In which I help you with your place in this world


I was looking out over the Mississippi River. It is a mighty river and long. And I wondered:

How many people are looking at this river, like me, at this very moment?

And then; 

How many people have ever looked at the Mississippi River?

Either a lot!

Or none.

Do you believe in other people?

This is a more important question than one might think!

You may think you dispensed with such a question at age 15. 

No one has fully dispensed with this question!

So, do you believe in other people?

You should!

Or at the very least, me. You should believe in me.

Because I could swear I was looking at the Mississippi River!

And I suspect there were others as well.

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.
