2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,100 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 18 trips to carry that many people.

The Road (2009)

There is hope!
And there are good people too!

My posts tend to be brief (I tend to be brief), but here’s what the writer Nicholas Conley writes about The Road on his blog, Nicholas Conley’s Writings, Readings and Coffee Addictions:

The rather gut-wrenching action of traversing The Road‘s pages is a perfect mirror to the depressingly futile journey that the protagonists, a boy and his father, must go on: a hopeless trek through an expired Earth, in search of a mythical coastline that may or may not be worth the trip.

From Cormac McCarthy, author of “No Country for Old Men“.
