I'm still alive, just haven't had much to say here. I've had this journal since 2001. I've had a paid account for much of that time. I've penned out a third of my life on here, more or less. Posts both frivolous and profound, they all mean something to me.
I've enjoyed all the friends I've made on here, and keeping up with people's lives. I still review my friends list almost every day.
But times change. People change. We move on.

Now we have facebook, twitter, texting, and fifty other forms of social networking and keeping in touch. People move to the bigger and better. Little ol' LJ seems to have fallen by the wayside with my circle of friends.

I've always wrote for me. It was just nice to sometimes have an audience that responded. I'll still write. I have wonderful things going on in my life that I want to share, and remember.

Like the chorus.
The chorus thrills me. My chorus friends are beautiful people: professionals who share a passion for singing, performing, and enriching people's lives. Performing again has filled me with a purpose and drive. The way David conducts makes me want to be a better singer. Being on stage, being seen and enjoyed by an audience makes me want to be a better person. And I've set out to do just that. I've lost a good deal of weight the right way. I look and feel better. I carry myself with pride and a sense of purpose. I like who I'm becoming.

I like who I am.

I haven't always been able to say that.
