About

What's this all about? Perhaps "... to create moments of philosophy—that is, to pass from opinion to thought." Less mystically, it's my journal: thousands of essays, jokes, diary entries, poems, mini-lectures, whimsy, literary excerpts, and scraps of what-not. See Zhurnal and Zhurnaly for meta-commentary on the enterprise, and Treasure Knowledge for hints on how to pronounce журнал. The word zhurnaly simply means journals in Russian; zhurnal is the singular. There's plenty of room for more, so don't be shy about adding your own contributions within the bounds of good taste and civility—no advertisements, link spam, etc. are allowed. Contact me via z (at) his (dot) com or zhurnaly (at) gmail (dot) com to report bugs, suggest new material, and offer comments—or click an Edit or Comment link and post here directly. The ^zhurnal is dedicated to Bo Leuf who showed me this path. Thank you!
