Redaction redux

A word of explanation. I took down all post, going back six years, because I was just sick of them. This all has to do with me and not the actions or comments of anyone else.

I did some more exploring of the privacy options available on Live Journal. I like them. I think I can create something there that will allow me to journal they way I want to: Write what I need to write to fill my own needs, then pick and choose who gets to see it.

I am currently in the process of reviewing, redacting, and re-posting. I am starting at the beginning (2004) and working forward. This is a useful exercise, as it gives me a chance to review the last few years and see where my life has (or hasn't) gone.

Clearing the decks and starting over.

Six years of this bullshit is entirely enough.

Under wraps

I just had a really good journal writing session. It was nice to put down a line of thought that has been rolling around my head for nearly 10 years. Then I looked at the results and said, "There is no way in hell I can publish THAT."


Have to come up with something else later today.

Dead man's food

I have been eating a dead man's food the last few days. On September 18, 2009 a man was found dead on a Trax train in Salt Lake City.

Theron Read was roommate of a friend of mine. In the days, weeks, and months following his death, my friend was forced to deal with the property left behind by the dearly departed. Theron's family was little help. The roommate was left with the task of placing much of Theron's worldly possessions. So.....making a long story short, I was presented with a small box of food. "Do you want this?", I was asked. "Well......sure. Why not.", I answered.

So, for a few recent evenings, and for the last two days at work, I have been eating a dead man's food.
