My Gather site

I've decided to revive my Gather site which never really got off the ground. There are so many awesome new sites out there that I feel like are more modern in their look and feel than Livejournal, like Gather and Multiply. I like the concept of writing articles. I think it would be good writing practice, and a good incentive to develop new theories and interests.

I haven't found any writers or categories I really want to follow yet, unfortunately. They have so much great technology and means of communicating articles of interest to you, unlike Livejournal. I have been feeling lately the need for new inspiration and new mediums, and this is a great new thing to play with, at least.

Burke Cemetery

This cemetery was near Waterside. We wandered there after dinner. The first, and oldest, grave, mentioned in the historical marker.

Studying with Dolls

In the afternoons, I usually take my laptop or a book to the bed and study, and a doll for company. Gertrude is sitting on my bed desk. I got her in 2015 from the Korean doll company Dollmore. She's a "Flocke" sculpt. Willow is sitting with my headphones. She's made by the Chinese company Angel of Dream. I got her in 2013. She's a "Qing" sculpt.
Two older entries I edited tonight re-posted today's date. However, the original month/year is still visible in the permalink. Looking back on the past often makes me cringe, especially when I remember my own behavior. However, re-reading these entries makes me feel the past is accessible in the sense that I am still holding on to many of the same dreams and desires. This week, for comps, I read two early gothics, James Hogg's The Private Memoir and Confessions of a Justified Sinner , and Charles Brockden Brown's Edgar Huntly; or, a Sleep-Walker , which were very much along the lines of the books that absorbed me from 2005-2007, most of which I read on my Treo from Project Gutenberg. Looking back upon my interests and desires of that time sustains me now, when I have to tap into my reserves every day to keep reading.
