Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

A lonely woman in Florida drinks herself to death and leaves behind only bits and scraps of woe:
There were three yellow Post-its on the fridge. One said: “By myself, with myself.” Another said: “Broke and alone.” And the third said: “Higher purpose?”

On the dining room table was the start of a personal ad she had written in a lined notepad: “Single and ready to experience…”

She stopped before she figured out what she was ready to experience. On the next page, she had written: “Can’t. I’m not willing at this time.”

Hatchjaw had this to say (09/22/2003 14:54:28):
Came the last night of sadness

And it was clear she couldn't go on

Then the door was open and the wind appeared

The candles blew then disappeared

The curtains flew then he appeared

Saying don't be afraid

Come on baby

And she had no fear

And she ran to him

Then they started to fly

They looked backward and said goodbye

She had become like they are

Your thoughts?
