In a moment of clarity coupled with a longing for communication, I have decided to return to livejournal. My previous account was about 2 years ago and I'm not sure why I cancelled it. I've realized that having a place to broadcast (some of) my thoughts and ideas to the world is a good thing and will hopefully connect me with other people in the wild, blue ethernet yonder. I can't promise constant or even regular updates, but hopefully they won't be too sparse. I don't even know if anyone else will read this, but there is always the illusion that someone, somewhere will value my opinions and insights. Whether illusion or reality, welcome.
