It is kind of amazing that it has been a year since I started this blog. I had scant idea what I would do with it and would not have imagined what I have done with it and where it has taken me. It was in posting a comment to a post by Hasty that I got caught by the prompt to create it and thought, “Oh, what the heck, why not?” Along the way I’ve discovered so many special people and their writing, a community of thinkers and feelers, their prose and poetry, humor and struggles, stories and observations, and the irresistible urge on a daily basis to share them on and offer support and encouragement. Oh, and appreciations for my own writing. Thank you all, readers and writers. Now, begins Year 2 and its discoveries. The time to speak of many things continues.
