On the theatre thing, the only thing wrong about regularly seeing avant-garde showws like this is that it makes things like Annie or similar, when you see them, look slightly ridiculous. We were commenting too when we left the theatre thet we couldn't even BEGIN to explain what we'd just seen to our friends in Nanookville, because these shows are so foreign to the rural experince.
As for LJ, I hate to say it but it feels like it's in a bit of a downward spiral. What is keeping it together is the connections people have made here. The content, I think isn't what it once was, though.
GREAT photo and the trailer is awesome! Reminds me of Butoh dance performances. Good to hear that you are busy and happy. As far as Lj goes..........at least in my experience the "attraction" of the community isn´t about excitement, inspiration and creativity, but about "coming home" and meeting old friends. In the end - at least for me- that´s worth more than anything else.
That is so good to hear. I agree it doesn't really matter if LJ is sometimes a bit lacking in excitement, because that's not really what we're here for. Thank you!
I understand how life changes and we just have to follow our interests.
There is a certain sort of quiet calm I find in LJ. I would miss you and your photos were you to stop entirely.
Thanks Brenda. I think you and me are good for each other, so let's not give that up.
I took a 6 month leave... but came back. LJ still has my heart.... I love the people I have met here
Thats really interesting to hear. LiveJournal may drag at timess, but its essentially all about the poeople, and that's hard to give up.
I think I post less and less on lj because I'm so busy just living now. I enjoy reading lj every day and I do enjoy the photographs, but I find myself starting a post and then getting interrupted to do something. Perhaps it's for the best as I want to live myself more, rather than vicariously.
I don't tweet, but I do keep a FB account and that is where I spend a bit more of my internet time. I have friends on there with whom I went to school in Egypt and Singapore, my church friends, my friends that have drifted away IRL and I can keep tabs on my people there.
FB doesn't compare to lj at all but I admit I like both. I know people who are fiercely against it, but it is what it is.
I would miss your photography and your banter if you went away entirely. You have been such a huge influence on my life. I'm glad I have lj to thank for that.
I guess each social networking site has it pluses and minuses; one thing I've found is that I can only concentrate on a few at a time, which is why I don't do Facebook. I have become quite impressed by Twitter belkive it or not, after thinking for months it was idiotic.
But no worries, I will be on here, but probably not so often.
aw... I will miss you around here. I like the "dull" updates with the day to day stuff most!
If you want dull, I deliver in spades
Good comments about change. I like them.
As for PositiveLite, I am on Fb but have resisted going down that path, although my colleague does use it. But it's Twitter thats been a revelation, both for promoting our posts/site, and also for a continuous stream of leads on what's happening elsehere. I'm just astonished how good it is for that.
Thanks for the suggestion about buttons: why we dont have thpse I dont know. I'll get those added.
Btw, we talked a while back about you being a great candiate for blogging on the site. You have such a full nad inetstuing life,m and you write well. If ever that outlet becomes something you'd like to do, muffinman, let me know.

Of course I was talking about you - not!
That show looks amazing...the curse of being poor, you never get to see the shows you really want to, oh well.
You know one of these days we are going to have to get together for supper or drinks of something. I've read your journal for years and I want to put a person to these posts.
Thanks muddster, and it will happen. I'm in Toronto much of next week. Think about having a bite to eat Thursday evening, my treat?
So relieved you are not leaving LJ!
Boring? At times, I like boring--means no drama. No drama is good!
Not exciting? God God man! I mean, I live in Ottawa! What could be more exciting than that?!?!?!
Yeah, OK, I'll concede the point on that one.... :P
But you'll be missed. You have definitely NOT been unexciting to chat with these past few years. And next time you're up this way - well, the standing Indian lunch invitiation is always there.
Thanks, I will be around - even posted a second entry today. And there is a chance I MAY get to Ottawa this summer - it's a funding thing - and if so, I'll let you know.
I guess I'll have to follow you wherever you're headed, as I would miss you terribly. You're spending more time in one of my favorite cities; Meirion is obviously energized by his job and elected office ... So, what do I need to do to be part of your daily life?
I'm hoping that I'm not one of the less exciting personas on LJ. I really do try ...
Just as video killed the radio star, Facebook has killed my journaling. I spend hours on there, and in of all things, an email group where there are 3 other women and myself. I'm always glad to see post from you and your photos, whenever they appear.
All I can say is WOW! Thanks for the link. I've tweeted it.
