A huge congratulations! And deep gratitude for your inspiring example, your willingness to share your drafts with Via Negativa’s readers on the open web, and to be such a dependable (yet always unpredictable) co-blogger. I’m quite sure I would’ve burned out on Via Negativa years ago had it continued to be a solitary venture. Instead, you inspired me to follow suit with a daily writing project of my own, and probably also to start taking my work at least a bit more seriously. And so the Via morphed into this long-distance self-publishing collaboration, and we are just a few days away from reaching our 10,000th published post! Maraming salamat.

Also, I love Dr. Zhang’s shirt!
