Please accept my humble appreciation for the positive feedback surrounding yesterday’s post about the list of 40 great aspects of Syracuse. There was no expectation after publishing it, but its impact was broader than anticipated. A new set of expectations have been laid for myself from your motivation. I’m glad I’ve touched hearts. There have been several emails, shares, text messages, comments that have been coming in, and I’m doing my best to respond to all of you in a timely fashion.
As stated, there is an infinite number of aspects in our city and surrounding area, and these create stories that branch out and stay with us wherever we go. Several of you have commented anecdotes about growing up in the 315 area code; some of these stories could date before my time, and some–that do not date before my time–are actually new to me. Thank you for sharing, for enlightening me and others.
Of course, there will be many more Syracuse-related articles, photographs, and tidbits to come. There will still be the continuation of (weird) fiction pieces, sarcasm, and posts of whatever-the-hell-is-on-my-mind. Please stay tuned. The next couple days are busy–responding to comments, writing for a friend’s business, and personal job-searching tactics/endeavors. An update might not be seen until Friday or Saturday.
(P.S. Yes, Mark, I did tear up that list in Sunday’s post.)
