Very Well Then

Contradicting myself, always contradicting myself


About the Name

Maybe you already know this.  The title of this site is a snippet from a famous Walt Whitman verse.

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)

Song of Myself from Leaves of Grass

I have no special knowledge of Uncle Walt (as Robin Williams called him in Dead Poets’ Society).  But, coincidentally, I do share a birthday with him.  You Whitman-o-philes now know when to send me a birthday card.
