happy 20 years, anonymousblack.

that's journal no. 2 (1997-2000) as the backdrop, described my last year at iowa as my "satisfactorily anonymous black journal." i don't generally like elaborate (really any) journal embellishments. it was technically the first journal i finished front-to-back. the key isn't the one i started wearing around my 15th birthday as it was stolen my first year of college. that key was from one of my maternal grandmother's collections, and fortunately i have others. ben gave me this doppelganger shortly after i moved to baltimore, symbols that combine for me in an important way here. the chain i've had since i was a kid and i'm pretty sure i used it for my first key back when. the red thread is a long term magic working related to my writing.
the meteorite is from my collection of trauma glass. i bought it from the bookshop a million years ago.
