Seventh Year

So Siris has finished its seventh year; I had almost forgotten. According to Blogger, there have been 4,720 posts here, not counting this one; barring anything unusual, I'll hit the five thousand mark at some point in this next year. Most of them are trivial little things, of course. But Siris was started mostly just so that there would be somewhere for my mind to be unruly; and so it is. I've learned much in the past years, and all too little; and that, I suppose, is the human lot. We'll see what more can be learned.

The most popular post from the past year has been Immanuel Kant's Guide to a Good Dinner Party.

    Brigitte and I will light a symbolic seven candles. It's been great to have experienced your unruly behavior for four of the seven -- and our loss to have been so late to stumble upon Siris. Keep on!

    Thanks! One of the nice things that makes a weblog better than, say, a private notebook is having readers like you and Brigitte!

    Wow, 7 years. I've been reading you for way too long ;) .

    I kid. At this point, you're pretty much like a neighbor down the street. Glad to see you still going strong after 7 years. Plus, mow your friggin' lawn!

    Congratulations! Here's to many more fruitful years of writing, though I think you'll be hard pressed to top Kant's dinner party. :)
