And as for me I don’t believe I’ve written anything worthy enough in the past.

Well JB, I’m going to have to respectfully disagree with you there, because, well, that’s a load of shit! At the risk of you getting an inflated head, I will tell you that the following piece is not only well written, it is also generous; both in your subtle but very intentional attempt at building community, and with an extension, freely given, of the deeper aspects of you. Because of this, it is truly one of my favorite pieces (like top 5) on Medium.

And as far as you being one of the “worst offenders”, maybe you are, I don’t know. Though I think we all have a role to play in that problem in one way or another, myself squarely included. But what I do know is that your critiques and / or complaints, when I have read them, are usually sage and prescient.

Anyway, glad to see you, it’s been too long.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
