Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

It feels good to give.

(It feels good because it does your soul/spirit/whatever good.)

(When was the last time you surprised someone with a simple gift? Do you remember how you felt when their face lit up?)

kayan had this to say (11/28/2006 22:55:16):
I know what you mean. I recently heard about a woman who gave food to a homeless man, only to be met with the lit-up reply "go away, you [n-word]." The next day, she returned with more food for the same man. THAT is something else.

Your thoughts?
