According to tradition, this is my leather anniversary. Who's spanking me first? ;-)
Seriously, though, I want to thank my LJ friends, both people I've met in person and others who I've only rubbed electronic elbows with. I realize that journals are usually private things; sharing my life with you and getting a glimpse at yours is what always brings me back here. I believe it always will.
Know that I appreciate you more than I can ever give voice to. I could never assemble a group of friends this eclectic in any geographic region. Having this space makes it possible. May we all have a long time to grow and continue to learn about each other.
