Wonderment, not so much. Phatic... not in the sense of the word I would think of. For the rest, absolutely. I was in need of catharsis last night, and your blog was the last, tired stop on a quest therefore. You have been of service, and I thank you.
For those academically interested, my catharsis began here, in the comments to the post Looking-Glass World, then went here, in a post that I imagine will be obvious. Then, I came here, to your blog, and rested.
If need be, you may edit or remove entirely my post with my blessing.
