Early in sophomore year of college 1984

Here I am. [Guy of the moment] isn't what I really want. [First long-term relationship] is. Gentle, beautiful, not too butch or too much of a partyer. He is very like me. And yet different enough to help me grow. I don't feel like I have to make plans about forever with him. We have some political differences. I think he thinks things through more than I, either that or he doesn't think them through in a different way.

For [First long-term relationship]:
? - Quarry Rock [The quarry at UCSC being the site of our first kiss while star-gazing. He's the one who taught me to recognize the constellation of Orion]
X - A Blue Feather
- - [crossed out] One of those tokens w/ "Dinah loves [First long-term relationship]" printed on it
X - A small plastic Godzilla or clydesdale
X - dry rose
? - a map of California with the route we took marked
[checkmark] - wood box from Cost Plus
X - something from Dickens (?) [This might refer to Dickens' Faire]
[X covered by a checkmark] - My poem
[checkmark] - + contents of envelopes

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
