new beginnings - Ambar

This is a good phrase and an accurate one, and indeed, one of the reasons your journal is interesting. I'm learning more about you via Livejournal than I have in 10 years of on & off contact. Which is not so surprising, given the nature of muds and the nature of journals.
Reading your journal frequently makes me wish I was brave enough to be violently personal in my own. Perhaps eventually.

Re: violently personal
Oh, that's easy, luv. I dunno how Ambar gets along with her aggressively intimate exhibitionism, but I do it by being so entirely self-involved that I can forget, just for the moment of writing the entry, that what I am saying might be, ah, inflating my personal space to include most of the world (perhaps against the wishes of the inhabitants thereof) , and that there might be reprecussions (like general shunning, or lynch mobs) to what I am saying. Then I post it before I can wake up.
Ah, that warm enveloping introspection and verbalization, followed with the sudden cold splash as the realization of irrevocability brings you back...it's purifying, is what it is.
Why do I feel like I'm trying to corrupt someone?
--Scott, who could use a good purifying right now
