well, that went quickly, for a decade and a half.

(or maybe not so much.)

Happy LJ-versary, a day late! I'll hit 15 years on Nov. 4 or thereabouts. It's funny how some things totally change while others stay just the same. I often look back and realize I've had the same damn realizations over and over, new every time. ;)

thank you!

crimson_vita and me talked about that during one of my more recent visits home (i think early 2012? we were in the woods and there was snow.) that feeling of exclamation points as you document an epiphany and then you find it written out years earlier and only kind of remember doing it. like cv said, though, it really is better to develop some consistency in your documentation habits. otherwise it's not just 20 years of paper journals you've got to search through, but paper journals, brainstorming books, composition notebooks, something you won't dignify with a fancier name than "slop notebook..."

Oh yeah. I have several beautiful, expensive journals on my shelves -- bought probably when they went on sale, with artful covers and high-quality paper -- and I've been too afraid to write in them. Instead, I have umpteen filled and not-yet-filled 99-cent marble-back books from the drug store. No fear, you just write!

oh, yeah. the blank journal shelf. i've worked at a few bookstores so i've amassed quite an inventory. recently, i had a sit down with myself and was like, judy.... judy judy judy. stop it. stop it with the you-aren't-good-enough-to-use-the-fancy-ones. start using the fancy ones. so it's slowly happening but it's happening. though all the daily practice stuff has been in a composition notebook. i sort of want the novelty of one of those filled completely, not a line blank, inside the first half of the year. getting there.

Happy 15th. Strange to think I've been reading your journal for a large part of those years. I think I told you this years ago, and not since, so I'll say it again. I love reading what you write. I think you have a real talent. You're one of the few people on LJ whose journal I read every entry all the way through. That's the greatest LJ compliment I can give. :)

Here's to another 15 years.

thank you so much, mike. i've been uncharacteristically pushing on the whole publication deal, too, so maybe you'll eventually get to read a heft of content that's not lj bound.

here's to another 15 for lj, too. ♥
