A Word About Commenting On Blogs

As a still fledgling blogger I of course appreciate the mere fact that someone has been by one of posts and has taken the time to have written any comment whatever, be it ever so seemingly slight.
I am keenly aware that "in today's world" (Isn't that a funny phrase? there is so much comedic potential there, but I'm not a standup comedian!) - well, just to be here and paying attention to your blog indicates that of all the vast data calling for my attention, I have chosen to be here, and in some sense "with you" or "with your consciousness" for these moments.
In closing, let me sum up:
Life is precious. Each moment is an eternity, yet (paradox) we have only a limited number of these eternal moments available to us.
So I am grateful when someone stops by long enough quite simply to say "Great post!"
And I can say. Thank you.
I'm here to communicate!

  1. Great post! I am sorry that I am not very good at commenting on your blog. OR on mine, for that matter. I seem to spend all my time either tweeting, or writing my own things. I love you, I love your blog, and I hope that you will remember this on the days when I don't stop by enough. xo molly

  2. Good points. I am making a firm effort to comment more than I have been on blogs I read. It's a little ironic to have a blog and be so caught up on how many comments I'm getting, if at the same time, I behave as though I can't take the time to comment on someone else's blog.

    So I'm working on it, and I feel the same way you do about comments!

  3. It's too bad so many bloggers are forgetting what blogging is all about ... two-way communication. It's not just about broadcasting your message into the world, it's about connection.

    :D

  4. Christopher, Patrick and Molly - I am so glad to see your faces in my comment section here. Echoing Christopher here- "It's not just about broadcasting your message into the world, it's about connection."
    Your comments allow me to know that I am communicating. They inspire me to become a "better blogger."
    Thank you.

  5. Hi Wayne, I love your blog and twitter stream, the stream is faster but the blog is richer. I also love your YouTube concerts especially those with art, and play them to remind me of my mother--who played Chopin when she was alive and I was young. Thank you for all the art, music, and writing you are sharing with us--some less vocal than others. It's a blessing to have found you here.-Jennifer
