Call it what you want. the pinnacle altitude on Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, or the Coach seat in Dante’s Inferno.
After I read C.S. Lewis’s The Great Divorce yesterday, I’m half convinced that Larry Flynt has a greater chance of going Heaven than the person who invented the “duck lips selfie.”
The “self-actualization” thing is a double-edged blade, for sure. But today, I am risking eternal perdition in the ninth circle for recognizing what YOU readers have done for me: Given me a milestone FOURTEEN “likes” on a single blog post. To some that follow me–some with literally 10,000 followers, that was a big deal a long time ago.
I’ll try not to let that go to my head. Otherwise, back to Lewis’ bus I go.
But I’m not them, and I hope to have a readership that wide someday. Until then, I see YOU–NOW–with even GREATER value than I could begin to put on an impersonal number in the five and six-digit range.
Yesterday’s post about finishing my first chapter seems to have interested a number of you. Thank you for letting me know.
