I LOVE YOU, MAN
I love this journal. I love this community. I love the people I've met here who live in Sweden, who live in the States, who live all over the freaking world. Who take the time to stop by and read my blabbiter lickum and my obiter dictum and my moments of actually putting words together well.

There are people ALL OVER who are linked to me, linked to each other, like daisies in a chain. I started writing here 3 years ago and I had no idea what I was getting into. If I HAD known, I would have started MUCH earlier. Every time I visit you people, you make me smile. You make me laugh. Some of you make me laugh so hard I have to put my head down on the desk to control the shaking.

I'd have to go back a ways to find out when I first had the idea of asking my readers to send me a page for a handmade book, a book of friendship. Since I put it out there I have received several pages and am stacking them together in a slowly growing pile on my art desk. Every time I get one, it's a thrill. You've sent me parts of yourself in the form of photography, collage, paintings, letters, recipes and poems. It's a pile of treasure.

Today I received a lovely letter and a page from someone who has never, that I can remember, commented on my journal. He found me via Meg at Blogcabin, whom I found via Chuck. Thanks, Michael! Each blog or journal that I read and become involved with leads me to others. And each of THEM is simultaneously leading and being led. A slowly growing web of bloggy filaments swathing the globe in friendship. Or a bunch of latent, frustrated stalkers, finally finding their destiny. Whichever. :D

I've often thought about sending you a friends page, but what in the world would I send?! I'm not so good at generating ideas. Maybe you should posts some photos of your book to give me some ideas.

I've promised that I won't be posting the pages, since there are some people who have asked me not to. The book isn't really meant for public viewing, it's a very selfish project just for me. :)

People have done pages of collage, little paintings, sent a photograph, doodled on a page...you don't have to be super artistic or anything, I'm just hoping that you will send something that you think represents YOU. :)

very cool~ and i know how you feel about lj.
i feel the same way. it's an amazing thing, it is,
this community of souls. i'm so lucky :)
and i see that you are, too!
*love*

Well I guess a friend is someone who's interest in you, you reciporcate and enjoy. A stalker is someone who you haven't yet befriended.

And they will, of course, be finally finding their "density"!!!

Yay! We're a bunch of latent, frustrated stalkers!

Har! I knew it! :D

It's hard to imagine the time before it isn't it.

I will do that page one day, I know it :)

Luv ya too, Liz!

I've been quite a posting slacker for several months, but I too LOVE this community. So glad I found it/ you all...

It sounds like your hope from yesterday was fulfilled today. I share your joy at having met YOU and others because of you. A lovely flower chain of kindness we're making all around the globe. How special is that?

I'm not a stalker, I just put my foot in my mouth more often than not. But I wanted to give something positive back to the blog community from which I benefit so much. Blue skies,
Mike

It's okay, we're all stalkers here. :D Thanks, again!

Hanging head in shame for STILL not having sent you a page. But it requires making art with my HANDS...something at which I am incredibly inept. But for you, dear Liz, I will be willing to make a total fool of myself...if only because I get SO MUCH from reading here. xoxo

I have every confidence that you will send me something that is wonderful!
