Road Trip of the Mind, Heart, and Body

What was my dream before I was born, the one that made me come here? I wish I fully remembered, but it was so very long ago. Like the panic of every Sunday evening after another wasted weekend, I am suddenly petrified of dying and crossing over with the realization that I have wasted my life. I think I am a fly kept within the bounds of a self-made jar; now the lid is open, but so far I am too afraid to fly out. Let me reach out and begin to illuminate a path into this apparent unknown.

update June 3, 2018: Sorry, there was a problem when updating the site to SSL and posting was affected for most users (annoyingly, not the one I use to test things though). Email andrew@diaryland.com with any remaining bugs that stop you from posting. (No need to tell me about archiving problems, etc, I'm working on those).

More fixes soon.
