  1. What? No answers? No followers of this enticing blog want to share? I do, but since each question deserves a well considered essay, I copy the queries and answer them on my own blog.... BUT as a teaser I shall answer the first question here: How would I characterize my sense of humor? Wicked. I have a wicked sense of humor. People think I'm serious. And so I am. I am serious and focused. My dry, witty humor takes folks by surprise.

  2. Hi Garnet! Welcome to the blog!

    I recently changed blogging platforms. My old blog had several responses from readers responding to the "About You" page. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to transfer them to this new blog.

    This blog is only about 14 days old, so I figure there's plenty of time yet for people to post on "About You".

    Again, thanks for dropping by. And wicked senses of humor are especially welcome here.

  3. Thanks, Paul! I'll answer the second question, too: I found this blog while blog-surfing. Once in a while I go to my blog profile, click 'United States,' and the profiles of the US folks who have most recently visited their blogs pops up. I click on the ones that look interesting, and leave comments on those that intrigue me.

  4. Hi Paul!
    I'm from India, and i had started a blog of my own (which unfortunately was a failed venture), and i found your blog when i googled 'loving someone and loving an idea of someone'. Since then, i just keep coming back for more! The blog is really enticing and i love your philosophy discussions!
    Keep up the awesome work!

    1. Thank you for your very kind words, and your encouragement, Tejas! I hope to get back to blogging soon.

  5. Hi, Paul. Hope this comment gets published. I am trying to use my Word Press ID. My sense of humor is spontaneous, probably too spontaneous. My Mother told me, "Why take life seriously? You'll never get out of it alive, anyway." And she was right!
