So, about 4 years ago, almost to the day, I posted this meme of anonymous comments.
I got this one, and it's cheered me, and frustrated me, ever since --
A voice from the wilds.

I have always been amazed at your ability to be so very easy-going and funny, and simultaneously, so very magically powerful. We have known each other for a long time, and you have always been very kind and tender toward me, and I have always been enamored of you. I worry that you will always see me as some sort of little sister figure, someone that you help out of scrapes, but not as a woman of power and presence of her own, or a peer.
This is a fear that I hold about many people I admire in our community-- and I know that it is mine to own.
I often wonder how, and if, you see me, and if our friendship will ever deepen in the way that I desire.
At least I know that I surprise you, and in doing so, I often make you laugh your ass off ;>
I still don't know who that was ... and I'm still terribly, terribly curious.
If the author was you ... please won't you come forth? Private message, more anonymity, OK, but I'd really like to have a conversation. Can I buy you an adult beverage? Meet you for dinner?
