I beg forgiveness for writing in rhyming couplets. I didn’t want to. Honest.

Relaunch!

Machines of Loving Grace has been relaunched, with a whole new look, new photos and new content! My lack of HTML skillz still shows, and there are some gaps which I hope to fill soon, but I couldn’t keep the new site to myself any longer.
