Not Martha

Leslie Harpold

The first time I ever grabbed an image to use as desktop wallpaper it was 1999, maybe 98, and I used one from this little journey created by Leslie Harpold. Hers was one of the first personal sites I read and it took me to places on the web I loved her for. I did not know her well and we met only once, but she kept in touch and each time we’d exchange emails it was like talking with an old friend. Merlin Mann said it best: Leslie made every one of her friends feel like a fucking rock star, whether they wanted to or not. I am incredibly sad to learn of her death. I will miss you Leslie.
