In the ongoing discussions at my workplace of the now infamous Bible Re-shelving Day, I have been understandably excited about the flow of traffic to my blog. The other day my boss decides to shed his brand of sunshine on the event:
"Well this is all great, but what happens next week when you go back to being a nobody?"
I laughed. What he doesn't know is being a nobody is my ultimate goal in this life. I don't want my identity to become hooked on anything I do or say. I just want to show up and be present. And if someone connects with that, so be it.
I watched the sitemeter on this blog as my hits experienced an all-time daily high of almost 3,000 after the events hit PZ Myers' blog, almost a week ago. And I have watched them go down by half each day since. And I'm amazed at how much it actually doesn't bother me. I feel so grateful for those who've stopped by, for the new friends I've acquired along the way and for the re-emergence of an old friend (the anon poster who linked my blog to Myers to begin with).
Life waxes and wanes. People come and go. It is what it is.
