For the first time ever, this past week there was no one in Russia reading my blog. Normally Russian readers are second in number only to those in the USA. I was worried about you, my Russian friends, because of the reports of demonstrators there now being jailed. I think of you as just the kind of folks who would demonstrate. (Not saying you have to, of course!)
But as of today, you are back. And I am very glad.
Sometimes, being 80, I get weary and think I should just quit my writing about politics. But then I think of you readers in all those other countries and get a nice warm feeling of community with the whole world.
Thank you all for being there and for reading my blatherings. You are the light of my world!
And what a wonderful world we all share! Together we can keep it wonderful and make it even better for all its people.
Thanks for being back, my dear Russians.
