I opened this journal many months ago, then felt the onrush of... nothing. I dunno, blogging is not my medium, yet so many of my old friends have wandered to this place, so "hello"!
Ah yes, several adventures have transpired since I called myself 'Draco'. I still respond to that fine name, and among those whom I've known for more than a decade, I'll keep that name, but I also respond to 'Elimloth'. More about that one later.

welcome (back!) dear. blogging can be a good way of staying in touch with people - their news and yours - good for writing ou thoughts, good for passsing on neat things to your community. it's not Real Life, nor does it play one on the net, but it can be real communication, at least once in a while. hugs!
I hope you'll find LJ as congenial as I have. It reminds me, in some ways, of the old Nomads of the 'Net space; a little more public, but still intimate, especially when you make good use of "friends" filters. To my surprise (because I was skeptical when I first came on board, too) LJ combines the best features of private e-mail and Usenet, without the growing ... crowdedness ... of the latter.
One good way to track down old friends - and find fascinating new ones - is to rummage through the friends lists of those you *do* track down. It can be a bit tricky to sort out who's who - changing usernames and all - but I've enjoyed many "oh, it's *you!!!" moments since joining LJ.
