It was reported this week that there were over 2 billion internet users this year. That’s about one third the Earth’s population. So, to all 2 billion of you: hi! Thank you for being the abyss into which I can empty my thoughts, the ocean where I throw these messages in blog-shaped-bottles. You make me feel damn small, but that isn’t a horrible thing.
Kathleen Kelly said it well in You’ve Got Mail:
Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, valuable, but small. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So goodnight, dear void.
Goodnight, dear void.
