Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
I had a dream last night that I hosted a Ricochet Meetup at my house, and 400 people turned up. I didn’t have enough forks.
Then I woke up, with a slight cold … and my beloved brought me breakfast and informed me that I’d “gone viral.” A story I told on The Moth a while ago has been re-released as a video (didn’t know they’d filmed it!) and has had 1.4 million hits.
An image of the little girl I call Nina, who loved her cousin Andy, rose before my eyes. How odd it is that her story is now part of the lives of a million strangers. She (a third-grader by now) is waiting under the grey sky for the school bus.
There are so many people in the world, and yet it is so small. I’ll see some of you — probably not 400, though! — in Massachusetts this weekend!Published in
