editorial aside

wonder how far I can push.
I've done over 540 of these,
not counting editorial asides.
#100 for person -- even if it's
year 2 so second #100 under
new numbering -- is daunting.
magic numbers, should I stop
arbitrarily at 600?

I don't know you that well--actually, not at all. But I doubt you could stop completely if you wanted to.

Do it as long as - and/or only when - you enjoy it.

I like to read them!

Have been thinking that when I finally drag my way to the end of my 365 verse portraits, I might continue on, or as you have, change the parameters somewhat and include anecdotes etc.

But if it has palled, I would suggest taking a break and then coming back when and if you feel like it. I'm guessing that sooner or later, something will occur to you and one of these will start writing itself in your head.... :)

would it be arbitrary if you decided to stop?

Lodo, I think you nailed my nature. ;)

hm, Jon, you're thinking.

I have taken a break for a couple months, pre-writing and leaving them to autopost.

it's useful and I've thought a few time over the last couple years that there can't be that many more possible and then more comes...
