The Name

Like Divinest Sense, this domain name was also inspired by an Emily Dickinson poem, which begins:

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without words
And never stops at all.

Thus, if Hope is the “thing with feathers”, then the opposite of hope would be the thing Without Feathers—an appropriate name for the personal site of a cynic like myself.
