It was three years ago today that I made my first entry in this journal. This corner of cyberspace has become an important part of my life. To be more specific, it has become an important expansion of my life. This space has been various things at various times for me – a place of play, of pondering, of entertaining, of sharing, of self-analysis, of self-discovery. Looking back on the various entries and writing styles I have employed, I find that it offers a series of snapshots on where my head has been at over this planet’s last three trips around the sun. I thank all of you who have either been along for the ride, or who have popped in for the odd visit. And thanks, as always, to meryddian, who first commended LJ to my attention – a simple enough act on her part, but one which has paid unexpected dividends to yours truly!
