About This Site

The Living Place is made with love in Charlottesville, Virginia. This is the home of writing by William Proffitt.

The Web

The Living Place is published as a website so that nearly anyone can reach it. The web is borderline miraculous for this sort of thing.

Your smartphone or tablet can display The Living Place just as well as your computer can. Thanks to the magic of responsive web design, the typography scales down along with the width of your browser.


Code for The Living Place, including the design and underlying platform, was written from scratch by William Proffitt.


William Proffitt bears the fun nickname of Doogie and enjoys going on walks in the morning.
