My experience in writing this blog is pure pleasure mixed, as I expected it to be, with an occasional struggle in expressing thoughts accurately. For a guy who likes to think of himself as philosophically minded and verbally still adequate, this is a perfect retirement hobby.
I’ve found that re-reading these musings (to see what I’ve said) is far more pleasant on the blog site than in the font-challenged versions sent out in followers’ emails. It is humbling to consider that whatever illusion of wisdom shows up is at least partly due to the beauty of perfect typesetting. That may be, but there’s no denying that the email version seems visually thrown together. It’s only a bit short of distressing to think the utility of any insights conveyed rests largely on appearance. At any rate, I suggest you read posts on the johnjustthinking.com site rather than in your email program. I can assure you I’ll seem much smarter.
