I have to confess that I am painfully challenged when it comes to anything electronic or that which exceeds the bounds of elementary computer mastery. That particular handicap of mine was driven home, recently, in spades
I began writing this blog in 2007 and I subscribed to Sitemeter in order to monitor activity on my blog, augmented by Blogspot for posting my blogs. I felt gifted that I was even able to manage all that. However, I recently discovered that there is a provision for “comments” which I had never seen before! I opened it and, voila, there was a treasure trove of comments that I had never looked at from the time I started writing. It was like Christmas multiplied many times over, and I enjoyed every word that greeted my eyes. I was overcome by the kind and generous assessment of so many of you with what I had committed to paper. It was, to say the least, a humbling experience.
Now, mind you, of the all the human frailties that any of us can commit, I regard taking anyone for granted to be one of the worst. I feel ashamed that I have allowed this to miss my attention for so long, and I sincerely apologize to all of you who have been victim to my ignorance. But, take some solace in knowing it was not deliberate.
I write my blog, not for any recognition or praise that might follow. Rather it is an expression from the heart and mind, such as they are. Without all of you who have been so generous with your time in reading and reflecting on those words, my efforts would have been for naught.
Starting off on a better foot, I sincerely wish each and every one of you a joyous and happy holiday season, and may the coming year be filled with renewed hope and promise for all who share a genuine concern for their fellow man and preservation of the fragile planet we all share.
All the best.
