JDJ: “The next time you hold two quarters in your hand, you'll be holding about the
same weight (or more) as this and most other warblers. The Yellow Warbler is
only about 5 inches long.
Think about how small that is. Then think about what they go
through every year as they move back and forth across the Western Hemisphere.
So where am I going with all this? It’s to reinforce why
comments and reviews need to be put in perspective. Hiding within the
electronic wafers of the Internet are nameless, faceless, and wretched on-line
trolls. (Whew! I feel better now.)
If you receive a poor review from an on-line troll, I
suggest you consider the source, and please do not respond to the reviewer.
That might dig a deeper, darker hole than you want to dive into.
For a review like that mentioned in my first paragraph,
perhaps a conversation with Amazon (if that’s where it was made) might get the
unfair/unjustified review removed. Might.
In the meantime, if you’re like me, you might console yourself with a treat.
Personal observation truism: People watching is next to
Godliness and cleanliness for writers. It's the reason I can't go to a library
or a park or a coffee shop to write. All I do is people watch
That’s it for today’s post. You-all guys keep on
keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same.
