Snapshots of Yesterday

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2015 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

And once I knew that Dreamwidth was about to donate $7,000 to complete my $15,000 matching challenge:

beginning to mail the envelope

dropping the envelope into the mailbox

just mailed the check!

And then I called Christie and Kirsten and Reid, with hope and joy.

I am so grateful to Dreamwidth, to the 90+ donors who gave in this campaign, to the Stumptown Syndicate, to the advantages I've had that have allowed me the extra income that I could funnel into this cause, and to all of us who are working on these shared goals. Thank you.
