Leave me a comment and I will reply with why I like you. If I feel I don't know you well enough for that, I'll either make something up or tell you why I like your LiveJournal. You must pay for the privilege by posting a message like this one on your LiveJournal.

I'm so glad to be getting to know you here. I am delighted to have an LJ friend who lives in the Deep South. I like your writing very much and look forward to reading a whole lot more.

For some reason I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around those instructions. They seem inordinately complicated to me.

Me too. I think the last eight years made me stupid.

ok.

I like your sincerity. I like the fact that you pick out thoughtful gifts that keep on giving. I like your kindness towards others. I like the way you treat my daughter. I like your smile. I like how hard you think about relationships. I like how lightly you take what's hard.

I like your LiveJournal.

No chain posts. No chain posts.

I like the fact that you spent years resisting The Grill, yet chose it for our final rendevous. I like your ability to make obscure psychoanalytic puns with me in real time. I like your raging against the machine. I like the way you judge drummers during a concert. I like the fact that you were always generous with your guests (or me, at least). I like the fact that you would pick me up all sorts of places -- Phoenix! -- without much hope of reward. I liked having you as a TA immensely. I like your macabre self-regard. I like your teeth.

Your blog is the only one I am aware of that makes me regret the fact that I am childless.

Wow! That's nice to hear. I love yours because it talks about all kinds of music, including "classical," because you talk about the tedium of work, and because I feel smarter when I see your LJ icons, which are truly top-notch. Plus, I sate my Pacific NW longings.

I miss you! I miss your honesty, the ability to lucidly size up a situation and still feel your way towards an idealistic end. That is, I liked that trait in your LJ. I liked seeing you at shows, too. I liked the fact that you knew stuff about me and I knew stuff about you but we both understood to maintain the boundaries that keep LJ a safe space. I want you to write more!

I'm so glad you've found a place where you are happy and can fully realize your talents. You know that some of the things you've said to me over the past year have meant a great deal. That was a difficult semester for me, when you were in my class, and looking out to see you engaged in the material, but not trying too hard to impress, made it easier. I like the way that you could tell what you wanted and knew that you had to move to get it. I am sure that you will be better off, in the end, or having made the leap.

I love your colorful letters, of course. I loved playing Scrabulous with you. I am ever so grateful to your for persuading me to join Facebook, which has now brought me back in contact with people who matter a lot to me. What I like about you most, though is the boundless courage and optimism you demonstrate in keeping yourself out here in the world, despite pain and frustration that would have led most people to give up. When I'm having a bad day, which is often at present, just seeing one of your entries or comments makes me feel better. You give me hope. Plus, you're a fine writer and very funny!

She

      Photobucket

You don't know me too well; we've only just met. I don't want to hear about my journal too much. Make something up: how would She answer for instance... truthfully.

Re: She

I've been pondering this image for a while. It unsettles me greatly. But I can't get it out of my head. I guess, in a roundabout way, that makes her a good stand-in for you, because your entries have a way of sticking with me, though less troublingly, that others do not. I'm so glad to have you in my circle of correspondents. You have done some wonderful things. As for "she," I keep thinking of a life gone awry, possibilities unrealized, fears confirmed. I hope she changes aspect in the new year.

What if you don't have a LiveJournal? Will Facebook do? LB

I'm doing it! I like the fact that when I'm with you I feel like our minds are working better than they were before our meeting and will be after it. It's like the knob gets turned higher. I like your sense of humor. I like how hard you think about life. I like that you read so widely and so well. I like those moments of self-awareness in which you integrate your past with your present. I like your strength. I like your cooking. I like so much about you that it would be impossible to finish this list in a timely fashion.

hi
cbertsch From: cbertsch Date: November 9th, 2008 04:36 pm (UTC) (LINK TO SPECIFIC ENTRY)
I like the fierceness of your convictions, the way you speak out even when it's hard. I like the fact that you are doing what you wanted to do, years ago, in being a mother and doing it, from what I can tell, very well. I like your powers of forgiveness. I like the way you bite off darkly ironic statements, turning the corner of your mouth down. I like your refusal, above else, to forget who you were, who you are, and who you want to be.

You don't know me at all, really. I've commented a few times, you've commented a few times. But I read your journal all the time and I think you're one of the smartest men I've never met.
cbertsch From: cbertsch Date: November 9th, 2008 04:39 pm (UTC) (LINK TO SPECIFIC ENTRY)
That's so nice to hear!

You haven't posted much, but I've been very impressed with the expressiveness of what you have put out for folks to see on LJ. Some of your posts have moved me very deeply. I get the sense that you are sensitive, in the best possible way, to the feelings of others and yourself. And I hope to hear from you more and, with luck, more often.
