Acrosstics are my calling, or at least the most remarkable of my more general writing skills. Is that an ego booster for me? Nah, more likely a form of 'personal meditation'. I do it to unwind, and because I feel I should do it, even though I keep my reasons to do it to myself. It is a redundant activity, along with doing chores, and sending part of my relative wealth to support my future wifey and her family out across the globe.
