No Longer Me First

I tossed some fiction into a new ring, "The Clarity of Night" today. And now I wonder why. I have always deluded myself that I do this blog thing for me first and whoever stops by, well, it is appreciated, but I do not need to have my ego stroked. Hmm.


Yeah, on the heels of Ubermilf's establishing a blurt out day for her blog, I feel the need to blurt out also. We all need some ego stroking from time to time. Those of us who deserve it, often have it freely offered. But for those of us who are sure we don't rate, we feel the need to somehow offer payment of some kind for the strokes. We do something, we fix something, we make some kind of noble gesture that brings with it an expectation of recognition. And we may act all humble, shuffle our feet and our faces will go red, but down deep we love the attention.

So I guess what I am trying to say is thanks to any and all who have stopped by and allowed me some of your precious time. I appreciate it and yes, I look forward to it.

It looks like you will have a sunny day on Saturday, but cold.

Oh Mike...((Hugs))
You know I love stroking your ... ahem.. ego. ;P

You deserve it my friend. You're kind and very sweet and a pretty damn good writer to boot.

Love you..
