WordPress and Tumblr have just informed me that i have somehow reached my 500th post. i guess this includes posts that are almost duplicates of other posts, only with different headings and maybe a few words changed, here and there. But I know I would not be writing if not for readers such as yourselves who have generously and patiently invested time and reflection upon my meanderings. You may not be numerous (as far as I know, there are only 10 or 12 of you), but it’s really about the depth of thought you put into reading me–through darkness and light, movement and stagnation, regret and hope, presence and absence, distraction and mindfulness, connection and disconnection, saving, deleting, avoiding, returning. you have been through everything with me.
So now is a perfect time express my profound gratitude to J. and S. and S. and C. and C. and M. and H. and R. and I. (the letter I, not the me “I), and D. and N. and E. and A. (who propelled me to write), and … I am sure I must be leaving one other person out… and the foggy abstraction of my imaginary audience. Hopefully I can continue to tell you things that are worthy of your attention.
