The Family Of Bloggers

By any normal definition, I don’t know Aydin Örstan of Snail’s Tales. I’ve never met him. Our backgrounds are very different. We have only a few abnormal interests in common. What do snails and slugs have to do with Akkadian and Ugaritic? Not much. And yet, I read his blog nearly every day. I know he reads mine from time to time. This is the extent of the mechanics of our relationship. But today’s events tell me that this is not the full extent of our relationship.
How strange are our human attachments? Aydin’s wife, of whom I know almost nothing, is dying and I am saddened with him and concerned for both of them.
