You know what?
There are far too many people that I need to thank.
And you know how I’ve realized this? The acknowledgements sections in my books run for pages on end, even when I reduce the font-size and you need a magnifying glass.
You should try writing your own, whatever your lot in life, and when truly nutting it over you’ll likely find the exact same thing. Not the eyepiece, but the list-size. I’m not complaining here — far from it, I’m indebted, hugely appreciative, and am in turn inspired by these people.
And sometimes we forget to, well, acknowledge all that they have given to us — so this is my posting to go somewhere toward rectifying the issue.
I wrote this before, a few days ago, when I was especially moved by the support and encouragement I’ve been getting from a wad of remarkable people. WordPress promptly “lost” the post and all that was written, albeit gushing.
Now, however, it’s humid and sweltering in Tokyo and hard to get all excited about anything except the refrigerator (my new best friend). Obviously, I cannot wait for the Melbourne trip coming up in less than a couple of weeks in order to chill down — though I’ll prob’ly whine about the weather there too, the moment I set foot off the plane.
Huh. Wasn’t this posting supposed to be all about saying cheers?
OK, so here we go.
