Why all this reminisce?
This is my 4000th published blog. There are nine blogs that were either written to be published in a later that never came or that I took down because I decided that I no longer wanted them to be associated with me.
I’ve thought a bit about what to write for this blog and I simply couldn’t decide.
It feels momentous to me but, it’s just a blog.
It feels a bit pompous to be celebrating the thinnest of accomplishments.
This blog has served as a personal diary, as a record of my journey as a disabled, gay, fat, man. It has also given me a forum to bring forward issues that trouble me or excite me or pique my interest.
But most of all, it’s given me connection to an amazing group of readers. I enjoy meeting those who read my blog and chatting with them about their reaction to what I think and what I choose to write about. Those of you who have introduced yourselves to me are a fine bunch, those who I know from comments are equally fine. You have challenged me, told me I’m wrong and invested this blog with life.
So here we all are, years later, 4000 posts later.
I thank you for your time and your attention and your thoughts. Thanks for pushing me to grow. Thanks for being here today to read this.
Wow. And wow, indeed.
