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.
They are genuinely amazing little creatures.”
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.
