A few days back, I received an e-mail out of the blue from Delirium... aka Rainy. (But you can just call her goddess... or diva... or whatever she lets you call her...!)

Delirium is a great writer and is usually quite glittery and sparkly...! We met online ages and ages ago... and despite living in the same general area, we've only met a few times... (Without meeting her previously, I somehow convinced her to leave work early and go off with me to see the Bauhaus reunion tour. Still not quite sure how I did that, but hey... I persuaded her to take two years of old journal entries and import them into Live Journal... and I noticed she even got a membership! I didn't expect that! if I can somehow get her to do all that, going to see Bauhaus is kinda small potatoes !)

...well, the point is, I have been trying to help her today with getting LJ embedded in her website, which isn't easy, since she is an HTML newbie... but she did it! Which means that you can read her here at LJ or at her website... she is a very cool person and a lovely poet... feel free to bombard her journal with flowers, voodoo dolls, cute little stars, and other things that shimmer in the night...

When I was younger...

I always wanted to find a big old victorian house somewhere and live there, surrounded with all of my friends... I guess in a way I still want that, though I can see more of the pitfalls involved in such a situation. Still, LJ is a good substitute, at times. Anyone want to form a commune?!

Actually, on a related note, I would like to get a camp together for Burning Man for next year... and I was thinking how cool it would be to have a LiveJournal camp there. It would make for an interesting group of people... !

Fresh, new friends...!

I checked out my profile for the first time in awhile and found that there are all sorts of new people who are viewing my journal now! There's army_of_me and greendragon and kundalinidreams (All aboard the Express Kundalini! Woowoo!!!) and languagehammer and orien and twinstar and whisperingwinds... um... wow. All these names... I feel like Miss Nancy from Romper Room... where's my friggin' Magic Mirror?!?! I guess I have a good excuse to read more journals!

So, yes... I do kinda like it when people put me on their friend list...!

...but should I? Is all of this about me, about you, or about us?!?

Just how nebulous are the boundaries between people?
If I share what I love with you, and if you love it too...
does that mean that there is a piece of me inside you?
Does that imply a choice on your part to make a piece of me a piece of you? Or are you following a program based on a series of synaptic connections... did you ever really have a choice at all?
Perhaps the deck was stacked... the card was forced...
Is THIS your card?!

Do we have a relationship, or what?!?! ;)
