Again, a number which assumes significance in the blog world. A century and the successive ones..
This time, I want to take the opportunity to tell all you readers and commenters, how much you are an intrinsic part to my blogging and my life. I have often boasted to R before, how I blog only for myself. I blog to write, and I write for pleasure. That readers and commenters are only incidental to the process, a fun aspect of blogging. But that is not true. For it is actually you who fuel my efforts to write...who leave me with the desire to share these slices of my life, knowing that it makes some difference to someone without an immediate face, but with enough character and personality packed into that one letter, or 2 letters or more of nicks and names.
All of you are readers first, before you become commenters. And I have loved this silent world of readers as much as I have the spirited voices from the comments section. Because it has been proved to me from time to time to time, that when the moment is ripe, a reader becomes a commenter. There will always be some point of connection somewhere, that will make you click one extra time and leave a voice for me to hear. And I am grateful for that. Deeply grateful.
And in order to balance out the sentiments from the last few days with something a little lighter, I want to do a fun poll. On this recent trip, one of R's Mama's shared a pearl of wisdom with me. He said that he was yet to come across a couple that unanimously agreed on the usage of the ceiling fan! I was stunned to hear it, and in the course of the next few days proceeded to conduct little surveys of all the couples who were around me. And even more stunned to find that yes, he was right. Starting with R and me. On a perfectly pleasant day, it will be me wanting the fan at the lowest speed at least, for that minimum circulation, without which I would come close to acute suffocation. R will take the diametric opposite end and curl up shivering and pleading for some compassion for his trembling state. We asked 6 more couples and each of them were situated on the opposite sides of the spectrum, making this observation a promising contender for a quotable quote!!! I am now continuing this survey with you...for what is a finding if it is not supported by the maximum population. So go on...humour me, think about your own partner and you and tell me which one likes the fan on!
Lots of love!!!!
