The Once and Future Post

Way back in ye olde 1977, a book mobile swerved to avoid a dinosaur crossing the street and collided with a semi-truck full of camera equipment. Jack Shoegazer sprouted fully-formed from the resulting toxic inferno. Since then, he has been haunted by his dual nature of writer and photographer and is ruled by his misguided attempts to unite this dichotomy. He currently lives in Madison, Wisconsin with his fiancée, Jacquelyn and his son, Ethan, who believe Jack was born in Indiana to lower-middle class blue-collar laborers. Shhhh.

I'm now in Bangor, Maine and Durham, New Hampshire simultaneously.  The fiancée is now the wife and the son has graduated and is a cook in a diner.  I'm in an MFA program for fiction.  I'm going to make a concerted effort to post here more often.

Technically, I was born in Wisconsin, but moved to Indiana when I was a toddler and spent a big chunk of my childhood there. But that didn't fit into the above narrative, so I condensed :)

Dear Sir!
I randomly stumbled on your entry and I have to say I love your writing style. I took a gander at your profile and I noticed we share a few interests in common as well as a mutual friend. Would you care if I added you?

I stumbled across your journal through a bit of an indirect route: I noticed someone using an icon that I liked in a community post, so I went to their journal and looked at their icons, where I saw that the icon was credited to you (it was an "Emerald City" icon), then I came to your journal to ask if I could "borrow" it... and instead got completely distracted by reading your interesting journal entries. :)

So now I'd like to add you, if you don't mind.

Hi I saw your entry in selfportraits. I like the way you write and your life is pretty awesome. I'm a third year undergrad studying environmental chemistry, I mostly write about my life (which basically = school rn). I hope you don't mind that I added you! :)
