I am also looking forward to read his book. But I don't expect it to be as riveting as the blog. I read every entry on that blog, I would count the hours between entries. Sometimes I would hear something on the radio, or read a report in the paper, and bite my fingernails with anxiety wondering if it was in his area of if he would post something that day, just to know that he was still there.
A Blog, there is noting like it, nothing I have ever seen at least, other than actually being there. But a book.
It might be great, it might have new stuff, it might be ugly and sad and all that, but it won't have any immediacy.
We know he's all right, at least his body is fine, maybe the book will give us a look into his mind. but even that will be detached in a way, that the blog was not. The blog was real.
I can only hope the book proves me wrong.

Fay, where did that picture come from? Is that you?
And how did you post it here on my blog.
Why am I always the last one to know anything.

Yes, that's me. I uploaded it to blogger via hello software then linked it to my profile. So, it shows everytime I post a comment.

Check hello software here:

Hello integrates with blogger very easily. that's how lately, I've been posting pictures on my blog.

Thanks Fayrouz, I was not expecting any pictures when I opened the new post a comment page, I had gone out to smoke a cig, and the next thing I see is a picture. I'm like where did that come from, And how did it get on my blog.
I'm going to have to get me an image, but not my picture that would just scare everyone away. I'm going to think of something abstract to use....
