Today is the fourth anniversary of my little blog. It has been a delight sharing my unusual perspective on the world with you, and I greatly appreciate your support and encouragement. Thank you so very much.

Highlights from these last 12 months include the publication of my 100th essay and clicking over a quarter of a million visits to my site. Most amazing and pleasing.

Special thanks to Naja who edits The Blue Paper in Key West. They have re-posted almost all of my essays and I greatly cherish having their readers aboard.

I continue to keep my little sharing space as pristine as possible with no ads, no donations tab and no Patreon link. Financially it is a challenge – but emotionally it is a reward.

As revealed in my recent essay entitled IN PRAISE OF UNSAFE SPACES, I am about to embark on an exciting and hazardous adventure (all true adventure involves danger). I will be crewing aboard some friends’ boat as we attempt to sail the Northwest Passage – up where the polar bears roam. As someone who has always aspired to being both a philosopher and an adventurer, this is a perfect opportunity for me.

The voyage should take a few months. Will post essays whenever I can, but the internet availability will obviously be a significant issue.

It will be intriguing to see if this radical change in latitude and temperature changes my perspective.

You’ll be the first to know.

Thanks again,

Ray
