Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
I found it rather poignant to have noticed at this late hour that I have 100 posts and 150 followers. How cool is that. I should be in bed but as with most of my late nights, I find the most interesting people out there in this world. For that, I am grateful.
When I began this blog, I had no idea where it might lead or even why I started it. Set it up rather casually, however, I no longer take it casually. I have met the most incredible people, all with their own stories, proclivities, talents, insights, challenges, hope, and expertise. What a fine group of people you are. I thank you for the opportunity to join in your words and lives.
Please click on all lines and phrases below to take a most incredible journey through life, living, eating, and possibly finding camaraderie in a difficult world. I know I have missed many of you due to the late hour. Gladly there are more milestones to come for recognition. Meanwhile, click on the underlined sentence fragment to get to the site.
from Istanbul, allowing us to tour a fascinating part of the world,
in England letting us live the life of a farmer with a most intelligent wife
an 84 year old women in Green Bay, Wisconsin writing her heart about life and past
moms living through the changes with kids,
and even more kids and jobhunter as well,
book readers, more book readers, lions on the porch
missing person searches with the occasional glimpse of the dad in love with his kids
comics, scorpions, and guy stuff in Arizona
just an all and out liar, and a lovely friend
a writer that offers a mix of ideas and adds the Indian culture
one women who can lose weight, that I envy,
a devoted grandmother and wife who shares tales of her past and present
a serious memoirist
a Gumbo Writer and a
talented writer and fellow night owl
One finding a way to make to the world a better place
a studier of the writing craft
one who may not want to be on her own, but now is, in the cold, and doing well.
one who finds footprints in the snow
one whose incredible photographs and dedication to other writers is most welcome
poets through back doors
the hatching writer
a broad with a smart mouth
a writer honing the craft and discovering the publishing world
soul searchers on the road
one who feed us and lets us party ala Mardi Gras and gumbo
rebels with causes
a tart with a sense of humor
one who teaches Up North, there, and makes us laugh with her insights
one who teaches, raise kids, and reaches out from an island
I've tired out on the evening and have missed many of you, but thank you for making this blog experience most interesting. I am impressed with this opportunity and the resurgence of people needing and "listening" to people.
How can a year and 100 posts have passed so quickly? Onward we march. May the force be with us!
