This is not intended to be a proper blog ..............(I do not consider any posting in which I do not offer at least 100 of my own words to be acceptable as a blog entry......that or a photo or a sketch at least).
I have just been pointed to a blog of such monumental wonderfulness that I am not only shamed by my own pitiful efforts in comparison, but I am at the same moment blown away by the profundity and exquisite style of the offering. Of course, the blog is by a professional journalist and writer and that makes me feel a little less defensive so it's OK.
We can all go forth and glory in the blog of the wonderful film critic and human being, Roger Ebert. Below is the post that had me fainting with joy, appreciation and admiration. And the subject is one sure to be close to the heart of every blogger, I think........Loneliness.
