I Hope You See What I Mean

As to what I will do when my obsolescence becomes complete, I don't know. Unlike some, I view the future almost entirely with dread.

I agree -- but I look forward rather than dread this inevitable outcome... and I continue to write my (complex?) prose but then immediately put it on the public internet as some sort of acceptance of the type of thing you say. I haven't submitted anything to a book or mag publisher since 1999 and I feel that is the best way to remain positive in a negative way! I hope you see what I mean.

When I say not submitted anything since 1999, that means off my own bat. I have been solicited for work to be printed from time to time (not often!) and I have supplied it.
