it's been a while, eh? i hope you are all well. life has changed for me so thoroughly and dramatically that it's hard to recognize the "me" that was here so frequently those few years ago. mostly, i'm just saying hello and that i'm alive. i wonder..... once... a few years ago... i got a series of messages that were very cryptic and moving. i hope that the person whom sent those to me will find this message and know that i'm alive and doing the best that i can with the life that i have.
