If a tree falls in the forest with no one around
I mentioned something humorous to my wife last night that I had said in a blog earlier in the week . I assumed that I would get a sympathetic chuckle from it. Or at least a flicker of recognition. Flicker came there none, much less chuckle. She told me that she had not read the piece. When I questioned why, she admitted, "I really don't read your blog, there are too many pieces where you take some weird news story off of CNN and make fun of it. I don't like that." "But", I stammered," that's what I do, that is the blog." "Yeah. I just don't like it." When a blogger loses a spouse from his audience, in most cases he has lost his entire audience.Unless his parents have a computer. Mine don't. Why keep blogging ? If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound ? If a blogger launches words into the eyther and no one reads them, are they really there ?Actually, that reminds me of a cartoon that was on the wall of a place in San Francisco where I used to rent and return cars. It was a picture of a tree, having fallen down in the forest with no one around. The tree is lying on its side muttering "shit". That's my blog for the day.
