Last month, I had no idea that I was celebrating the five-year anniversary of this blog.
But it’s true. The Looking Closer Journal made its debut on May 11, 2004. The first post was a welcome. The second noted that Tilda Swinton just might be cast as the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
We’ve come a long way, baby.
Thanks so much for making the journey with me. We’ve discussed so many great films, albums, and stories, and I’ve enjoyed your company as dreams like Through a Screen Darkly and Auralia’s Colors and Cyndere’s Midnight came true.
It’s hard to imagine what the next five years might hold. Well, besides the last two chapters of The Auralia Thread: Raven’s Ladder and the as-yet-untitled closing chapter.
I hope you’ll hang around.
