The Party at The End Of The World
9/1/2004 7:20:03 PM
What does a world do when it begins to realise that there is nothing left for it to do? That it no longer has a purpose or reason to exist? Indeed that it soon may no longer exist at all?
What if you had the chance to leave the world you have lived in all your life for a new world - and a new purpose? What if you have to answer that question for real?
It's been a little while but I've just posted my latest short story hot off the presses. That's it in the title and it is now in my short story collection here for you to read if you wish.
Well I looked at my page stats today and they are just approaching 8,000 visits. Man that's humbling for a guy who is more or less imprisoned in his own home by chemical disability. To know my writing has touched the lives of so many, however briefly, is more than I could have ever hoped for, even if I were able-bodied. Thanks AD.
OK there is not much in the bank to show for it but for me touching lives and sharing a few brief moments while we are on this planet together just doesn't translate into fiscal language at all. How can you even begin to place a dollar value on it? Mind you it doesn't translate into food on the table much either :)- thank goodness for the pension and the love of a good woman with a job. Still it would be nice if I could translate something for the sake of my family. :(
But still I thank my Lord for all of it! I am happy to leave it all in His hands - I trust those hands.
Till next time bloggers.
Post a Comment new!
