Note to estranged daughter

As you know, I can see the many many visits that you've been making to my blog. I also can see from the source of some links that bring you and others to my blog that you've written a post which has a title that references my taking three years to write something and the last word that I can see in that title on my statistics counter is "you" which likely means "me".

I am taking a moment here to let you know that I did not write my posts on Being Wrong as being about you or meant for you or directed to you. I wrote those posts because the book and the topic brought up many thoughts about our ability to make errors, our ability to be wrong. I felt compelled to write about it. If you did not exist, I would still have felt compelled to write that.

I see that you continue to be obsessed with my blog. I do not visit your blog. I do not monitor it. I am not going to read the post that you wrote. I leave you and your blog in peace. I wish that you would leave me in peace. While I hope that life is going well for you and I will always care about you even though we are estranged, I do not want to have anything to do with you. I would appreciate it if you would stop visiting my blog.

If I take three years or ten years or two days to write about something that I am thinking about, it is none of your business. I mind my own business. How about you minding more of yours and less of mine!

Any posts that I write here are not about you and are not directed to you. Please go away. It would be great if we could at least have a peaceful estrangement.

Take care,
