I will miss Thierry's blog. It was one of the ones that I read every day. Is it selfish for me to want him to resume? The thing I find so troubling about the internet is that while it can connect us with a wider world, our exchanges do not take shape in real time, and a person can disappear without a trace. If I suddenly erased my blog, I would no longer exist to those who casually come across my words, or who visit this site from time to time. As it is I may only be a fiction, conjured of words and images, but intangible.
