I'm sorry to report that one of my favorite blogs has gone dark. Crasses et voluptés went under. I miss it a lot already.
Pat Caza is a brilliant writer who offered up hunks of text the way a butcher slaps down hunks of fine, juicy steaks -- with abandon, with richness, with passion, and with the inside understanding that something there is going to nourish you right down to the toes.
Plus it was a great curatorial site, reminding you of the power of the blues and the icons that rule over our shabby little gutter.
I salute your work. I wish I'd taken the time to honor it more than with a mention on my blog roll.
I hope Caza will be back, too.
