I just wrote this, hit publish, and it disappeared. I take that as a challenge, not as a “sign” I shouldn't publish it.
When I write to you, I want more than just talking to myself. I am talking to you, an unmet friend. I am enclosing my personal email address (wondering if that is why my comments were censored out a few minutes ago). In doing so, I ask if you have any comment at all, I’d really like to hear it.
I am not fishing for compliments, but of course they are welcome. What I’m looking for is honest, straight forward response to what I write, if there is any. I learn from negative comments, so don’t be shy. If you have no comment, that too is cool.
