I attended a reception a few weeks ago. During the mingling and small talk, I was introduced to a lady that I knew by reputation. Our professional circles were very different, and to my recollection, we had never met. After a few minutes of conversation, this person asked me if I used to write for the Metro Spirit. She then proceeded to tell me that she always enjoyed reading the column.
Of course, this admission caught me off guard. It’s been a few years since my last column. Given the attention span of pop culture, I figured that my 15-minutes of pseudo-recognition ended long ago. After the initial unexpectedness subsided, a second feeling took its place – gratitude.
During the time I wrote for the Metro Spirit, folks would regularly express that they enjoyed reading the column. To all of you who followed me in the Spirit, please know that I appreciate all the kind comments.
