This is a short and sweet post to express my gratitude for you being part of my writing, blogging, and self-discovery. Along the way, I’ve discovered new joys, new pains, hidden strength and amazing friends on WordPress. Thank You!
My blog was started just over 4 years ago as an attempt to find peace, joy and new creative expressions. I’ve had a blast writing about topics ranging from compassion, love and peace to inspiring stories with occasional forays into play and silliness. Poetry is the most soulful for me, but I don’t feel inspired to write poetry daily like some of you. Playful posts seem the most refreshing. And I typically write what is real and bubbling inside me, rather than some prescription of what I should write. I believe it’s important that we honor our inner muse and spirit.
Admittedly, I still find it incredibly difficult to know my highest dreams, desires and choices. This is one of my persistent challenges and frustrations, but that is a post for another day. Today, we are celebrating our blogging community. Without your likes, comments and connections, I would not have persisted in this blogging journey. You are the reason I write and continue. Thank You!
Stats are a fun way to watch the growth of my blog and community. Together, we’ve built over 1007 subscribers, 9593 visitors and 36,422 views. Not bad for something I started 4 years ago on a whim and nudge from a friend. Thank you Eric Huber!
A Parting Muse
for now I must bid adieu.
this day I’m feeling blue
for treasures lost and true
tempered by thoughts of you
you make the days shine
in this stretch of time
your gifts a treasure sublime
for this heart of mine
Thank you my dear readers, writers and friends. May we share the journey with as much love, fun and compassion as possible.
