The Void

The Sought-After is a bit lonely. No one has posted a comment for weeks. Perhaps I scared you all away with my angry posting about the myth of salvation. If so, I'm sorry. Or maybe it's something else. Send up a flare to tell me you're out there? (I have no idea how to access my statcounter, so I really don't know if anyone's reading at all.) Am I just shouting into the void? Please let me know. And I promise not to be mean.

I'm reading (via Google Reader) and thought your last post was excellent. Really excellent.

I usually hang back from commenting on the blogs of adopted adults. I'm an adoptive parent and we (as a generalized group) often go sticking our noses where they're not really wanted on the internet. So I err on the side of caution and soak in the writing while staying quiet.

thanks so much for speaking up. I really appreciate it! In the past, I've done a lot of blog reading without commenting, so I understand the impulse, but now that I'm a blogger, I have a totally different perspective on commenting--it's a lonely thing to do if no one's responding.

Thanks for your kind words about my post, and please feel free to "stick your nose" wherever you want on my blog--I'm very interested in the perspective of adoptive parents. In fact, they are one of the groups I most want to reach because I think they are, generally speaking, hungry for insight about being adopted so that they can parent their children in the best way they can. Is this consistent with your experience?

Also, just out of curiosity, how did you locate my blog?

Lurking as usual. Keep up the blogging! I find this so interesting and, of course, your writing is always a pleasure to read. Get together on Friday while the kids are in school?

i don't typically comment as i'm not directly touched by adoption but rather intrigued by your story--in particular i was moved by the connection you are making between your outdoor/adventure identity and your search for origins. again, since i'm not speaking from the adoption point of view, i hesitate; however, i experienced a difficult childhood/youth and found similar connection when i started serious backcountry travel. i am interested in how this thread will go -- as a writer/reader.
