I don't even remember posting here. You know? and I think I've missed out on a lot.

There used to be this thing called "real life" where I had friends who called on the phone, and wrote letters, and sent long emails.

And there was LJ, where I found community sometimes, and people awake in the middle of the night. Where I met amazing folks like [livejournal.com profile] annablume and [livejournal.com profile] sequoianne and [livejournal.com profile] csecooney and [livejournal.com profile] sdn and [livejournal.com profile] wiredferret and [livejournal.com profile] ottermoo and [livejournal.com profile] bellaunbound and so many, many others. Where I kept in touch with friends from college and from my still-kicking mailing list...

And then facebook happened, and slowly, real life and online life merged into one soup, and I can't find myself in either any more.

Facebook has been useful to me in many ways, but I find myself at even more of a loss for words than ever before. I have missed the long-form entries, the detail, the secrets. And I so miss finding letters in my mailbox, and talking on the phone for hours, not that I can even make a phone call without A wanting to talk and needing things.

Can you believe he's 5, and in kindergarten? IMG_3079


So, where does all this lead us? I've got deep questions about life and faith and work, and this is where they most likely should go.  I tried starting a professional blog, but honestly, I don't like it.  I've written some okay things for it, but I hate it being public, and it's just too stilted...

Want to bring LJ back?  Maybe we can stage some kind of revolution?
