Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2004 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Leonard is in Bakersfield visiting his family. Today I help a friend of a friend move, and possibly see Not A Genuine Black Man at The Marsh. Next week I leave for a two-week vacation in Tokyo. I'm reading Blameless in Abaddon by James Morrow. Sometimes I have to remind myself forcefully that my life is okay.
