Constant Reader, even though I don't know you and we have never met... I think you're great.
Sometimes, it's strange that the inflection in our voices either help or hinder giving a genuine compliment to ones you love, ones you admire and even the random strangers. I have a held a very long belief in the idea of people. We are often self-sabotaging puppets perambulating on this ball of good green earth, trying to eke out some explanation of our existence. But we are also complex creatures who can create anything and everything out of nothing, for different reasons. Even if we are just bored and want to see some sparks happening in life.
Most people don't get a compliment for just being here, so I think it should be a thing. Even if you have the most negative of personalities. Hell, you can have a wit and gravitas of a wet fart in an opera house, and you can have a compliment... sort of.
So, if no one says this to your face today, tomorrow or even in a year... Thank you for being here.
I hope you can find the time to pass it on.
