I'm pathetic

Sitting With the Dead got published Monday in the Ithaca Journal. (Yes. I know. I'm blogging myself. How fucking pathetic is that?) But as I was driving to work, my cell phone rang, and it was some woman who had read my piece and wanted to call and tell me how moved she had been. It was incredible--to think that someone had gone to that trouble. But, I'm also getting people who think I'm an ignoramus commenting on my blog, so my ego is right-sized, I think. Too bad my country's isn't.

Oh, that is a remarkable piece. I'm glad you connected it here. Thank you.

Pretty fucking pathetic.

But the piece, mind, struck a marvelous chord. Well done.

You will find it congruent with my familial history that I had many of the same sensations at Arlington and more so at the Vietnam Memorial.

Too many, too many, too many, have gone from us. In the war that never ends.

Congrats on getting your piece published.

Not pathetic at all. The war is pathetic and depressing and enraging. Your writing is wonderful. Thanks.
