a hug made by two arms


sometimes I look at a diary that seems popular and wonder how someone gets hundreds (or even many dozens) of linkers... is it banner ads or word of mouth or search engine placement or luck or great content or design or longevity or other intangibles... many theories can be argued and many may be right, but here's something I noticed today as I was clicking through the long linkers list of a few popular diaries... a lot of the linkers no longer exist at DLand, that is, the diaries are gone, the DLand error page comes up... and in a lot of other clicks the linker diary is locked... so when wondering how many actual linkers are on these long lists, the number is not the same as the number of diary names listed... just something to ponder today...

the irony is obvious, but for me, the dichotomy is cloudy... I see my linkers list and treasure you guys and get more than just an ego thrill out of the number and yet, maybe that's just my ego fooling me into believing it's more... what's the difference if I have no linkers or ten or a hundred or a thousand... does my phone ring more?... do I get more hugs made by two arms?... eye contact?... do I sleep alone?...

ah, but I know that loneliness can place a very wet blanket on anything so let me not damper the feeling, let me embrace the number of linkers and feel the gleeful thrill as it slowly goes up, let me imagine that being added to your favorite list truly means that I've touched your heart, that my words have meaning and value and worth... let this feeling embrace me with two strong arms, ethereal and true as anything can be, and let it strengthen my resolve to share any way I am able...

words, right here, right now, reach out to touch you... to expose my vulnerability, by hunger to share, to feel, to love and be loved... to question my motives, to challenge my values, to dig for the truth in my heart and give it to you as clearly as I can, to be naked and let you judge me, love me, hate me, ignore me, or whatever, for yourself...

life in black and white, life without dressing it up in design of frills, life without poetry or music, like in words as they pour from my head through my fingers to your eyes... hopefully, to your heart...

we interrupt these seemingly mindless dots for a word from (or at least about our sponsor (hmmm, sponsor?... what's the opposite of sponsor?)... anyway, now, as ado-less as possible, the word for you or andrew)...

you know that box to the right on the dland entry page called recent public entries?... what do the asterisks mean?... and the bold?...
