The only downside I can see to lj is the (largely) one-way communication involved: I write stuff, you folks respond or don't. I was trying to decide how to remedy this, y'see....
Howzabout (if anybody cares) posting questions, comments, requests and the like here? (or, in the case of sal, that promised family vacations piece?). Please keep it more or less friendly (and I'm sorta trying to get away from political stuff for the nonce); OTOH, I'd be particularly delighted to get questions I can answer (re: Magick, writing, whatever else).
If we get a few responses, I'll reply to 'em here. If we get a lotta responses, I'll start threads for 'em as needed. If nobody gives a rat's patootie, it's back to AJ soliloquizing.

(who hopes some folks will ask magical-type questions, given he's saved up decades of answers...oh, and this is open to anyone wants to be reasonably pleasant, btw.)
