readers from around the world. Please accept my sincere appreciation. You keep Ox Herding alive!
On past anniversaries, I reposted articles from the preceding year that captured the spirit of the blog. But the site's been pretty quiet for the last twelve months so I've dipped into archives from previous years and rediscovered a few old favorites. I hope you'll enjoy them.
