i took it all down because of a kneejerk reaction. i did it because it was a shortcut to knowing me that i didn't want someone to take. but now i find i don't really mind if she read it, just that i don't understand her response. she is not easy to fathom, but i think i must be.
i find myself assuming she took a thread from it and picked me immediately, derived my personality instantly, saw through it, found me a fraud. but maybe she didn't. i can't ask, and i won't know what she found. most likely, a momentary diversion. nothing of note.
but, reading back, i like it. i am proud...
you can find me at andafterwards.blogspot.com - invite only, please ask if you want to have a look (i may never get further than a beginning entry).
i am thinking, i should write again -- not here, because -
although her interest has undoubtably waned - there might be others. but
things are fraught and strange - not always, but some days --
and it might help.
so, i have a fairly good idea who reads this - not many people at all, certainly not these days. the problem is, people i know find it, and there's no way to tell whether they are crying with laughter...and that feels pretty weird.
this all seems so long ago and far away anyway - over two years since i wrote in it seriously. thank you to everybody who has been so nice to me, stay in touch - it just seems like a good idea to clean all of this up. i plan to sit down at the weekend and save the entries somewhere that's not on the interwebs....
putting this sort of thing in the public domain...
