I keep stopping in here hoping to find some remnant of what I remember this place being. Seems like it is gone. Bummer.

radiofrank:

Yes, this place is certainly very different than it once was...but it also seems (to me, at least) as though certain things are headed back to what we knew, especially in terms of some of the functions of the site.  Perhaps the community will follow.   And to answer your comment, it is a good thing - and it keeps me out of trouble, haha.  :)

Some days I feel like I have seen and done too much. It makes me want to go back to Japan. Where I can surround myself with other people looking to ease their minds and soothe their souls. A paradoxical group of people seeking quiet and solitude while living in a communal environment. Practicing what looks like violence but feels like meditation. It was comforting...

Sometimes, the price of wisdom is rather high. I suppose not as high as ignoring it, however. In any event, glad you're around this place for a bit. :)

So I suppose it is time to put up a real journal entry. Lots of things have happened since I was last here. I've moved 3 times. First back to Illinois to help out when the family farm was in trouble. Then back to St. Louis for a while. Trying to escape from some of my past and hoping to rediscover other parts of...

Not one carriage return or blessed line feed:/He who designed comments by rights, should bleed!

Nice to see you around these parts again.  I agree with the "style over substance" comment, although I find that it is growing on me (with a few exceptions).

I just got back in to town. It's cold & there is snow and ice everywhere. The weather in both Illinois and Missouri was much nicer. And it was good to see old friends and family again. But it's clear to me those places are no longer home. I never thought I would grow to love this place but I do. After 20 years...

Happy Thanksgiving
Hope yours was as good as mine
But, perhaps, warmer.
grayness:

We're in the same boat, on that. smile

And mine was just cool, so that's probably warmer. wink

toothpickmoe:

Oh yes. The proliferation of toe/foot ones recently has been...interesting.

And I think I fulfilled your wishes perfectly.

I just got home from one of the best nights of my life. I'd resigned myself to treating my birthday as just another day. In my family birthday celebrations are only for children and are pretty tame affairs. The only people who ever made a big deal out of my birthday was Roy (some of you may remember the friendship I ruined by falling...

That sounds like a wonderful birthday party - and from the sounds of it, it is one that you certainly deserved! smile

It's nice when surprises work out.

I really should be making better use of this. I have fond memories of this place and the welcome distraction it brought. There just doesn't seem to be much time for this kind of thing anymore. Funny how everyone always talks about how free of responsibilities I am, but I'm the busiest person I know. Good busy though. I'm as close to...

Thanks.

I'm glad to read that you're doing well. smile

tarqu1n:

Indeed. It's a nice place to visit and catch up with people you've mostly never met wink

Peace at 33 sounds good. Lots of time to read books.

Hmmm, even I'm not egotistical enough to believe that I have yet another secret mysterious benefactor. Still, it is good to be back. So thanks, SG.

Anybody still here that I actually know?

I got the same welcome back too. A clever marketing ploy, no?

Last night some drunken frat boys were serenading me outside my bedroom window. I can't decide if they were cute or obnoxious. They were pretty loud and more enthusiastic than talented. It was hard to tell what they were actually singing. I'm not sure where they came from but I assume it has something to do with the workouts I've been doing...

Nobody has ever serenaded me. frown

Of course if I were as beautiful as you I suppose it might happen. No wonder everyone falls in love with you.

Sorry, that sounds bitter doesn't it? I'm in one of those moods.

Are you coming back? Or are you done?

strega:

Happy Belated Birthday. Hope you had a great day.
