I got a message today saying I now have twenty followers. I should throw a party, eh?

It is actually a bit trippy knowing that there are people I don’t know personally who are following my blog. Of course, I also know that following a blog is not necessarily the same thing as reading a blog. No matter. I celebrate anyway.

For me, to be able to communicate with people whom I shall never meet is the ultimate power of the written word. It is one of the greatest powers in the universe. It is immortality.
