There comes a time


There comes a time in everyone's life where they must write a blog post. For some people this happens but the one time, or even a little bit less. For me it has happened 3,100 times. So maybe I don't accord it the same gravity with which I once did.

On the other hand maybe I always accorded this little gravity to my blog posts. Maybe my blog posts have all the gravity of the moon! Maybe they


as if




Or, wait, get this: Maybe blog posts are like base hits in professional baseball. Did you know that it is widely considered that if one gets 3,000 hits in a major league baseball career one is guaranteed a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame, baseball's greatest, most sought after honor? 

Maybe now that I have written over 3,000 blog posts my legacy is assured, and I am merely burnishing my legacy.

But the wise reader counters:

Ah, but a base hit on the moon has so much less value, for the ball travels farther at the slightest touch.

Let us think on this a while, as the ball flies.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
