    Thanks for the follow and the compliment – I like your amazingly snazzy sunglasses. Also, your writing. It’s gritty and honest, and I definitely admire that.

      Thanks for the kind words. Gritty (more like abrasive) definitely describes my writing!

    Your awesome glares hide the eyes that see magic in the world around us, in the words we live with. AMAZING would be an understatement, the more I read of you, the more hooked I am.
    Keep up the good work, you are an inspiration! Its an honor for me to be followed by you and a privilege to follow you.

      My goodness. That’s just too nice of you. I really loved your collection of words, as well. You know what they say about great minds?

    Hi Ryan! Thank you for stopping my blog and liking my story – Anjani! I really appreciate it. I’m new to blogging so it always feels nice to have someone appreciate my work.
    I’m following you now so I can stay updated on your writing! Looking forward to reading your work 🙂

    • Ryan December 4, 2013 at 1:57 pm #

      Oh, no need for thanks. The pleasure was all mine. I am new to blogging as well. I am looking forward to seeing more work from you! I enjoyed what I read thus far. Abraços!

    Hi Ryan
    I’ve given you a mention on the Blog Hop page http://bbgoodman.wordpress.com/blog-hop/ Don’t feel you have to do it. And I hope you don’t mind. I regarded it more as a challenge than a reward.
    Regards Bruce

      Hey Bruce! I´ve been pretty inactive as of late. Real life is getting in the way of my making up fake life! I´ll check this out over the weekend my friend. Have a great day!

    Thank you for reading my blog. I hear Brazil is really nice. I met a lot of Brazillans when I lived in China. Most of them made shoes.

    • Ryan July 22, 2014 at 12:46 pm #

      Thank you for being so brave! I know that word gets thrown around a lot and in a lot of cases, undeservedly, but I think you are brave in the way you are confronting your difficulties. Also, thanks for stopping by here and saying hello. I appreciate it. Abraços!

      Thank you very much! Thanks for stopping by and having a read. I appreciate it!

    Is this a new WP ‘theme?’ If so, nice! If it isn’t, I apparently don’t pay attention to such matters.

    • Ryan August 9, 2014 at 8:14 pm #

      Hey Eric! No it´s not. It´s the same one I have been using since I started this blog a little over a year ago. I like how “clean” it is.

      • Eric Tonningsen August 9, 2014 at 8:20 pm #

        Crisp, clean, uncluttered — all work well here. I guess I’ve just been replying to your post via the WP Reader versus going to your site. All remains good. 🙂

      • Ryan August 9, 2014 at 8:23 pm #

        That makes sense, Eric! I am always glad when you pop by be it via WP reader or whatever!

    You have disappeared! On purpose?

    • Ryan May 1, 2016 at 6:58 pm #

      Hello brother! I have disappeared. It is not on purpose. I have let life and laziness get in the way! Damned Resistance that Steven Pressfield speaks of. I will try to find my way again! Thanks for worrying about me! 🙂

      • Bruce Goodman May 1, 2016 at 7:20 pm #

        I wasn’t too worried to be honest! I think it’s great to let life and laziness et in the way!

      • Ryan May 1, 2016 at 8:35 pm #

        Well, I hope I am back! 🙂 Great to hear from you!!!!!

    Brazil! I always wanted to visit. I’m from PA also.

    • Ryan May 24, 2019 at 1:48 pm #

      You should! But which Brazil? What I mean is, Brazil, like the US, is absolutely huge and there are many “Brazils” just like in the US. I´m from Reading, though I lived in Philly for a while. Thanks for visiting!
