These pages are five years old. Encompassed here are the journalings of five years of my life, and what a journey it has been. I say it every year, but the experience of writing in these pages is not at all what I thought it would have been when I posted my first, tentative words. The focus of what has been written here as changed as I have gone on, ebbing and flowing from writing to life, to whimsy, to photography. Now, looking back, I feel that it is chronicling, in a way that I scarcely would have imagined, my life in those five years.
