Spam and Chaos
Today I am Fend Shui-ing my email, starting a new address after my longtime address got hacked. The idea of all of those contacts (including not just trusted friends but also famous strangers, old bosses, new job contacts, etc) hearing from "me" over and over gives me the creeps.
I always have this fear that if I do anything wrong, even accidentally, that people will abandon me, so it's actually kind of soothing to get commiserating emails, to just remember that I don't have to be perfect or even close to it.
One such message, from Pat Cohee:
"You are surrounded by the Love of your many admirers and fans !
Don't let Hacking and Unpredictableness interfere with your destiny
as goddess of poetry." Thanks.
