Hard to believe it's been a full year since I started this blog. The exact anniversary passed without note - I was nodding off to sleep last night and it just occurred to me, hey, it's been a year and a few days now since things happened.
A year ago, my boyfriend of three-plus years mistook me for somebody I am most definitely not. I think if I were ever to post a near-naked picture of myself on the internet, I would own up to it and not crop the photo at the neck. But the associated personal ad was way out. That would be counting to five with holy hand grenades.
This incident and its aftermath resulted in the cutting-off of my daily communication fix. Suddenly I was adrift with no soulmate to talk to every day. Thus the blog. I can talk talk talk talk talk, and not expect the person I'm talking to to talk back right away. In the past year I've discovered the whole world of blogging. It's not just an online diary, though there are many blogs treated that way. There are serious things and funny things and gorgeous photography and strange things and I could spend the day hopping from site to site like visiting friends. And some of you have become my friends, and I'm very happy about that.
