(I'm posting this here publicly, in case you don't already have access to my private posts via another Dreamwidth account, and I am carefully avoiding mentioning your user name and the topics you wrote to me about, since I did not want to out you without your permission.)

Thank you very much for your kindly worded private messages to me over the past 24 hours. I don't know if you and I already know each other from elsewhere, and when I try to respond to your messages I get a 404 from Dreamwidth.

But I wanted to be sure to let you know how much I appreciated you taking the time and care to create a Dreamwidth account so you could write to me about this important topic and clear up my misconceptions.

After I read your messages, I went back and re-read some of my previous public posts, together with my DW profile — which was two years out of date. I have edited my profile to reflect some changes in my life and I changed the name of one of my interests in view of what you said at the end of your most recent private message to me.

In the course of going through these posts, I found a post that could be the one you referred to in your private messages. It's several years old and I admit I cringed a bit when re-reading it, given its “in universe” tone —
the expectation that the reader lives in the “universe” of my personal mythology, unconsciously misrepresenting it as objective rather than subjective — and because of other potentially problematic things I wrote in it. Clearly, for reasons additional to the concerns you raised in your message to me, it is long past time for me to make a new post to address these issues and reflect the changes in my understanding in the seven years since I wrote the original post. I hope to be able to make this new post soon, when I am feeling better physically — the past two weeks have been especially difficult for complex reasons involving (among other things) my health. But I want you to know that I am listening and that I hope to do better going forward.

It was not me... But I wanted to come and offer you a hug, just because.

Also, I just read your updated profile, and we learned things about you we didn't know, which is always really cool. Would you please pass on a hello to Ben for us? Also, since we don't use this journal much these days and can never remember if you're added, if you're not added on [personal profile] mirrorofsmoke would you mind?
