This is a little random (part of the reason for starting a new thread for it :)) … Background: I participate in discussion about the Inklings (Lewis, Tolkien, etc) elsewhere on catholic.com. The part that may seem a bit random is that this morning, during an idle moment, I got to thinking about how the interest in said discussions seems to have declined a good deal.
From there a got to thinking about how interest in web discussion forums, in general, seems to have declined in the last few years. (Or, at least, that seems to be the case for Catholic and Orthodox forums … I seldom participate on protestant or non-religious forums.) So now I’m asking myself "Is that all it is to it? Or is there a particular decline in interest in Inklings?
Or is it something else, like a “seasonal” variation?
Is posting about an odd train-of-thought like this a sign of getting old?
