A milestone passed

CaptureJust a little note say that in the very last minutes of yesterday we had our one millionth view of the Patrick Leigh Fermor blog. Not bad in just over four years.

Thank you for following and do come back for more in 2015.

    I’d just like to add my congratulations Tom ; your hard work has actually created a thoroughly informative archive on everything to do with PLF and much other stuff in and around the core subject ; – far more than a run-of-the-mill Blog . Weel done and many thanks .

    Many cograts Tom

    Language survives everything–corruption, misuse, ignorance, ineptitude. It is the human glory which antecedes all others. It merits not only our homage but our constant and intelligent study. Anthony Burgess Words are the only things that last for ever. Winston Churchill If words fall into disrepair, what will substitute? They are all we have. Tony Judt I don’t think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you might nudge the world a little or make a poem that children will speak for you when you are dead. Tom Stoppard

    Well done Tom. It’s a much appreciated and well managed blog. The reaching of a milestone can be the opportunity to pause to look forward as well as back. It may seem to be a doubtful kind of reward for a man who has done so much, such as your goodself, to suggest that he might consider doing more in a somewhat different context.

    Still, the thought has occurred to me that there might be a demand for a collection of essays by diverse members of PLF’s reading public, who have a certain if not exalted facility in writing, treating of the effect upon them of his writing: how they would compare his work with other literary travel writing and literature generally, how his work may have affected their taste in reading and any other aspects of their lives; any of their life experiences which might have to do in some way with the great man. I’m thinking here less of academic papers by university dons than of compilations of a few thousand well organised words written by ordinary people who have some familiarity with PLF’s work. It has also occurred to me that you would be the ideal editor of such a work.
