wo hundred posts.
The first was March 12, 2002. That’s 2,414 days ago. 6 years, 7 months, 8 days.
Not a great average, every 12 days, but there were times I lost my way and went months (194 days, over six months, one time) without posting.
My life isn’t remotely what it was when I started. Much gain, some loss.
And lots and lots of music.

That accent/apostrophe broke the post when I imported all this from the old database, and I’m really hoping I have a copy of the original somewhere.—jdc 2012-03-05
