I’m kind of paranoid about people taking my sometimes Internet-crank like writings the wrong way. I’m extremely harmless. I’m not quiet and I don’t keep to myself. In fact, in the real world, in person, I’m very much an extrovert. But we live in such a world that anyone who is “different” is automatically pigeonholed as dangerous and bonkers.
So, when I saw in my Webstats that someone in Alexandra looked at the “fashion photography” tag I grew concerned. The person came directly to that tag, as if maybe it was sent to them in an email. Given Alexandra’s proximity to Washington D.C. and, as such, like the FBI, I a little unnerved that somehow the FBI thinks I’m some sort of deranged lunatic that needs to be watched.
I’m definitely no such thing. In fact, the worse thing anyone ever said about me was I was “a delusional jerk with a good heart.”
So, please, FBI agent, if it was you, please don’t think I’m some sort of crazy person. I’m different, yes, but harmless. I have a lot of ideas about a lot of things, but I hate violence, hate guns and just want to be left alone so I can work on my novels.
