Why no one reads your stuff
Yann Girard

I’m going to do what you say is not useful, and write this comment. I like to read other people’s stuff because it gives me an indication as to the ‘condition’ of people out there, I need to feel the pulse occasionally to prevent myself becoming a solipsistic asshole and crowing from the top of my dungheap like an idiot. There is a lot of striving to be noticed, seeking to be controversial for the pure motive of building a public image-we all do it, we all have a conceit that what we think and say matters; it only matters if other people connect with you and you genuinely return that connection, otherwise it is just cosmetics.
