A new subscription to my blog? And from a stranger? Hurray!
I knew I was doing something right. If I just kept at it, it was only a matter of time until I started growing my audience. Next stop? Not fame and fortune, exactly, but maybe fame: Isabel, Geriatric Blogger.
What a warm validation of what I do. Of who I am, really.
I am inspired to keep going.
It’s not a new subscription, but a new unsubscription? Noooo!
What have I done wrong? Could I have offended? Is my content too varied? My writing too dull? My photographs too amateurish? My posts too frequent? Too infrequent? Too short? Too long?
What a harsh repudiation of what I do. Of who I am, really.
Is there any point in going on?
In these dark nights of the soul, I’m grateful that I studied some philosophy in school. I turn there now for perspective, insight, reassurance: whatever’s on offer, really. And so it is that I find a new philosophy of my own by adapting and merging the words of two noted philosophers.
Hmm. Not a word about subscriptions, new or un.
