A funny thing happened, while writing.

I was just called by a pollster.  She asked my permission to engage in a few questions on current topics.

I told her.

No.  My opinions do not aggregate well.  I am a unique perspective.  I am a writer.

I was surprised at how spontaneously, powerfully, and politely, I conveyed my thoughts,  before hanging up.

I loved that I didn’t wait for her response.  Saying no feels good, when it means saying yes to something more important.

I think I am going to use this line for the forceable future, until my message gets out there, on metaphorical paper.

My opinions do not aggregate well.  I am the aggregator.  I am here to make sense of your data.
