I posted it at Canis Iratus instead because it turned out to be very long. Even after I chopped most of it out. If you read it, I hope you'll find it worth your time: Diary of a Blue State of Mind.
My intentions in writing it are explained there ("Adventures first," said the Gryphon in an impatient tone: "explanations take such dreadful time.") and I don't think I need to add any more. Not in a time when political differences are so sharp that serious people talk casually about civil war.
By the way, anybody who wants to come into my head-space and criticize the furniture is more than welcome.
