Who Knows: Categorizing and Tagging Posts

It seems easy to categorize and tag posts, so mostly I do. But it’s not easy. And I should know it’s not, having spent some part of life in libraries and bookstores, and some of that time actually classifying books to be published so that they might be shelved more or less correctly in a bookstore.

When I can’t or don’t want to be bothered classifying posts, I simply leave the category and tag blank. But today, I add the new category and tag Who Knows. Because some of the time, maybe most of the time, I don’t.



This way
That way
I think I know better
But I easily forget
Lost in myself
So a story
A sentence
A phrase
A word
A sound
A silence
A laugh
A look at anything
Reminds me
Of nothing more
Than this or that
O this
O that
