I'm not just talking about the offense taken (on many levels) dealing with the subject of the short story. I don't even know what this "Evening Light Fading Affect " everyone seems to be talking about. I've been able to alienate and cause emotions that even those experiencing them do not recognize, to just about everyone who read the blog.
The coup de grâce is the fact that I could have incited an outcome to a contest to my dear friend Steve - of whom so graciously - though unknowing - had inspired my work yesterday. I knew that my posting would indeed be historic, causing bowel shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse* and wanted to verify with him that all was well. After a mutually respectful teleconference, Steve and I decided it would be best to cite his work. Ok - Steve basically laid it out that he would pull a Nedwin on my firstborn.
So where does this leave us? And what should I post now and in the future? Apparently my thoughts on the economy or financial advise doesn't seem to appeal to many folks. It's my experience that most do not really know what they have and are quite happy with that. Additionally, my thoughts on Obama or Palin leave others who don't wish to dwell on politico talk; because they just do not really know the politico scene that's happening, and are quite happy with that.
Of course, this journey in the Cyberspace isn't meant for everyone. It's mostly an inner journey into the being of Bob. So, my followers, as we embark into this third era of the journey let's remember where we started from and to where we are going:
My Friends, being the trendsetter, and Maverick from the North that I am. Being especially proud, independent, a lone wolf if you will . . . what-have-you - I am beginning a new stage in life. I am taking the stage of the cyberspace, going where none have gone before . . . posting my thoughts, beliefs, misnomers, misspellings, petty grudges, plagiarist tendencies, innuendo, and all original thought, in all the glory of Bob and all that I am - onto this new and scary world of blogging. Yes, my followers, it is a brave thing to venture out into the unknown.
