"Are you the same guy who debates a lot on our mailing list ?"
I was expecting something like that ,
they shook hand with me and said " It a pleasure meeting you Boss".
"I subscribe to the RSS feed of your blog .I must say your write very well. I wish I could write like that ". one of them said.
Needless to say I was happy to hear that . I was almost about to pull out my Parker pen to sign autograph when I heard following remark from him and stopped my self
"I wanted to start a blog too but I gave up the idea and deleted my Wordpress account " He continued ,
"why ?" I asked
One who is too wise an observer of the business of others, like one who is too curious in observing the labor of bees, will often be stung for his curiosity.~Alexander Pope

Communicating with "Third Person" :
We entered a oneness of silence; words seemed the rankest superfluities. Eloquence flowed in soundless chant from heart of master to disciple.
~ Swami Paramhans Yogananda
I have noticed a strange thing amongs many of these friends. Those friend amongst this group who are personal bloggers ,Whenever I am with them I always get a distinct feeling that though they are with me , nodding to my remark , answering my questions, laughing on my joke still they are not there. as if I am talking to a medium . real self is somewhere else .standing by the side may be.
Lately I had a pleasure and previlage of interacting with a very talented blogger , a celebrity in making .This feeling was very clear during my interaction.There was a third person bitween two of us. Always.That third person was aloof and observant at the same time . I saw that third person once . We were in a car, I looked up to the ceileng and there it was , hanging up side down . watching intently . when I treid to scream it casted some hogwartian magic spell and my scream was supressed. All right ! That last part was figment of my imagination But I did saw it ,for a sec, before my car hited a bump and I was jolted back to reality.that was the moment when the core idea of Meta curse theory was born.
Anyways,I had felt this way few time before (with diffrent folks, some of them bloggers , some not ) everytime I got an impression that the "Third Person" don't want his existence to be acknowledged and He might be offended if I even tried to commit the transgression of attempting to contact him . That made me a little uncomfortable and concious.
