It strikes me all the time how odd things are. In this case I’m speaking on my wirting for Daven’s Journal.

I read what I write and while I find it interesting, I’m not always happy with it. Take my most recent article, Hatred and Debate. It rambles too much. It does not stay on topic. It flits from one topic to another within the same article without pulling the threads back together. I lost track of what I was saying multiple times and had to stop in the middle occasionally and do other things, like go to the store.

I HATE that.

But several people now have read it, several of them are those I respect for their intellectual outstandingness and their unique perspectives on life, and frankly I thought they would hate it. But I get emails and notes saying that I should sing it from the tops of the mountains and that I need to get it published or something.

So I was like, “What???”

So it surprises me when something like that happens. Gives me warm fuzzies and I still wonder what they are seeing that I’m not in my work.

Maybe I’m just too critical. I don’t know.
