Thanks for writing in

It was delightful to receive emails from a few of you who read my blog posts recently. Thanks for your well wishes. It is all the more a relief to me as I wondered if anyone still reads blog posts – it is so much more convenient these days to log into Facebook and view friends’ status updates instead.
Also, I have written a few times about the passing of people I’ve known, or barely known, or not even known at all. This has prompted people who’ve known them to write in to me – usually to thank me and share personal experiences they’ve had with their late friend or relative. One such thing just happened, regarding a post I wrote 5 years ago. Blogging is useful as a memorial, in this sense.
May we remember the lessons from the past, even as we look to the future.
