might not be contributing new content to the thread as much as i like while negotiating my current depression, but i'm doing my best to maintain a relationship with it.

i started (casually) transcribing my long-hand journals by way of 750words.com in 2014 (the 20th anniversary of the first book in the numbered thread). in part, i was tired of never being able to find an entry i was thinking of; the hope was that i'd make my entire archive key-word searchable and maybe reunite with some unrealized ideas i might now be ready to host. page count is for the file in ms word, not the original book. when i figure out how to work excel enough to make this an official database, i might go back and figure out how many pages are in each original book (journals 7-9 were huge, i wish i could find more of them) but i think, for now, this is obsessive enough for my records. of interest: icon from this entry scanned from journal 2.
