we want to make you comfortable

henrietta harris, via juxtapoz

we know you visit miamibourbaki,
but generally you don't comment,
reading is OK,
granted, you don't receive information from our eyes continuously,
you don't see everything that is in front of our eyes,
you don't see anything that is in front of our eyes immediately,
as reader, you identify meaning without, or ahead of, the identification of certain words,
reading is fast,
reading is selective,
you're in command,
you could have a wealth of visual information before your open eyes 
and still not be able to read it,
comments take time,
comments are vague,
comments are speculative,
that's enough,
no problem,
should we leave the comment box open?
we really want to make you comfortable,
keep visiting,
thanks,

Attributed comments require
effort,
vulnerability,
and courage.
They ask you to risk revealing that you have nothing worthwhile to say.
Anonymous comments shields your ego,
but leave you feeling like a coward.
Not commenting is probably the safest bet.
Hahaha this is probably all bullshit.
Leave the comments open Triff!

Thank you for your posts, Triff! They are insightful, and inspiring, and make me want to steal your library of resources and experience! Your analytical approach to placing texts in conversation with each other through your own editorial tone is so refreshing.
