Well, it was June 2009, when my son Dylan was born, that I last posted to this journal. It has been a long, strange, and wonderful journey since then, and despite plenty of challenges, life is pretty damn good.

I may not ever be nearly as...hmm, prolific as I once was here, but I am feeling more writerly of late, and this journal always was a good place to put musings, thoughts, and work-in-progress, and having been an occasional Facebook resident over the past few years, LJ still seems a much better place to put actual substantive stuff, beyond the casual "Likes" and drive-by witticisms that make up most of the content (well, my content, anyway) there.

So to friends and old comrades here, hail and well met, and good to see ya again.

Ah, yes, the return to a 'new normal' after the arrival of new ones. I remember well the feeling of suddenly getting a whole night's sleep, several nights in a row. That kid is having his Jack Benny birthday this year, but some things are indelible. Now, if I could just remember where I'm supposed to be tomorrow ...

Welcome back!

Thank goodness. Is everyone in your family doing well? I've thought of you guys often in your absence.

Hey there! Yes, we're all well, though the house is getting over a bout of plague (both respiratory bug and stomach virus), but all are on the road to recovery... How are you doing (other than selling work to Mother Jones? Wow!)

Oh, I wish I could say that I sold the piece; I wound up doing it pro bono to gain some exposure for what I'm working on, which is just fine. But thank you. :)

We're doing well -- also getting over a plague (it must be winter!). Laurel is nearly two, trying to talk in sentences, learning the alphabet, and learning how to have tantrums. :)

How nice to see a long-time friend and skilled writer (that would be you) return to LJ. It has been waaaaay too long since I saw you in person, but I'll glad read you here in the interim... Love to you and all your kin, Sylvan

Hey Chelidon,
I've re-jumped into LJ for much the same reason. FB is a fun tool for internet chit-chat, but not a good medium for real conversation, or thoughtful stories.

I look forward to reading what you have to write,
Anatieda
